Might already be posted here, but I want to give a heads up to folks using the DAYCO timing belts. I purchased mine from RA in May 2017 and it failed prematurely 22,022 miles later in July 2021, just over 4 years from initial install. (btw, RA warrants this TB 12 months, unless its part of a water pump/TB kit, then lifetime - I purchased the kit). I've attached photos of failed belt. What was unusual was the lateral cracks visible along with massive linear failure of the entire belt. The engine had been running perfectly the entire 4 years with no overheating/abnormal noises or any other abnormalities whatsoever. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar failure?
