4cyl timing belt question.

Hi all,

OK, I just completed reading over the procedure for changing my cambelt
(and idler) on the 1.8L I4 in my 86 4ks.  There seems to be a lot of
babble in the doc about removing this gear and that, but frankly, it
looks like just pulling off the idler (which I'm replacing anyway, why
not for $14) should just allow the belt to slip on.

Am I missing something that makes it harder than it appears?

Thanks for any ideas or comments.
