RE: 5K Timing Belt Replacement

Some 5cyl engines have a separate idler pulley that should be replaced
at the timing belt change. It is not certain to me which engines have
this pulley and which doesn't. My 87 5KT has one and Haynes shows an
early (83?) non-turbo European 100 without one. I assume your engine has
one, but to be sure remove the upper timing belt cover.
