Need to replace my timing belt for the second time. I did not replace the idler pulley / tensioner or water pump the first time. What have other readers experiences been?? Do I replace the pulley / tensioner and water pump this time?? Can't see keeping this vehicle much longer; maybe another 50,000 miles at best. Part of me says if it's not broken, don't fixit but I think I'd be pushing my luck.

This question usually comes about on the first timing belt change where the response is mixed (but usually your "if it aint broke, don't fix it" response). At 200,000 miles, though, I'd be inclined to replace them while everything is torn apart.
