Default Regarding timing belts and service manuals

I have-a-new to me Cruiser with 104K miles which means I'll be needing a new timing belt soon. I'll put the whole kit in of course, but want to make sure I put in the best belt I can find within reason. Are Dodge parts superior to after-market? Is there such a thing as "best", or are all basically the same? Cost is a consideration.

And speaking of "best," Is there a best place to buy a downloadable pdf service manual? For that matter, is it legal/ethical to purchase one like that? I'd like to have a regular paper one but they are hard to find.

Thanks.

It's a 2002. And I found a downloadable service manual. All I had to do was scroll up to the top of the Tech & Performance Forum and there it was.

Thanks for you response.

Thanks for this, and apologies for the late reply.

I've found many great threads, several of them yours, including your harmonic balancer thread. I'm going through as much of this forum as I can and working on a list of parts and brands to purchase.

I worked for a while in paint and body back in 71-72 and appreciate the work you have done in your Broken PT thread. Really excellent work!

Thanks again.

Thanks for the kind words. Hope you found the help you need. Feel free to ask whatever you need. I studied up to before I did mine.
