This past weekend my timing belt broke on my B18C5 engine...it sucks but that's life. Anyway, I was just curious, I counted a total of 22 teeth that were stripped from the belt. And they were all in a row. when we took off the belt, the stripped teeth were at the bottom.
What could have caused this? Water pump seizing? or just normal wear & tear..I've had this engine in my civic for ~3 yrs now..and I only drive it 5 months a year!
are you useing a stock replacement timeing belt ? if so mabee try to upgrade to a gates racing belt or a toda belt they are supposed to be much stronger then oem and replacements. but yes as said before they are made out of rubber but usually are supposed to last around 70k miles. but i have seen some go over 100 120k
