They are inexpensive to buy. Repco or similar for under $50

Seen one on eBay for $19.

Also thinking of taking a 'fan' or drive belt(s) are there one or 2 on the 4B12?
And whats the ball park cost?

I don't plan on replacing it on the road side but I figure if I have it and the worst happens I'll have a replacement instead of waiting for one to arrive. Some say you should also take hoses but really I've done this before and kept them for years while they slowly deteriorate.

Just one serpentine belt. They cost around $60 for a good quality Gates brand and about 30 mins to fit.

30 min to fit, I miss the older engines where it took about 5 minutes, unscrew on bolt and replace then tension it up again.

But this is just added insurance where a mechanic can do it, I probably could if I was shown how and I guess I could just have them use it at the service when its due for a change?
