I'm not surprised - I just checked the job out for Roger Galvin, although he 
only needs to get in to reseat the left (from front of engine) cover.
I was reading a document this morning that said the V8's timing belt was 
designed to last for the life of the engine.  Isn't this true of the timing 
belts on _all_ interference engines?

After all, if the belt lets go, the engine's dead.  Ergo - the belt lasted for 
the life of the engine.
