i don't know specifically if there is a "belt", but something would have to open/close the valves at the right time. there is also a position sensor that tells the computer what position the engine is in, so the computer can deliver the fuel at the right time.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Cool pic. Here's a Q for you. Is it cost effective to rebuild the 2002 7.3. I was told otherwise. Can you buy remanufactured 7.3's at a good price or better to buy new. Thanks BGJ

With 20k on your truck why are you even thinking of a rebuild?

A rebuild kit from IH is only about $1300 or so, maybe $1000 in labor work on the block and heads and your in it about $3000 after parts and gaskets...

Thanks, Just cause this "Know it all guy" told me that these engines are throw aways when they finally wear out. Thanks
