I'm ready to buy the parts for this job on my daughter's '02 wagon (Zetec, I believe?). I've got a 21mm wrench to go on the cam flats. Do I also need to buy the camshaft alignment tool?Originally Posted by whynotthinkwhynot
There is a 13/16 or 21mm flat spot cut into the cams between cyl 1 and 2. It's easy to miss, but it's there. Use that to hold the cams still. Do not use the camshaft alignment tool to hold the cams still. Yeah, some guys might not break the back off their cams using the tool, but do you want to take that chance yourself?
I found this thread for Zetec T-belt work.
It lists all of these extra parts:
Timing belt kit from NAPA, contains the belt, idler pulley and tensioner
Serp belt tensioner
Serp belt idler pulley bearing, no one in town had the assemble but found the bearing.
P-side motor mount
Her wagon has ~145k mi on it, so I'll replace the water pump at the same time. Should I do everything on the above list?
