    I was worried about it cause our daughter goes to bed early and her room faces the front yard, but we haven't gotten one tonight. Last year we got a hundred lol. Covid I guess, there are houses sending candy down slides from their porch to the kids lol

    That's sad. We use to take my nephew around Arcadia. Some of the best trick or treating. People would hand out beer to the adults. Maybe next year.

    If I'm reading the fsm and Adventure Taco's timing belt guide right both camshaft pulleys and crankshaft timing gear notches should align to set cylinder #1 to TDC. So it's looking like the R camshaft pulley is a bit off? This is how the truck currently sits with the old tensioner and belt untouched. The notches are all perfect on the L pulley and crankshaft timing gear.

    well... the Mercedes might be receiving an engine swap.. its not looking good for the engine..

    a 2RZ and adapting it to the stock 4 speed auto or going 5 speed manual is possible...

    Interesting. So the truck got put up for auction in the mid 2000s after someone put almost 200K on it. So this gates timing belt is this motors second belt in ~300K miles.

    Yeaah. Old stuff has that problem. Are there any MB specific vendors? The british cars have a few like moss and victoria british that are pretty handy. Or are you just stuck with ebay?

    Any reason for a 2RZ? I guess it's a reliability improvement over stock and you aren't building a race car.
    Makes those guys that brag about having 300K+ on the original belt sound sort of silly.

    pelican parts. but what they have is super limited. it seems engine parts have all but dried up.. im seriously torn on what to do.. a toyota 4cylinder would be easy, a lexus v8 has been proven to fit, but more work.. or a more modern mercedes 4 cylinder is also apparently not terrible to do

    2rz power isnt a whole lot more than the stock engine. i dont want to overwhelm the axle since its a funky swing axle it isnt easily changed to anything else.

    plus im not building a race car. i want a cruiser.. the power train may be modern, but it will stay powersteering-less and all the interior will be factory as can be..

    i do think if a engine swap is happening, the car is going manual trans. to much work to make the modern autos play nicely and i also want to hopefully keep the speedo working correctly.. which means finding a way to make the speedo cable work and read properly
