      I'm thinking of purchasing a van to convert into a camper. With the extortionate price of VW Transporters, I am considering keeping loyal to the blue oval and buying a Transit.

    48. Mazda E2000 Tming Belt

      Hi. I've offered to help my brother-in-law change the timing belt on his 1990 E2000 van tomorrow. Can someone tell me where to set the timing marks on the pulleys and is there anything else I need to know before we start? Limited budget, so a workshop manual was out of the question.
