Timing Belt Change - Kit Or Belt Only?


Recommended Posts

OK, so now I'm the proud owner of 2 LS400s (doh); a Mk2 & a Mk3. The Mk2 last had a timing belt 80k miles/8 years ago, so I reckon I can put that one off another 2 years/20k, whichever is sooner.

The Mk3 however comes with no history, 120k miles, and no sign of a cambelt sticker; so I reckon I need to do that one.

Question is - should I buy just the belt (which I can get for around 30 quid), or a kit including the idler & tensioner for a smidge over £120?

Thanks chaps; you're probably right about the water pump Steve, although I'm tempted not to disturb that which seems to work OK...

At the moment, I'm not sure which car I'm going to keep & which will be the donor vehicle... there's a few things to sort out on the Mk3; but then there's a few niggles on the Mk2 as well.... choices choices....
