Timing Belts

Post by steve » Sat Dec 15, 2018 9:59 pm

Just a reminder to everyone to not only change your timing belt but also while your doing that change the water pump and belt tensioners.

The belts are different on the P80/90 to the P93 so always count the number of teeth on the old belt and pump. The pumps have a different number of teeth on them as well. How do I know this well a few members have had problems when trying to replace the belt and pumps.

Don’t forget to also replace the injector pump belt as well

I would suggest that this is done when you first purchase a Pinzgauer and at the recommended time and mileage limits.

Hi Barry around 75000 miles or every 4/5 years I would always change the belts as soon as I get a vehicle seen too many snap over the years

Hello Steve,
What part of the country are you in for doing belts when I get myself organised and buy one?
Thanks
Barry

I am dealing with a siezed injection pump at the moment so got it off and taking it for a rebuild and as it’s stripped I will do all belts,pulleys and tensioners, my question is a two parter
First where is this cover you remove to see the tdc? And how do you get no1 on the correct stroke of tdc?

The TDC timing mark is located on the flywheel easy to see on the auto gearboxes lot harder on the manual transmission
