There seems to be a very narrow line between simplicity with reliability 
and complexities and failures that seem outlandish.   It seems when you 
get mechanical devices on the leading or cutting edge; one should kind 
of expect some % of risk and disaster.   But timing belts aren't cutting 
edge.  And after 10+ years of ABS units; one would think that there is a 
bit of reliability built in.    I just made that fatal step; belieiving 
that reliability comes with experience and engineering.

Good luck guys
