It's been a long time coming, but I'm about to finally get my rusty roof removed and new roof ribs/rails installed on my Evo1.

I'll make sure I update my Member's rides.

Before hand, however I'm due for some servicing and not being super mechanically minded will get a mechanic to do it.

 

All the oils are probably overdue and I'm not sure a timing belt has never been done, so I'm assuming that needs to be a priority.

And there is at least one oil leak - which I think is coming from rocker cover gasket. 

 

The clutch would then be next on the agenda.  As I'm keeping the car stock, I think a stock replacement will be adequate.

 

While I'd like to fix the leaks, i realise it could be a money pit however my question is:

When I change the timing belt, is there anything I should get done at the same time?

It depends on how old the engine is and its condition.

 

IMHO if you are doing the timing belt then you may as well do the head gasket and head studs at the same time.

But other items:

 - new tensioner

 - pulleys (come with most timing belt kits)

 - balance shaft belt

 - water pump

 - auxiliary belts

 

You would also want to check the condition of your harmonic balancer

I saw you mentioned all the oils are likely overdue - just make sure the brake fluid is one of those things if it hasnt been changed in a few years :)
