<<  have received conflicting 
 information concerning timing belts.  One mechanic explained that the

 this, saying damage will occur at any speed. >>

Ever hear of a guy named Murphy ???

Naturally aspirated usually ok, Turbo unless you only "derailed" the belt
with snow while cranking to start ( like I did one time ) don't count on 
it still running unless you can find someone who sells compression
in 5 gallon pails.
