timing belt ?

Ok new here anyways I have a 99 SR5 and need to replace the timing belt. I know it's always recommended to go with toyota parts but as a cash strapped college student that's not always the easiest route. There are kits to replace the timing belt and water pump at autozone for 260 or there is this http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOYOTA-Timin...70865241552%26 . So I'm wondering if I should go the ebay route. Any ideas? Plus I'm somewhat mechanical (4 years helo mechanic) so I think I can tackle this project on my own. Figured it would cost a ridiculous amount to have a shop in Sacramento change it anyways.

I wouldn't skimp on the parts for this. You can get OE replacement kits on ebay too.

I was in the same boat with my 01, wound up going with one of the air cabman kits from eBay and loved it. All oem parts and and a whole lot cheaper than my dealer wanted. It came with every thing but the red antifreeze that I had to get from the the stealership.

During this video I was just a guy who knew a little here and there. I am currently going to a T-ten school. (Toyota sponsored). I'm going to try to make more videos when I get some free time.

Good video, however I would point out that you should never use a torque wrench to loosen any bolt or nut. While they can be used that way, it is not the correct way, and can cause damage and inaccuracies in the torque wrench.

Great video ! Thanks this is my next project on my truck. Not to hijack but Has anyone had any problems going with a aftermarket timing kit? I usually go oem but didn't know if anyone had issues with aftermarket.
