Not a Timing Belt

Hey guys, great show as always.

Regarding the belt I changed on my truck, it is not a timing belt but a serpentine belt (or sometimes called a drive belt). The timing belt is different, a much more involved job that usually also means replacing the water pump. Cost something like $1000 when I had my mechanic do it on our old mini van. Would definitely not try that myself.

Glad to hear that Ken survived toppling off his roof in the gale force winds.
