Thread: Yammy Timing Belts

  1. #1

    Question Yammy Timing Belts

    My F100 (2001) has 450+ hrs on it. The manual says change it at 400. I ordered one on-line for $60. All I can see that there is to change this, is to mark the crank and cams and pop the old one off and the new one on. It has a spring loaded tensioner wheel. Has anyone here done this? Is this something only a dealer can do? I usually don't shy away from turning wrenches, however with the new stuff, I've found myself lacking a bit.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Default I have changed them

    On Honda 90's.
    Usually as long as you do not disturb the gears you should be good.
    Best way is to rotate the gears by hand till the timing marks line up BEFORE you pull the belt. This will give you an idea if they move. Pull the spark plugs and it is easy to turn over by hand. Loosen the tensioner, pull the belt, slide the new one on, tighten the tensioner.
    This is the process for a Honda. Should be the same for Yamis'

    Actually the manual says 1000 hrs or 5 yrs, whichever is first. Mines 9 yrs old. Figure better safe than sorry. I guess if these things break, it's ugly. I hope it goes easy. I'm curious what the maintence frequencies are for Hondas and Zukes. Anybody know?

    Doug,
    I did mine last year on a F150 wasn't too big of a deal. On mine I had to pull the flywheel and that was the hardest part.

    That's what I had hoped for.

    Another thing is there's a special tool to hold the flywheel while you take off the nut, I made one for mine. Not sure if it would fit yours but if you need one you can try it. If I remember taking that nut off was kind of a PITA, then it took a little with the puller to pop the flywheel.
    Let me know if you need the tool and I'll try to get it to you.
