I'm a fairly new oldwing owner too. I did my belts this past spring...it's not hard...read up on it first. A few suggestions...it's easier if you remove the radiator, so, that's a good time to replace the rad hoses....while the coolant is drained it's a good time to replace the thermostat. Allot yourself enough time to get in there and look everything over and tidy up a bit....and be sure to order the correct belts! (not ones for a 1200 like I did!) :lol:

There isn't a DIY here on the 1000 or 1100 Octane has a good one over at the NGW, I can help you if you wish,,,, I use the Beavers lock it down system,,,, I set everything so the cam pulleys are on their marks TDC... T-1 on its mark and UP on both pulleys then I lock them down...Ref. to Admins. valve adjustment at link below to set the TDC.. (Note) Place new belts into clamp before clamping it down..
I used a 19mm socket to lock it down and a small vise clamp, you can probably use a c-clamp but you have to remove the valve covers... Once both sides are locked down and all is secure paint a reference mark on the engines case and on the crankshaft so you know where it is in case it does move, it shouldn't move doing it this way( white paint)...The video I will show next is self explanatory....You really can't screw up doing it this way and this won't hurt your pulleys at all as it's just holding it in place, now you have a 82 and the holes are a triangle shape, just find a socket to fit it... In this video I painted the reference marks for the crank at 4 oclock but many put it at 12 oclock doesn't matter as long as you paint it on there, ignore that pencil mark on the crank washer..Ok if you look real hard you can see my white tiny paint marks I have a black marker line going to it, gotta look hard at 4 oclock LOL
...

See nothing moves from the original spot this way,,, simple...If you have any questions just ask... :D You asked for a link, here you go if you don't wish to do it this way... :lol: http://www.ngwclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3544 :lol: I used to work as a Carpenter on buildings and such we used these clamps alot for metal studs,, that's how I dreamed this system up...I have not seen a easier way yet..I have also done this with the radiator in place...Just as easy...well the bolts are harder to get to lol...probably easier the first time to remove it..Oh and while you have the valve covers off it's a good time to adjust the valves here's the link DIY viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2229

It might be a good idea to also remove the tensioners and inspect them by spinning ect. replace or repair ....viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10919
