15 Minutes to check timing prior to timing belt replacement---What are you guys smoking???

Took 4 hours to remove belts and plastic covers!!

Now how do you remove/replace timing belt that runs thru the AC mounting bracket??

Nothing said about this, Does AC and Alternator have to come off along with the aluminum bracket for them?

How about draining the coolant before removing the bracket as I loosened one of the bracket bolts and coolant began to run out!

The other bracket mount is a stud, how is this going to allow bracket to come off engine to allow belt to be removed/installed?

Even the ‘84 shop manual does not show a stud/nut and only 2 short bolts.

1984 Rampage--After 4 total days I am ready to snug up the old belt and reassemble then get rid of it!!------One owner, 84k verified no rust miles!

Thanks for the reply, one of the 4 bolts holding the AC/ALT bracket goes right into the water passage just above the 3 top bolts for the water pump,the other bolt is a stud with a nut.
While waiting on a revelation on how to get the timing belt off, I needed to change the leaking water pump, broke 2 of the 9 bolts were so tight I needed a breaker bar to get them out. Drilled and re-tapped them, that is how I finally figured out complete front disassembly of accessories and mounting bracket, verified the afore mentioned bolt that goes into the water passage!

After re-assembly back to trying to get more than 10 mpg from the new Weber carb---76 miles--1/2 tank of gas!! (I live at 9800 ft elevation).
