Timing Belt Change Schedule

1995 Toyota Camry V6 3.0L Wagon Auto Transmission 63,000 miles. How often should I replace timing belt for this car? Hanys manual says every 60K miles or 48 months whichever comes first. I have another 1990 Honda Accord and the manual recommend every 90K. I am wondering why Honda's recommend changes timing belt every 90K miles, but Toyota is every 60K? I'd like to change myself for the first time. Is it a do it yourself job? What is your opinion about changing balance belts and water pump at the same time? Any recommendation is appreciated!

It is recommended to replace the water pump at the same time for most cars because of the labor overlap. The water pump part costs little compared with the labor to replace it. It is a considered a wear item, and might as well do it "while you're there", to prevent paying the labor to tear into there all over again at some later date.
