3.0L V6 Timing Belt Kit

Shopping around for a timing belt kit and found these:

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sk...%26+Drivetrain

Is the price good? I have 112K miles on my 04 and it's time to replace my timing belt.

Thanks in advance.

I just did mine last weekend and it was a good days worth of work. Make sure that you order the honda crank pulley tool, we had trouble with the strap method. Other then that, it was all pretty straight forward.

You can always use the old backyard method of holding the crank from turning. Remove spark plug or plugs. Find TDC on compression stroke for any cylinder. Turn engine forwards about 1/4 turn, then feed about 8-10 inches of small rope, nylon line or what ever into cylinder. Make sure you leave enough out of the cylinder so you don't loose it. Slowly turn the engine backwards until the rope is compressed between piston & cylinder head and the engine stops turning, this will hold the crank in place. Loosen the bolt. Reverse the process to tighten the bolt. Remember when tightening the bolt you must turn the engine backward before you insert the rope.

Guys, DO NOT do this with the J engines, or any honda engine for that matter, the amount of tourqe often needed to break the bolt free can exceed 800-1000ft lbs, using this method with this engine design will destroy the rod bearing, bend the rod, or even the wrist pin or piston, these engines are not built to take that kind of abuse like a old chevy 350 would.
