Title: Calibra Cambelts
Post by: Martin. on May 08, 2012, 10:59:31 AM
Thought I'd scan and post pics of all the belts I have in my book for the Calibra as I keep doing it for individual threads but it would be better if they where all in one place and then we can just post link to page.

Also has workshop repair times  ;) as I've read others feeling there having the wool pulled over there eyes

Note there are 2 other V6 procedures in the book (one says 'with raised outer edge on tensioner pulley' and other without! ? (and then the one I have posted ! I don't know why! they 'seem to be the same' If you want them I will post them up!

The book also has every other belt from all makes of cars from A-Z (not just vaux) so if you want any others let me know and I'll post them for you!!

There are two cambelt kits for the V6, One with raised lips on the pulleys that the belt sits in and one without.

Well I cant see the pictures you posted as im in work.

There are two types of Cambelt kits iirc. The pulleys are different, ones plane rollers and ones rollers with lips, mines a early engine and its using the ones with lips. One early one and one late one. Not sure why your book shows 3 procedures tho. Probs something someone like Geff can tell you.

When I spoke to Autovaux about cambelt kits last year they said the bracket the middle pulley bolts to also differs but I'm not sure how.

I had to take a photo of mine and send it to them, as my block has no engine number.

*rage* How the hell are you supposed to get the belt on? Even with the tensioner as slack as it goes, it's too tight! Grrr!
Title: Re: Calibra Cambelts
Post by: Jckf on June 09, 2012, 16:44:15 PM
Never mind. I got it :D Moved the tensioner pulley around so the little notch popped out of its seat. That made enough slack that I could get the belt on. Then I held the cam pulleys on their timing marks with a spanner while moving the tensioner pulley back into the notch. Tightened it up, and rotated the crank twice. Marks are still spot on! Thanks, Martin!

id say if you went to euro car parts, gave them your reg and they gave you those parts, then yes they are right, personally ive never heard of circoli, using a cheap part is unadviseable

but it should fit and work fine, ive never had a problem with them, GSF...different story

personally id get a BOSCH water pump, as im sure they left the factory with these anyway????

as for the cambelt kit, pass, again using cheap parts is unadviseable, does it come with tensions and rollers? no point just doing the belt as its normally the tensioner or roller that gives, rather than the belt snapping

Meaning?? You need it?? Or you want me to spend time scanning, uploading and posting pics of a set up which not many people have!

I did state. I can up load one on request!
Is this a request?
