1800ti cambelt tracking

The correct tightness allows the belt to be twisted 90 degrees by hand. That's the rule I always use and have changed plenty of them.

The belt will not fall off, as it's kept in line by the bowl shaped washers/guides either side of the crank gear.

Corky's Scimitars

Heated screen fitted today. It’s a relief to get it off the garage floor and onto the car.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!
