Miata MX5 Timing Belt - How to Fit & Align in Under a Minute. (Miata / MX5)
A quick guide to getting your timing belt alignment accurately, quickly and on the first go - without having to stress about clamping the belt onto cam gears and messing about with penning in white marks everywhere and without upsetting the cam(s) or cranks TDCness.
This procedure works on single and twin cam engines, and I have performed it successfully on several different vehicles with the same level of speed and accuracy.
On this demo, I was changing some leaky cam seals so the belt shown here isnt new. You can also see bits of degreaser dripping off the block/waterpump on some scenes.
This demo assumes sufficient mechanical knowledge on engine servicing and is only provided as a guide to specifically fit the belt without upsetting the cam / crank timing.
Episode 9- Reinstalling the Water Pump
In this episode, we start by comparing the options we have for choosing the Water Pump, then do some pre-assembly before mounting the Water Pump on the engine block. We finish up by reconnecting the radiator inlet hose.

Installing a CB with a Jeff Anderson splitter in an NC Miata
A small break from racing videos here - it's over 15 minutes so I need to post to this account.
I've read lots of info on how to install a cb in an NC Miata MX-5 but haven't seen any videos, so here's me installing one in mine.
I'm no pro at auto electronics, so please critique me if I've done something dumb or wrong. In particular I'm not 100% sure I should have run the power above the steering column - all the other wires in the car are run up there but my +12v wire crosses over the wires from the gas pedal, which concerns me a little for interference.
Initial test suggests it works - I picked up some chatter on channel 10, but I need to try again to see if I can transmit, too. Also I don't have a SWR meter so I don't know how tuned it is, but I'm planning on doing that when the next Mass Miata meetup happens.
