DIY Cambelt on GTV v6
I recently got a Alfa GTV v6. It had it's head rebuilt after the cambelt went (just under 70,000 miles). Now its been on this belt for only about 8,000 miles, but it was replaced just over 4 years ago. I'm slightly paranoid that the belt could be due for renewal (5 years is in my head for some reason).
I've done cambelts on an old Pug 106, and Golf so I'm not that scared about doing the job myself (although having looked through the Alfa service manual its clearly a much bigger job).
Does it need replacing, along with the tensioner?
Does the idler need replacing?
Shall I replace the ancillary belt, tensioner, small idler and large idler?
Is it worth replacing anything else while I'm down there?
I've been totting up the part costs and they add up very fast.
Also what tools will I need?
So far on the list is..
Alfa Exhaust Cam Pulley Tool
Alfa Romeo V6 Cambelt Tensioner Adjustment Tool
Alfa Romeo V6 Hydraulic Cam belt Tensioner Locking Pin
