Fyi Timing Belt And Rockercover Prices

do Nissan happen to sell timing belt kits as well? You wouldn't happen to know how much they were?

If by a kit you mean the timing belt+bearings, then no they don't. They'll get them in for you as a bunch of parts - but that's not what I'd call a 'kit'. AFAIC, buy the belt from Nissan, but get the bearings from a bearing specialist as that will be much cheaper than Nissan for exactly the same parts. Around $90 will be the retail price for the genuine belt and I paid just over $100 for the bearings from a local specialist.

So its $90 for belt, $100 for bearings + labor (which would cost normally how much?) and that’s all that’s required when changing a timing belt?

well make sure they change the bearings and the stud aswell....while your at it do the cam seals and the crank seal......oh and might as well do the water pump and the fan belts aswell.......then of course the price goes up....thats why the price varies a lot doing this sort of job....some of us prefer to do the whole lot as opposed to doing half of it.....i mean theres nothing like doing it then having something you already had off fail because you shouldve replaced it

thanks steve L. :blink:

Dezz, I wouldn't think it would be too much more, as I'm quite sure in the case of the RB20/25's you have to remove the waterpump/alternator, powersteering and airconditiong belts before taking off the cam and crack covers anyway. All they have to do is put new belts on when they are reassembling instead of the old ones, if you buy dayco belts I would say that the three together shouldn't cost much more than $70 give or take...

FYI im getting my timing belt changed at UPI while my car is getting compliance...$300 supplied and fitted. when ive head prices of $450+ !

they are probably doing water pump too, which is highly advisable

I'd be a tad more than $70 worth of labour

    • Oof, glad that it seems have gone much better than it could have. I have seen some pretty terrible tow truck handling just as a bystander. Zero fvcks given and no regard for the cars at all. Also broke down with fuel pump issues the other week as the wiring was on its way out. Roadside assistance guy used to have a Skyline and was looking at Stageas on the market. The tow truck driver also used to own a high powered Skyline and was telling stories about that. Apparently too fast to have any issues with being pulled over... Makes all the difference dealing with people who actually know their cars and care.
    • I had quite the scare last night. I was on the highway just toying around with an Audi. Right after an extended WOT pull, I lost all power. I cruised to a stop on the side of the highway and realized I had no fuel pressure. I keyed on/off a few times and could hear both pumps priming but pressure was still non existent. When you need a towing on a highway in Quebec, it's an automatic call to the provincial police. They don't mess around, they'll gladly destroy your car to get it off the highway asap. I pulled my bumper off as quickly as I could as to not have it destroyed getting it onto the truck. I got lucky as the tow driver was a car guy. He entertained the police while I finished up popping my bumper off and sticking it in my window. As we started taking off, the police drove by the tow driver to tell him we couldn't leave with the bumper sticking out the window. He pulled off on the first exit he saw, did a u turn and got right back on the highway in the direction of home lol.  With no leak insight, the only thing I could think of was a torn FPR diaphragm or a popped hose inside my fuel tank. This morning on removal of my Radium twin pump hanger, one pump hose was completely shredded and the other was on the verge of the same fate. Both hoses had swelled to double their size... I have no idea how I ended up not using submersible hose but clearly that's what happened. To make things even worst, Radium supplies submersible hose with the hanger... So either they supplied the wrong hose or I had the wrong hose laying around when I assembled it.  Looking over logs, my fuel pressure dropped to 0 roughly 10 seconds after a WOT pull. I was cruising and I'm confident the motors fine. Had that happened 10 seconds earlier, I'd more then likely be pulling the motor out. New hose arrives tomorrow, I'll put it back together then. 
    • Post 2 in this thread is my C34 with a R34 manual console, you can see it is a tiny bit different but not noticeable, and clips straight in. Only issue is you have to move the g sensor a little with the manual console.
