Default Tundra Timing Chain

A potential buyer wants to know if the timing chain and water pump were
serviced at 90K?

Excerpts below from this forum--
http://www.toyotatundraforum.com/tun...elt-model.html

Tundra 2000-2004 V6 Belt
2005-2008 V6 Chain
2000-2008 4.7 V8 Belt
2007-2008 5.7 V8 Chain

Per Toyota:
If your vehicle is a 1999 model year or newer and is equipped with a
timing belt, you should replace it every 90,000 miles or six years,
whichever comes first.

Quote:
For all other Toyota vehicles equipped with a timing belt, we
recommend that the timing belt be inspected with the other drive belts
at 60,000 miles or four years, whichever comes first, and every 15,000
miles thereafter and replaced as necessary. Because the costs involved
with inspecting the timing belt may be similar to those of having it
replaced, many customers may find it more cost effective to replace
the timing belt at 60,000-mile intervals.

Should the timing belt break while you are driving the vehicle, severe
engine damage could result. The higher the speed, the more extensive
the damage could be. ( There is some disagreement on this and even
Toyota lists some engines as the non-interference type)

If you have additional questions, please refer to your Scheduled
Maintenance Guide or Owner's Manual Supplement or contact your local
dealer.

If your vehicle is equipped with a timing chain rather than a timing
belt, there is no prescribed replacement interval.

If one is going to inspect the belt, one should just replace it:
getting at the belt is a pain in the ass, and there's no point in
doing the job twice.
