I would go with the original one. Aftermarket will not fit right. And yes you should change the belt soon. You are originally supposed to change about every 60,000 miles but it will not break if you odn not drive herd. And dont listen to that guy at the top. It will not destroy your engine because the 7MGTE and 7MGE are not interfirance engines. But when it does break it is a pain. I would change it.

Dont listen to that meathead, yes it is important to get an original, the Toyota belt is copywrited to be able to make their own the aftermarket companies have to alter the specs, so in doing so the cogs on the belt wont fit right into the teeth of the pulleys (you dont want to skimp in this department!) a timing belt from the dealership is only $40.00 its worth not destroying your engine in the future... BUY THE REAL ONE IF U HAVENT ALREADY!!!!!!!

I'm considering buying a 1987 Toyota supra turbo. 81k miles. What major or minor issues can I expect or need to ask owner about ?


If you ask the owner for the faults he has had expect an out right lie as to nothing is wrong with the vehicle. With such low mileage better to ask why he is selling it. I suggest that the seller produces proof that he actually owns the car and is capable of selling it legally. Next take it for a good run ( not around the block) and be critical in listing all noises and problems you find. Next take it to a reputable mechanic for a frank appraisal of the faults and see what he comes up with. Any must do repairs should be deducted from the asking price as you will be stuck with that cost.. Considering the age and the listed mileage I am suspicious that the mileage has been tampered with as most cars average 15 to 25 k per year Be very cautious also because the parts supply for an 87 car has dried up and you will most likely only get second hand parts ( Panels)

Timing Dpecs for Toyota Supra 87 6 cylinder


1987 non-turbo: 10 deg Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) @700 rpm
1987 Turbo: 10 deg BTDC @650 rpm.

To set the timing, you will need to connect a jumper wire between terminals E1 and TE1 on the diagnostic terminal. This diagnostic terminal is located just aft of the engine compartment fuse box. It is a black plastic box marked "diagnostic" on the cover, which flips open to reveal the terminals inside. There is a diagram on the inside of the cover which explains the terminal positions. On the Turbo model, you need to remove the forward section of the engine cover to gain access to the number one spark plug wire.

I can see that as being possible. Hondas are usually due for timing belt replacement at 90k though - has this been done on your car? If it has, then it doesn't need to be done again for 90k miles from the mileage it was originally done at. If your car needs this service, it's the big one. A timing belt service usually is the timing belt, the t-belt tensioner, accessory belts, any tensioners for them, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, and all filters and fluids. That price may be somewhat on the high end, and I think you should comparison shop a few places to see where their pricing comes in, but I can believe that quote (the $920 quote, not the $1600 - that's ridiculous).
