Timing Belt Kit
Hey guys,
Quick question - is there timing belt kit that includes the pulleys/tensioner, belt and water pump? If so, where is the best place to buy it?

Got all my parts on ebay. Every1 said ebay was crap and blah blah blah but its still running strong. Same exact gates TCK 294B kit u can buy anywhere else, it was like $95 shipped. No, it wasnt a 5 yr old kit left sitting on a shelf with a dried up belt. Water pump also ebay, it was ford oem, got it for $65 shipped. Check out my thread

Ordered my gates tck294B kit off amazon and I think the motorcraft waterpump off rockauto. The kit includes the belt, tensioner and pully.

Check out Rockauto but also cross shop part numbers to find the best deal. I recommend the Gates brand. Any kit you get will most likely not have the water pump included you'll have to get that separate. I bought the gates water pump and it was identical to the stock one I pulled off.

This is the kit a I put on a local members SVT last month

Here are the water pumps as you can see they are identical.

Here is a pic when I did my timing belt in Ole' Yeller'. I bought the Gates Blue racing belt which I wouldn't recommend unless your doing a show car, it gets dirty rather quickly lol. Everything besides the t-belt was only 50 bucks if I remember right off of Rockauto 2-3 years ago when I bought everything. I had to piece together my own kit since I was using the blue belt and it doesn't come in a kit.

Thanks for the tips. I don't really need the water pump, but if I'm in there that deep already..

I'll probably end up shopping around, as suggested - either eBay or Amazon for the kit, and then I'll probably see what price I can get on the pump through a dealer (a friend is a mechanic at an independent shop and gets a discount).

The "cam locking tool" or whatever you want to call it -- required, or is the homemade tool good enough?

The cam tool and timing pin are definitely helpful and not that expensive. I bought it on amazon for $20 part number was OTC 6486. Same tools used in the non-SVT.

I highly recommend you get a timing tool, for 30 bucks or less you can't go wrong though some have made a home made tool. I'd use the tool especially since you have a SVT. I've got the OTC tool and it works great and I have timed a zetec's and SVT's a dozen times with it, with great success.

Idk why you wouldn't just keep with motorcraft when you go through Steve over at tousley ford it's really not that bad of a price. Might as well keep everything ford no?? But each to their own...
