Hi all folks .. learning about my new cruiser .. I have a lots of question but I start here ..

I'm not sure how much time have my timing belt ( 1HD-T engine ) but I have invoices about engine overhaull las year at april .. so I thought the previus owner change it at this time.

well the question is .. I see in my dash a T-belt light so this light come on when is time to change the T-belt . ?

What kind of parameters use this light/sensor to know when is time to change the t-belt if is the target of this light in the dash of course ..

thanks to all
 
Timing belts are around 300-400 to buy. I almost put one in my V6 Toyota.

then there is labour. SO unless you do it yourself. Expect about a grand.

Now someone with a 1hd-t might be able to give accurate figures.

Thanks. $300-400 about what I figured.
I would probably do it myself.
Done a few timing belts on gassers. Pretty easy.

I imagine a diesel would be about the same amount of work.
The only difference is I would have to bring it to a shop after to time it.
I wish I could time diesel myself but I can't.
I could probably keep it pretty close if I was careful, but I don't have the tools needed to time the injector pump. I wish timing a diesel was like timing a gasser.

The last time I had a 3B timed it cost $200 CDN with tax.
He spent 2 hours, but he also spent some time looking into a glow plug problem. I took it to a specialty diesel shop.

In fact, I wonder if I would even need to retime a diesel after? As long as I keep everything lined up with the timing marks, how much would it really move? .5 of a degree? What do you think? Would you need to retime it after.

Cheers,
Nick

$60. Sound great Wayne. I know who I will be calling everytime I turn over a 100,000 KM on the odo.

Heck for $60 I almost want to buy a spare and just keep it around.

Also, what is this talk about the Timing belt light.
Am I to understand that it will turn itself on when it needs a new belt?
If so how do you turn it off? Just pull both batteries to reset it?

Cheers,
Nick
 
$300-400 seems really high for a timing belt. I think the belt for the 2L-T retails for about $90.

Nick, to reset the timing belt light you pull the little rubber plug from the glass on your instrument panel and reach in with a long, thin tool to push the little button beside the odo.

wow, my price was way off. I was priced on a Toyota belt, for a 3.0 V6

like I said not accurate.

My belt for 1HD-FT was around Waynes price, I think it was 50 something so I did get a spare, you never know when you will not be able to get another one :doh:

sorry, you guys are getting screwed.

pn 13568-19065 are $26.60 retail list (bought one 4/05) and take about 30 minutes to install. I'd also check the spring length per service manual and replace as needed (older 1990-92 springs seem to wear more, all I have measured have been out of spec).

btw, plastic cover is 11321-17010, $56.62 retail
bolts (3x) are 90109-06046 and 66 cents ea.
washers (3x) are 90210-08019 and cost $2.01 retail
clips (4x) are 90468-05034 and cost 69 cents retail

obviously, discount prices are back 20-25%.
 
how can this be so cheap for a T-belt?????


My dam powersteering/alt belts are same or more.

I don't think this adds up.

Now I got to check what they cost too........time to get a 1hz
 
It's a good idea to baseline your T-belt if you just bought your LC. They don't cost much but the cost of having one break on you is potentially astronomical in comparison. My OEM cost me less than $ 50 a couple of years ago and is good for 100,000 kms. You could probably keep the old belt as a spare or emergency but if a belt breaks on you in use, you're probably screwed anyway. The tensioner should also be changed as it's also relatively cheap but a real pain to deal with if it breaks.

The T-belt alarm in the dash needs to be re-set at the time of change. No harm if you forget, but alarming for those who don't know that you already changed the belt.

Thinking around 60 bucks from Ens Toyota for the 1HZ we did.

Second one we did was about 62.00 if memorey serves me.

Pretty strait forward job, just remember having to pull some accessories including water pump, might as well throw a new one on.

I second Rick's price. You guys ought to be buying this stuff from Toyota more often. We need this part moved from a "D" inventory to at least a "C" status.

Oh yeah the tension spring is 90207-27003, $6 US retail. How did you get 90207-27001, Rick?

Dave
 
i gave my local Toyota a call and the belt is $50 (the other source was an different shop selling Toyota parts) and the spring is $8 my cost.
thanks for the heads up guys...

Dave the part number you gave does not exist. the proper number is 90507-27001 from 90-01 to 92-09. the closest number to yours Dave is 90507-27003 which is the tensioner for 92-09 to 98-01
