OOPS....my bad, for some dumb reason i was under the brief impression you were pulling the head, sorry bout that. Yes the timing belt pulleys (bearings) do wear out and can make a grinding or squealing noise if ignored for too long. before you remove the old belt, verify the valve timing...on the cam pulley there are 2 holes; one is for a 2E and the other is for a 3E. There is a indent on the cam bearing cap that can be seen when looking through the hole if the 3E mark is lined up properly...should be 12:00 position. You MUST verify these 2 marks after the new belt is installed( the 0 on the timing cover and the indent on the cam bearing cap)...double check if ya have to as these pulleys can and will move when installing a new belt. There is also a timing cover rubber grommet that fits around the motor mount....its kind of a pain but not impossible to put back but you should know about it.
Guess that's what that new noise is... :(

Hope that belt from Speedvision gets here sooooon!!!

HOpefully they can just be regreased....
Possibly, but it looked like they were sealed and trying to tear them apart or remove a seal would have caused permanent damage to the seal and to.......

We shall see... As soon as that timming belt from Speedvision arrives, it's going on and I'll have the mechanic inspect the gears.

Thanks for the info Jeff.. Much appreciated, as always.

Yes Troll. Yes.
