what's the problem with that?  is it that hard to put the belt back on
if it falls off?  in fact, wouldn't taking the belt off give you more room
to work?

i ask these questions because i'm preparing to do the timing belt and
i'll replace the CPS while i'm at it.  looking at the writeup for
replacing the timing belt, i don't see why there's an issue with the
timing belt coming off, as long as the camshaft and crankshaft don't
change position.
