FIRST T-BELT CHANGE

Recommended Posts

I changed my first timing belt, water pump and new alternator belt for the first time over the weekend. Friday I started tearing it apart, then went to eddyville and watched the drag races. Woke up first thing saturday morning and finished it. The only tricky part was aligning up the bottom cam gear and have it not move when pulling belt over the cam. Id say it took a total time of 4 or 5 hours at my house garage. Id say I did a pretty good job as the car is still running.

I did I aligned it pretty good I would take a pic of I but it put together rigt now I just finished taking of the carpet... I'm thinking it might also be the returning spring from the throttle and or the wire, might be loose or worn out. And like I mentioned before the last time I adjusted the t-belt the rpm goes up and down and the motor shakes..
