I used G-Strings, a guitar and bass tuner app for Android. It worked pretty well, but I had to hold it down close to the belt. One thing I tried that worked better than expected...if you can hear the ...

OK, for what it's worth, when I remeasured via the pitch method, I got 93 Hz, and on the Krikit, right at the low edge of the range, which is supposed to be 30 lbs.

I will try to do this over the weekend.

bureau13, As you also have the Krikit tool it would be interesting for someone to record and compare various tension readings with their resonant frequency. ...

When I loosened the alternator to remove the belt, I noticed that the black metal bracket/brace that attaches at the rear of the top/PS mounting ear on the alternator and the intake manifold is broken ...

For what it's worth, my twist method attempt had it set at 124 Hz. I backed it down to about 85 Hz. Honestly, how is this not the best method that everybody uses everywhere?

Perfect! That's the exact thread I remember, for some reason I couldn't find it. Of course, I don't remember what the frequency I measured was, but I can easily go back and check (I took just about e ...

I mean to give the old belt a twist before I took it off to "calibrate my twister" for that 90 degree twist method, but I forgot. So I ordered this Krikit thing from Gates, but it says it's ...

Carrera RSR, you nailed it. Vacuum leak...at least, I have one, and I clearly caused it, so I assume that is my problem.

It's that big red o-ring sealing the metal air tube to the throttle body. Pi ...

Very possible. I didn't take off too many lines, but I could have compromised something. I have a smoke tester so I will give that a go.

When it's missing, I do smell fuel. I can't localize it thou ...

Forgot to mention...I did have the "pipe" that comes from the turbo up and over the valve cover to the throttle body disconnected. I moved it a bit for some extra room. In case that gives an ...

In this particular case, the engine was cold. Cold start enrichment is a possibility, I think. I tried to retest that and get an accurate time, to see if it was consistent, but of course it was no lo ...

It definitely makes sense to check it. Maybe a silly question...but if this were timing would it not be more consistently off? I started it a bit ago and it ran perfectly at idle for about two minute ...

So I finished my timing belt job...timing shouldn't have changed, cam and crank gears line up properly, etc. I didn't touch the distributor, or anything like that. The car started right up, but sounds ...

That's a good idea...hadn't thought about the option of inserting a helicoil or similar in that hole, so the stud will fit. Definitely an option at some point.

When you do the timing belt, I'll be ...
