Good stuff Tricky. I like it when you post detailed info like this. It saves getting the old manual out and what's even nicer is that I can blow up the pics to get a closer look at the parts.

John, what you might want to try is making the picture larger on your screen and adjusting the image to fit the page then press Prt Scrn key, then open Word, then paste the image onto a new page and then you can print a copy in Word.

Is it true that you have to replace the timing belt before 50.000 miles?

There isn't an actual specified time or mileage on changing the belts. Every time I have changed mine I've looked at the old belts and wondered? It is really for peace of mind when I change them. For the cost of changing them (if you do the job yourself) it's cheap insurance.

I will be attacking this project on my 84 soon. In my Haynes manual, it shows a "holder tool" used to keep the camshaft pully from turning while you loosen it's belt. I didn't see this in the instructions above. It this necessary? If so, where would you get one? Or, is there a work-around?

Also, it appears that the radiator will need to be completely removed. I'm assuming this is true too.

Finally, I'm somewhat concerned about the torque specs for the belt tension. The only thing that I see in my book is: "Belt slack - 3 to 5 mm (1/8 to 3/16 inch)". This could be a real pain in the neck to fire it up and find out that it's too tight or too loose.

Heck, I have 55K miles on my 85 Aspencade and am doing the PoorBoy installation, probably makes sense to replace the belts at the same time right?

I would seriously consider replacing the timing belts after a major overheat or if you run the engine frequently at high RPM change them at 24,000 miles as a safety precaution. For the cost of the belts 50,000 miles is not too often to replace them considering how much new valves cost and the price of all the associated gaskets. It's an easy, do it yourself job.

Can anyone tell me the dimensions of the timing belts?
I can't find original timing belts in eastern Europe so I'll try to find it by searching for the right dimensions. I've searched in Service Manual the dimensions but I couldn't find them.

Are looking for the Honda part or after market manufacturer

The Gates Part Number is 5043 or T070
Goodyear - 40272

I can imagine in your part of the world they might be tough to find under Honda but possibly these other may be easier to track down.

The timing belts are 33 inches long .75(3/4) of an inch wide with 88 Teeth.
So that is 33" x .75" by 88 teeth .

Hope this helps you find a replacement.
The other number that I have used is a Dayco brand belt part # 95070
