'56 GT 35k Service - CAM Belt ?

My car is a few weeks away from its 36k services, this will still be within the 3 year warrenty period (exp. Sept '09).

How much should I be expecting to pay a AR dealer?

Should the CAM Belt be changed in this services or do I need to be asking for it to get done?

Anything I should try a get via Warrenty as this will be its last services in its warrenty period?

Thanks for your respones in advance...

The official interval for a JTDm cambelts are 72k/5 years ... personally I'd get mine done ever 60k ....

i had mine done with the water pump and a major service when i bought the car recently just to be on the safe side i think it was under 500 all in

cam belt is not part of this service ,check you service book it tells you in it when things are to be done listening to things on here i wouldn't leave it till 75k

Re: '56 GT 35k Service - CAM Belt ?

Yes the official change interval for the JTDs is 72,000 miles or 5 years, whichever occurs first. The strong recommendation now is to get it changed at 60,000 miles/4 years at the very least, and get the waterpump done at the same time

When you get it serviced they will as a matter of course do a safety check on the GT, which includes suspension components. If you think anything is amiss with your GT point this out to them for further investigation. The 3rd year warranty is very good and they should replace any items found to be faulty.

Hope that helps.

Expect to pay way over what a decent indie will charge you
