    Why change the pulleys out? If it worked for all these years then it should be fine to keep using. I haven't see many things you can change on them engines.

    i happened to change a snapped balancer belt (along with the cam belt of course) on a 4d56 fitted in a van of my relative few days ago. funny thing is that the engine vibrated like hell when the belts are replaced and i dont know why. all timing marks for all sprocket were right on the spot. as per the snapped balancer belt, it seems that it was broken months (or years) ago without my relative noticing it prior to his purchase of the van. i just adjusted the idle speed then with my "seat of the pants".

    The balancer bearings are shot and If you do not fix kiss the engine goodbye as you loose tons of oil pressure there.

    Yours is UP TO '93. Older than '93 parts will work.
