Re: timing belt gauge

Unfortunately I do not have the service info for a 91 T-3.
I would recommend either...
1)https://www.ebay.com/itm/1991-Chrysl...qha:rk:98:pf:0

2)http://alldatadiy.com/?affiliate_id=..._id=2579244120

The part # for the Miller Tool is C-4188 and it is discontinued by Miller-SPX tools, it also says "without adapter"?
I did find two sources online.

Miller Special Tools C4188 Gauge Belt Tension W/O Adapter

Re: timing belt gauge

I use a dial test indicator mounted to a magnetic base, common tool, and useful for many other engine and trans related repairs as well. I only have 8V engines though but don't see why this won't work for any timing belt engines

I do not even know what adapter they are referring to, if someone has the FSM it will show all tools needed with the Miller Tool part #.

Re: timing belt gauge

The TIII does not require any adapter. The tension gauge has two "feet" that sit on top of the belt and a third "foot" that you depress below in the middle. When you release the third foot is puts tension on the belt and shows reading.

Use the gauge between the two top cam gears and without any load on the cams. ie. rockers backed off.

Re: timing belt gauge

Back in the day I believe I ordered the Miller Gauge and this is what showed up.

It is the exact equivalent if not the exact gauge as the Miller C-4188

It is the tool recommended by Chrysler to check tension on the TIII, but it's a tension gauge, so you could use it on any belt, no?
