Replacing timing belt in 28te flush deck

Post by Bobforz »

Is it posable to replace the timing belt on an Albin 28TE without pulling the motor.

Yes it is, have had mine done 3 times. Have your valves adjusted while you’re at it. I remove the engine hatch for the mechanic, and put it back when job is completed.

I have done mine while in the water. I am going to do my third belt this spring. Carl's advise is correct and that is what I do. The only thing I adding this time is doing preventive water pump replacement. I am 2,000 hours so assuming it should be done.

I do my own work on the mottor. So if you are going to do it yourself I could go into a couple of sugestions that I learned the first time I did mine.
