Where do you guys get your timing belts and water pumps from? Seem to be loads out there and wondered what you guys recommend?

Yeah I was a little shocked at the water pump being obsolete. There must be a fair few cars that use them on the road still. I assume a lot must be using cheap pattern stuff instead of genuine however. Suppose it means I might as well bin the few spares I had for exchange purposes out of the garage now.
