timing belt visual
Posted: Wed Jan 04, 2017 5:38 pm
I have bought an '88 ae92 gts. the previous owner had no idea if/when the timing belt had been replaced. the shop manual implies (by saying to mark the direction of rotation if one intends to reuse the timing belt) that one can visually inspect the belt and, if satisfied with its appearance, let it keep spinning. I feel I'd know what a bad belt would look like, but if the belt doesn't look bad, how often should it be inspected? Should I just bite the bullet and replace the belt?
