The Timing Belt Chronicles

Part of getting the car ready is to replace the timing belts. The timing belts were done on the car about 500 miles ago, however it has been ten years since that happened. The belts do have a “shelf life” so I am replacing them so that I know what condition the belts are in. The service should also include adjusting the valves but since the valves were adjusted with the last major they should not have changed significantly in the last 500 miles, so I will fore go that part. Birdman has written an excellent step by step process for replacing the belts, you can find it on his service procedure page. The car is on jack stands and ready for new timing belts!
