Cambelt Help


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I would like to replace the cambelt on my 1.6 pinto but when I went to pick one up from A-Z parts store they said I'd need to count the teeth on the belt.


Any help as to which belt I need would be appreciated.

Don't know if any of you saw Car SOS the other day, but Fuzz cuts the timing belt in half along its length, so leaving the other half in place to keep all the timing correct. Then slips the new belt on and then cuts the remaining half off. If you are sure you are going to replace the belt then the first half can be used to count the number of teeth.
