Parts needed for timing belt job?

My 1995 Volvo 850 2.4l non turbo probably has never had the timing belt replaced, the car has now approx. 107,300 miles, first does anyone know at around what mileage the belt usually will break? Second what parts aside from the belt should I need to buy if any, links would be helpful.
Thanks.

I went to another local shop today, the guy said he will do the labor for $250, does this sound right?

Re: How to drain transmission fluid?

Ok thanks, I can see the crush washer in the pic above and mine does not have it. But I have not seen any transmission fluid leak. Is this washer sold in auto parts stores or do I have to get it online? And fluid wise I just bought "supertech" brand from walmart because it was cheap, is that ok?

Re: Timing belt replacement?

I asked the shop again, they said $325 includes the belt and all the necessary parts, but no water pump. Is this a good price?

Re: Timing belt replacement?

A local shop by me who specializes on Volvo's said $325 parts and labor to replace the timing belt, I just want to make sure I can find the best price.
