Default Timing Belt Continental 490H100

I noticed that RockAuto and now some Ebay sellers are listing the Continental 490H100 as a replacement timing belt for the OHC motors.

Specs seem to be basically the same as the old TB11.

One of the ebay sellers mentions the belt is a tiny bit narrower in width, but a little thicker than others.

Does anyone have any real world experience using one of these?

This is a link to the specs.

Can't speak on that belt, but the specs are good.

This belt I have and it is near perfect;

Actually that was the ebay seller that made the comments on size being slightly off.

I guess there are a few sources now. That one has the Screaming Chicken emblem, so it must be good!

Have one on the way.

Curious to see how it looks next to OEM.

I received 2 and they look pretty much identical to the OEM belt.

Thumbs up

If they're constructed anything like the OE Uniroyal belt it will outlast the engine.
