Timing Belt - As easy as it seems?
I plan on changing my timing belt tonight - is it as easy as it seems in the Haynes book? Just get it to TDC, take off fan & fan clutch, remove timing cover, loosen tensioner, and change the belt, right? (this is an '87 sammy, NO a/c)
also, do i REALLY need to loosen all the valve adjustments first? that doesn't make sense to me. a BIG THANKS!!
It just seems too simple - i'm used to timing chain being an all-day ordeal on my toyota! I'm in south raleigh in case you feel like helping & drinking beers!
