Since my Cat is about halfway back together, next thing to do is the timing belt. Unfortunately, no one around here rents the kit I need, and buying one is out of the question. So, is there anyone on here that rents them for just the cost of a refundable deposit? There is a guy in the UK that does, however the cost of shipping is killer to get it here and back.

Oh my..... it took me 6 months alone to sell enough stuff to get the $285 I just spent to order all my parts, even though I get that $119 back....I just don't have the $119 to do it.

Anyone wanna go 50/50 on it? Someone can send me half the money, I'll rent it, use it, send it to you, you use it and send it back, and I'll paypal your 50% back to you. Unless ledfix can rent it for like 14 days.... I only need it for 1-2 days.

Search for OTC 6687 on Google and these go for like $78US or so.

I got one but I am near Toronto, Ontario and the shipping is terrible from here to anywhere south of Niagra Falls.

Good luck.

Actually, I'd be glad to pay the shipping here and back to borrow it. I can guarantee you that I won't rip you off! If you want to borrow it to me, let me know via PM and I'll get back to you. I know there are a lot of people out there that would steal it, but I'm not that kind of person... it's bad enough I had a hard time getting the money to order the parts I needed....plus I'm a strong believer in Karma.

I need the timing belt kit also, it seems no mechanics around my area have them to do the work.
If you are near Toronto I will be happy to help if I am helped back to change my belt.

I can not loan it till I do my belt over the next 3 or 4 weeks.

Sorry I am not rolling in cash either ;)

That's not a problem at all... I won't be able to mine for at least a month!

Yeah, I saw that... I just simply don't have the $300 refundable deposit to shell out to rent one, even for a few days.

It's bad enough I had to scrap a car I had, sell parts off of it, and sell a few prized possessions just to order what I have for the car now.
