It took 13 hours (in total) and I can hardly move my arms, but the job is complete.  I:
  • Changed the passenger side tie rod end.
  • Changed the water pump.
  • Replaced the timing belt.
  • Replaced the thermostat.
  • Did a poor-man's alignment.  ("The wheels look straight now.")

That doesn't look like a lot, but the entire front (belt side) of the engine must be disassembled to do it, including removing entirely an engine mount.  And, putting it back together.

As in many things, it's all about leverage.
