Re: timing belt slipping
The same thing happened to me. I replace the head gasket and removed the entire top end. I also had factory AC which at that time I took off. I put everything back together minus the AC pulley and my timing belt was walking and ate up the timing belt cover. What gives? I have never seen anything like that. It hasn't damaged the belt, I looked at it and it is fine but melted part of my cover. I have another cover and will be replacing the belt for insurance puroses soon. Hope it doesn't eat this cover too.
By the way, does anyone know if the Samurai motor is free spinning if you should ever break a timing belt?
