Default Diy cambelt questions.

Hi all.

Going to be fitting a new cambelt kit to my 97 turbo 2000 soon. I've watched a few videos on fitting it and I'm keen to do it myself. My question is do I need to buy a cam locking tool to stop the left hand/NS cams spinning off the marks as I'm fitting the belt or is there a way of doing it without the locking tool ? Also it had the water pump replaced when it had the last belt fitted so around 3 years ago, have only covered about 6k miles since so I'm guessing the water pump won't need changing again this time ? I'm thinking I'll just change the belt, idlers and tensioner.

Thanks.

To be fair you dont need the locking tool. i found it easier without using one , it will become clearer once you do the job to what i mean

Thank you all so much for the response.
Yeah I didn't think the water pump would need swapping again. I think this is only the 2nd pump it's ever had so they must last a long time. The garage that used to look after the car was a very good family friend and he has retired now so that's why I'm giving it a go. Must admit I am nervous about it, but I'm determined to do it and I will 100% take my time and check it's all lined up right. Does anyone know the torque settings for doing up the idlers ?

When I've got it all on and tight, am I right in saying I pull the tensioner pin then turn the engine over a few rotations then check the marks are still lined up. If so then start it up ?

Anything else to look out for ?

Thanks again.

The pulley marks will all still line up ( should do ) but dont do what i did and expect the white lines on the belt to line up, only about 480 revolutions before they will again ha

39Nm for the M10 bolts holding the Idlers.
39Nm for the M10 bolt on the Tensioner ( single bolt tensioner type )
25Nm for the M8 bolt on the small idler if fitted.

Thanks merlin24

All with a touch of thread lock too I guess ?

As for doing up the crank pully afterwards, is their a specific setting for that too or just very tight ?
