Timing Belt Tensioner

I am going to be putting in an oil pump into my new used 4g and to my understanding, it requires removal of the timing belt. I plan on putting on a new belt & water pump if that is the case. I was also thinking about saving myself even more future hassle and going ahead and doing the auto to manual tensioner swap in the process.

I've done a bit of research on the auto - manual swap and the only write-up i found was the one linked in this forum, which is awesome and seems very straightforward to do... With the engine out. Now, my question to all of you is this: how bad is it to do with the engine still in the car and do you have any suggestions or experience to share about it? I would think it wouldn't be bad at all once the belt and everything is off, but I haven't taken the wheel off and taken a look for myself.

My initial plans for this car was removing the engine and doing a rebuild due to no oil pressure. But after looking over the online manual and seeing the diagram of oil flow for the H22a1, I believe it's just the pump. So i'm going to go ahead and do that for now.

I apologize if my post bounced around a lot, I was never good at putting together paragraphs. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Re: Timing Belt Tensioner

As long as you take the necessary steps to get the timing belt off, like loosening the motor mount to drop the engine low enough to get the crank pulley off, it's just as simple as if you were changing everything without the conversion.
There will probably be a couple hitches you run into, because the tensioner pulley on the H23 is a bit larger than the H22 so it makes the belt a bitch-and-a-half to get on for some people. Also, the block off plate the conversion kit comes with is pointless, you'll notice the walkthrough left it out.

Here's a direct post from the thread linked below.

What Timing Belt for Manual Tensioner Conversion?

Also, I'm sure you've come across info about the crank pulley removal tool-this was a necessity for me and would recommend it if you're going to be doing this kind of work yourself in the future.
