Re: timing belt questions

How will he set the belt tension then? I would suggest that he remove
the water pump, clean the face of the block and replace the o-ring water
pump seal if he really can't get the pump. However, there really is no
excuse not to change the idler and the pump. I just got everything
including the belt and a camshaft seal for $80 from Rod at TPC.
