Re: HELP: Can we use AC Delco parts?

I am asking this on behalf of a friend who owns a Honda mini van and he is about to change his timing belt and thought he might as well change the
water pump and other stuff accessible when they work on his vehicle. He wants to know if it was ok to use non Honda parts like AC Delco? Any contribution will be appreciated. Thank you Winston Tell your friend to Use "Genuine Honda parts" and have a "factory trained Honda technition" install not only the timing belt and water pump but tensioner as well followed by a good flush and fill & bleeding of system.
i cant understand why anyone would whant to use a 1 size fits all like AC delco parts yes they may be a few bucks cheaper to use but look at the drop back to using them i mean what if in 6 months time from now a timing belt brakes or a water pump leakes or a tensioner
starts getting noisy? well guess what that means you get in there and open up everything again to get in there when you could of avoided that the 1st time by using the right parts and not to mention the added expense the second time of having to repaire the problem unless your friend whants to have the headaches of seeing the repaire shop again in the near future tell him to use or better yet have it done at HONDA dealership with factory trained technitions on hand.
I have a saying i keep with me all the time and that is: "you either do it right the 1st time or you dont do it at all" ;)
