Its a good time to replace any leaking oil seals. Be ready to run to napa and pick up cam and crank seals if you get in there and find oil.

You'll need a feeler gauge and a belt tension gauge to set and test the tension of the timing belt. You'll also need the tension gauge to set the power steering, alternator and A/C belts.

It's also a good time to flush out the coolant system with a garden hose and maybe even convert the clutch fan to electric. I used this kit and am really happy with the results.

Other than that, stay organized, label everything, make sure not to let the engine get out of time while swapping belts, pay attention to the marks on the new timing belt.
