164 3.0L 24V cam belt

Hi, I am about to change cam belt on a 164 3.0L 24V engine, in the ref book it lists a belt but no tensioner available?. But for a 3.0L 24V GTV engine it lists a slightly longer belt and tensioner is available?. I assumed these engines were the same or is there a different tensioner on GTV requiring a longer belt and can i fit a GTV tensioner to my 164 + belt?.
Hope someone can help Mick.

I am pretty sure the cambelt also drives either the oil pump or the waterpump on the 164 24V engine, where as on the GTV they are driven seperately.

So I don't think changing the belt and tensioner for the GTV items will be an option.

Cambelt does drive the oil pump on a 164.

Tensioners are like the proverbial 'rocking horse doo doo', If you dont have any luck try Jason @ Alffissimo.
