I ordered the $193.00 AC Delco Timing Belt Component Kit last night over the phone from Rock Auto.
As you may notice, there is 3 Kits listed on their website, one being 193, and the others being 276, and 279 respectively.
I spoke to the Customer Service Rep. and he stated that this dramatic increase in the price may just be in the case of them not having the $193 in stock, so they would have to order, and the ordered kit would cost more; hence, the extra $100.
i ordered it, again, blindly, not having much choice but to believe the guy.
My question is whether these Timing Belt kits were ever revised? because it seems that the same kit fits all the 3.0L engines.
Could the $193 Kit be from the engine version that were on recall?

okay, so i received the Timing Belt Kit. It came in a big AC Delco box, but inside the big box were other small boxes with individual components, and they aren't AC Delco made - they're some other brand.

I used the kit you have with no problems at all, on a 97. The belt will have 2 sets of marks to accomandate the later year models.

yeah, mine's a 2000.
i just found it odd that these parts aren't really AC DELCO even though they're in an AC DELCO box.
