Default Timing belt

Does the oem belt have markings on it ? If so what are they? We have 72,000 miles on our 03 the lady that owned it had it serviced regularly and what not but couldn't remember if the belt was Done, I bought it with 49,000 miles but it was 11 years old.
What do you guys think?

OEM replacement belts have the same markings as yours. But looking at the condition of yours, probably the original.

You can't tell by looks, you really can't see cracks unless you fold the belt on itself...also you can't see the teeth on the other side.
One of the pics you removed showed the belt was starting to fray & that black oily looking stuff looks like melted rubber....so you might have a problem.

There was no melted rubber or fraying that I saw.

That was grime I used a gasket scraper to pry back on the cover to get the picture because the scraper is very thin. It looks terrible though In the picture but the crud was hardly anything lol.

Run a history at the dealer she used for service. But would doubt this has been done.

How do you guys feel about ac Delco tb kits or airtex tb kits?
Being that it only has 72,000 should I replace everything in there including water pump or should I wait to do it all and just do the belt now or belt and tensioner and idler and leave water pump? What do you guys think?
