Cambelt change

Kirk,
I can only talk for the 1HZ engine. It is not a great problem to do
but lacks the handy threaded holes in cogs to lock it all solid like
a CSA XUD diesel. Though the alignment marks on the cogs are plain to
see. BUT most important is to replace the tensioner roller assembly
at the same time. When I removed mine, the bearing seemed OK but the
roller surface was blued. It would not have been much longer before
it started to hair crack.
Cheers

I've just had mine done @ 120k miles (sorry, paid someone to do it so I haven't a clue how hard it was, although he reckoned it was easy: just clamp pump & camshaft in position - he didn't say how though!)
I got them to replace the tensioner, roller and a.n.other bit that I forget the name of. The belt was =A328, the other bits were =A3143! This is for the 1HD-FT engine, but I don't suppose the other engine variants will be significantly different.
Looking at them afterwards they seemed absolutely perfect (the roller surface was fine), and apparently the normal Toyota advice is to check them for wear and to replace only if necessary. The mechanic (competent) said that had it been his vehicle he would have been happy to leave them for another 60k miles.
So is it worth it? Well I did it and, as the mechanic & I agreed, it would he one seriously expensive engine to fix if the belt went and the valves hit the cylinders.

I did mine recently and it's easy enough. I don't clamp stuff, just mark
them with a blob of red paint. My tensioner bearing was very rough so I
replaced that as well. Hardest part is getting the spring on/off the
tensioner.
