Default Original timing belt brand/markings

I have a couple of PTs to maintain. Their mileage suggests that they are overdue for timing belts, or previous owners may have already done them. Two are 05s, one is an 03. One the 05s, I see a Gates and Mopar symbol on the one but cannot make out part numbers. On another, I see Gates TX265, which appears to be an economy aftermarket. Anybody know what the factory brand or markings looked like? Thanks!!

First, welcome to the forum from the great sovereign state of Arkansas!



They don't all look this way. But here's one a member posted just the other day.

The above pic is from my '06 Touring Edition, and it is the replacement that the dealer installed.

TX245 I believe is a gates replacement number. So I believe that one is a replacement part.

Okay... Let's play again.

Here is MY 100% original OEM timing belt off my 2005 GT. Looks pretty well the same except for the font size.

Thanks all, so much! I checked my 03 GT and my 05 convert as well. Looks like the ones marked "do not crimp" and have the Mopar symbol, gates logo, and Mopar part number are the originals. Guess I have one out of three that has been done recently.... I suppose I will call that a win....
