Just wandering if I should replace my Timing belt,
my 94 Supra TT has 84k kms, and looking at my belt, it looks fine, no cracks or wear, nothing, so should I bother changing it?? Do these belts just break or do they wear apart? Whats the reason for changing it? Id rather not go through all the trouble of removing my balancer and alternator if it's not neccesary.

Few things, the stock 2J is a non interference motor so if were to break you're not going to be damage your head. Having said that I'd personally change the TB due to the car's age, it is primarily made out of rubber. You don't have to remove your alternator to change your TB but obviously the harmonic balancer will need to be removed.

I was in the same situation with a Jspec in Canada being that is it 1995 or newer i would say do it. if its never been done that a 15 plus year old belt when your. when i had it off i decided why not add cam gears replace the serp. belt have some piece of mind going to the road with no problems (fyi did mine at 60,000 km belt still looks new just did it cause of age). i advise upgrading to Gates, works great with a little add strength and small added cost.
