    Hi 4g63dsmer,

    We've heard of and read about people who have installed their 4G63 timing belts without the special tensioner tool, supposedly with satisfactory results. However, it really just amounts to "guesswork." I'm sure you know what happens when a timing belt breaks or slips on one of these engines - bent valves, dinged-up pistons and the resulting repair costs. Not pretty.

    Check around with some specialty tool manufacturers for this tool, or look on the internet (try eBay). In the end, doing the job right will save you money and lots of headaches!

    Thanks for your interest in Haynes!
