timing belt deflection

I searched for this and didn't really find what I was looking for so, if any of you guys know, I was wondering what an acceptable amount of deflection on a timing belt is before it should be replaced. I dont know when mine was replaced last and would rather not spend the money if it is not needed. Also, is there any other way to tell if it's time to replace it by looking at it? Thanks in advance for the help.

Re: timing belt deflection

kinda hard to tell to be honest unless u see stuff like scaring of the belt and what not. timming belts rnt that expensive, i bought mine at honda for 65 bucks. i know its not what u want to hear but if u plan to keep the car for a while just change it. if u dont have the money to buy, i think u just added something to ur christmass list lol

Re: timing belt deflection

I know that as well, I know all about replacing a timing belt, I was just curious if I could avoid it if it was done recently before I bought the car. Thank you preludeperformance for actually giving me an answer to the question I asked.

really like what, if ur talking about the water pump and timeing adjuster then ur wrong. Most shops will convince u to doing the water pump the same because of labor prices. It short terms its cheaper for u to do it all at once than doing one one day and the other another day. But if he's doing it himself it really doesn't matter. As for the timing adjuster somepeople would reccommend it because it breaks very easily, if u know what ur doing u won't have a problem.

exactly

and in this case nobody knows how old stuff there is
so
its wise to change waterpump, 2 adjusters (and maybe that automatic one), crankshaft seal... new is always new and you can sleep nights much more easily
