Timing belt cover.

Unread postby dudedog » Thu Apr 14, 2016 11:05 am

I would like an oppinion on something. On my last trip one problem I had was after I changed my head, I did not get the camshaft seal in. Expensive mistake figuring out that while traveling. My timing belt cover is missing spacers which I can work out now since home. I have driven since without the cover. I am tempted to just leave it off. The serpentine belt is not protected and it seems like there is a low chance of the timing belt getting damaged. One great advantage is I can keep a close eye on the belt. Thats the reason I lost my head ., Does this seem like a bad idea and should I get the cover on as soon as possible?

Hi Fred,

I'm not sure why you would want to leave the timing cover off. The shims must be easy enough to find, and risking getting something caught in the belt, like a shirt sleeve is just not worth leaving open. The belt itself will last longer with less uv light on it, and the cover adds protection from debris hitting. It is your mobile, but you asked for an opinion.

Cheers, Scott

Has anyone out there ever put up 12" x 12" Armstrong acoustic tiles on their RV ceiling? Or something similar? They're 1/2" thick and lightweight, tongue and groove. If so, what type of adhesive did you use? I'm considering it for my LeSharo/Itasca Phasar ceiling.
