3.0 Powerstroke Timing Belt

I know the 3.0 PS is still fairly new and there probably isn’t anyone close (mileage wise) to needing to change the belt, but has anyone looked into the cost and work needed to change the belt?

There is a YouTube video of a 3.0 PS with the truck shell taken off and the guy shows that there are 2 belts, 1 on the front, and 1 on the back that would need to be changed. Is this accurate?

Yes there is one in the front for the cams, then one in the rear for the fuel pump. I'm not sure if the fuel pump belt needs to be changed as often as the main belt, but I would probably do both at the same time. There is a video of how to do it on the 3.0 land rovers which I've attached here - there's 3 parts to it.

Gonna watch this and hopefully it’s not as bad as I worry it is! I wanna keep my truck past 150k and so I’ll have to wrestle with this at some point!

The rear belt cover seems to just have 2 clips on top to get it off. I am betting the pros will remove the cab to do it right. Apparently it only takes 8 bolts to remove the cab, plus cables, steering and so on. I would love to see a video on someone doing both belts on our diesels.

If you did pull the cab it would be a good time to clean everything in sight.

dam that means, it could be 5-10 grand to do a timing belt job on these trucks. Gosh I hope not.
