Timing Belt

Question : MY five-year-old LN-166 (3-litre engine, 2.8-litre without turbo) has clocked 45,900km.

Is it time for me to change the timing belt ? Is it possible to change the system with timing drive ?

Answer : I think it is rather early to be replacing the timing belt as normally it would be replaced from about 80,000km onwards.

However, if you have been doing much offroading with a lot of time spent in lower gears and running at high engine revs, you may want to take a look at the condition of the belt.

If the teeth look worn or there are cracks, then it will be wiser to replace it.

Changing to a chain drive is not something that can be done just by replacing parts as it also involves lubrication, tensioners, etc.

I would advise sticking to what you have got.
