You should replace all the plastic rollers and gears. I would recomend also replacing the metal ones to error on the side of caution. And while you are in there you should think about doing your water pump if it has not been done in a while. I did all 3 of those on my last rebuild, everything is still working well.

Is there a Pelican or other complete kit...or do I have to hunt down individual parts....I've seen so called kits on ebay...but they didn't seem to be much of a bargan.....Yeah...I definitely would do the water pump too.

thanks

You may be able to find the old style water pump as a rebuilt. The rebuilts are a shot in the dark as to wither you get one that will last. As you have an 84 and it's just possible that the water pump has never been replaced I would pay the extra for a new water pump and thermostat.

Replace the tension pulleys and the plastic idlers too. Having the smooth face idlers seize is no big deal. But having one of the two tension pulleys seize can be catastrophic.

Note that the new water pump will require that the back cover for the belts (engine side) be cut open in the center. This is for the metal "fence" that is to keep the timing belt from slapping itself.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

with a lot of waterpump update kits you get a drawing showing where to cut. It's pretty easy with a dremmel.

You also may want to think about your front oil seals. They are easy to replace once you are in there. Just remember to replace the sleeves at the same time or you will get a leak.
