Is it worth changing the water and oil pump on my engine before it goes back in the car? im doing the timing belt (yet to decide on brand, HKS bit pricey for a belt).

Cheers
Ross.

If you have the engine out then it's probably worth doing, I would have done the belt with the engine in but now it's out you might aswell. Just use a OEM belt like blueprint or get a Toyota, both will do the job just as well fitted properly.

sorry should have been clearer. i bought a replacement engine off a member on here.

so ive got the new one (off the imoc forum) in the garden, and the original still in the car.

i plan on building the new engine up on the engine stand. so belts etc can be changed nice and easily.

Sure, ill stick to a decent brand for the belt. just need to find the belt part number and have a look at pricing.

Yeah, the belts aren't expensive. If you're doing the full service don't forget the tensioner pulleys and hydraulic tensioner itself. If history is a bit unknown then it's worth just replacing everything so you know it's good [thumleft]

Im doing the same but with my original engine out the car.
Ive got to get an exhaust stud repaired which means head off...which means new hg and bolts and so i thought might as well do cambelt too so might as well take engine out.
Also gonna get a seal and gasket kit and renew them all while its out and new clutch if i can find one for a decent price.

Problem is you need to set a limit on where you gonna stop refurbing. I was thinking water and oil pump too but do they really need doing? Mines on 130k (mix of miles and km) and not showing any signs of failure anywhere so it is literally routine for me.

Considering oil pump is a sump off job if you're going to do it then this is the time to do it. Not about removing a sump with some oil still in it (as it never drains fully) from underneath when you can do it in relative comfort on an engine stand [thumleft]
