Changing cam belt

Just bought 1.2 80sx 16v Bravo on a T plate which has done just over 74'000. Looking to get a service and possible cam belt change. Do I just change the belt or is it wise to go with a kit and change pulleys etc. Seems a low mileage for the year. I'd be inclined just to go with a bely. Any thoughts??

Go for the job lot pal... rest assured then that the water pump and tensionors wont be failing.

You will need the cam locking tools for the belt change. I have some you can borrow

Ok, got that, I will just send one locking tool as you only need to lock the exhaust camshaft. You will also need 4 pieces of dowel rod about 10" long !/4" will do. And a straight edge to align the pistons in the middle of the bore.Will get it out today

Leaking oil from top of rocker

June 16 2011, 4:26 PM 

Many thanks for that. On the top right of the rocker cover there's an inlet rubber pipe with metal end which slots into top of rocker. Doesn't appear to be a tight fit and is leaking a little oil as a result.
Any ideas how to keep it snug, was thinking of wrapping the metal hose end of it in a rubber glove finger.

sounds like the oil breather, should be tight, I suggest taking the pipe off, clean it up and remove any oil from both surfaces then apply araldite and stick it back on, Let it set before putting the rubber pipe back on

If it's fixed in, Just try the araldite on the outside, Must be free of oil though and perfectly clean. I can't say i have ever had one come loose
