Anyone have chilton\'s for 88 caravan?

I am doing a timing belt on a 2.5 and was hoping that someone had a tip on how to tension the timing belt idler. My FSM calls for a special tool: a wrench with a weight on the end which when attached to idler at <15* angle, applies the correct torque.


I'll not be buying one of these.

I was hoping that the chilton's had a backwoods solution for it.

If not, I'll just wing it. It's a beater van, after all.

As a general rule, the belt is tight enough when you can twist the long side of the belt 1/4 turn when the tension is right. Hope this helps. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Yup free. Did you think I'd post something you'd have to pay for. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I'm way too cheap for that. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
No comments needed after that. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

DD, on one of the pages at the top it said something like 'membership area'. I thought maybe you linked me in behind your signin page.

Sinbad, good call. That's exactly what the chilton's site said.
