Default timing belt change.

Just for informational purposes in case any one needs a refereence point.

my 2000 accord lx 3 litre v6, timing belt, ac pulley belt, alternator belt and water pump just changed out at 117k.
all original belts were in pretty good shape and i beleive could have had some more miles under their belts, pun intended, i live in the us notheast so seasonal conditions applied.

total cost 719 bucks 395 of it in labour..
