    Haha and that attention to detail is why your truck is at almost 600k

    I have/used the factory service manual, but the timmah! video has all the information you need (torque specs etc). Hardest part for me was getting the rear bolt on the timing belt tensioner.

    This makes me feel better about mine! No idea when it was last changed, but doesn't show any signs of cracking at 195k so it can't be original...

    Got the job all done and truck running. Overall it was much easier then I thought it would be, also I realized that at some point this has been done before to my truck, I thought it was original, previous owner had never done it and had owned the truck since around 45k, kinda strange that it was done that early in the trucks life, but the water pump that was in it was marked 6/02. It runs a bit better now too since it’s actually perfectly timed.
