Timing belt question

Recommended Posts

I'll get it done sharpish then, I'm surprised the previous (only) owner didn't have it done again as everything else was done with no expense spared.

Here's what was done on the last cam belt receipt

Yes as the others say get it done asap, also just to add it is worth replacing the water pump too as you'd have to do the job again if it leaks! Also make sure you get a good quality tensioner and don't scrimp on this part-last thing you want is cambelt jumping teeth.

best wishes with it, I have done lots of cambelts and Scooby ones are one of the easier to do if done properly.

Thanks guys, I'm in Cheshire, can anyone recommend anywhere close? Someone hAs already reccomended a Buxton based specialist.

I have a guy who does all with work on my other car, is it a simple enough job for him to complete?

I usually buy all the kit and then just get him to fit it so is there anywhere in particular I should go for it other than euro car parts? And whilst I'm there, what grade oil is the best?

I didn't go for the tensioner and pulleys because they had been changed on last belt change. Others will recommend doing them anyway. Ultimately the choice is yours [emoji4]
