Mooney Cambelt query

20 questions

I have 145 cloverleaf - when does the cambelt need doing? How long will it take a garage to do it and how much is the cambelt and where is the cheapest place to get one from?

Now!!! (Or 3 years/36,000 miles since it was last done).

How long will it take a garage to do it

4 hours or so

How much is the cambelt

20. But you need a balancer shaft belt too. And you must do your tensioners at the same time. You might want to do the variator too. See here : Click

and where is the cheapest place to get one from?

Re: Cambelt query

All the jobs mentioned above (way cheaper to do them all together) should set you back no more than 400 all in. It is a whole day job. Be aware that special tools are required to remove variator and to align the timing. Without these you can't do the job properly if at all. Find your local Alfa specialist and get to know them well and they will look after you, they tend to be run by enthusiasts rather than accountants or crooks.
