I am pretty sure they are more prone to cambelt issues than the later 24V unit fitted to GTV's, 166's etc so the change interval is shorter.

This is because the waterpump is driven by the cambelt itself, not the auxillary belt as on later engines.

Other than that they are pretty strong as far as I know.
