Default '97 Camry Timing Belt & Water Pump Replacement - When? Cost?

5S-FE engine - this a non-interference type? Belt and pump replaced
together? When recommended? 4 hours for both sound right? Thanks. Ric

Yeah, the 5S is a non-interference engine.

I think conventional wisdom is to replace water pump when doing the
timing belt because the watert pump is off, though I've heard some
people say they replace the water pump every other time, not every
time.

Manual recommends replacing timing belt every 60,000, but again, others
wait 100,000.

60,000 miles = 100,000 kilometers ;^)
Timing belt in our Camry '92 was replaced every 100,000 kilometers, at
300,000km the water pump was replaced as well. Probably we should have
replaced the water pump at 200,000km to be on the safe side...

>>Manual recommends replacing timing belt every 60,000, but again,

To be clear, that should read "60,000 miles" and 100,000 miles".
