Timing belt party?
 
How much interest would there be in a timing belt party? I know it requires having multiple vehicles at 90k intervals, but if we could at least get two trucks it'd be worth it. I know my way around 3vz 5vz and the uz motors and would be happy to assist. I'm sure there are other folks that would be able to help out too. For the full shebang (timing belt, drive belts, water pump, idler bearings, coolant, tstat, and oil seals) it ran about $500 from Stevinson on a 5VZ.

I would be in. My lx470 is coming up on 180k. I was going to do the belt on my own but a wrenching day would be fun.

I have thinking about doing my 88 mini since it only has 161k on the original belt. if I can muster up $500 bucks for parts I'm in.

I might be in. I have, as my teenage daughters say, a crapton (pronounced "crap-ton", which apparently is a significant quantity) of projects and they're piling up. But if I can save a few bills with some more experienced folks I may be willing to crack into this.

80 needs brakes, suspension, birfs (at some point), as well as some want-to-do items (rust repair, various welding jobs), and the 99 T4R needs the timing belt, pulley, water pump service.

The 80 gets most of his next week before Argentine. Birfs and rust repair to follow.

If the timing belt party is late July-ish I am more likely in. No way before that.

So I'm thinking late July as well. Unfortunately I will not be able to host. Anyone have a good space for multiple trucks?

I have tons of space but we'd need to run extension cords for power. It's all outdoors, too. My place isn't ideal but it's available if there isn't a better option.

I have a three car garage that we can use. Justin, how much time are you thinking it would take a novice to get through the service? Also, I welded up an SST for holding the harmonic balancer when TheBoomBoom did the timing belt on his 5VZ - do you know if the holes (to secure the sst to the balancer) are the same distance apart from each other on the 2UZ?

Appreciated. It can be done with mostly hand tools, but I'll bring my compressor and IR air tools.

4 hrs for the 5VZ and longer for a UZ. The V8s are tricky

No idea, but I have a long chain wrench that holds better than anything.

The only other thing I'm worried about is coolant disposal. I'd like to make sure we're able to dispose of all of it properly.

Cool. I don't want to end up with a working session that runs longer than a day. Perhaps I'll pull my 2UZ out of the party to make room for another. These wrenching sessions are a bunch of fun and great learning experience but it gets stressful (to me) when they run much longer than expected. I can still host in my garage.

I replaced a thermostat housing O ring on the LX a couple of months ago and Groove accepted my old coolant.
