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.
