What is the tension value for Cambelt


Recommended Posts

14 Nm in the manual rings a bell, but Land Rover have since issued an instruction to reduce the torque on the tensioner to a lesser value of 11 Nm (from memory - I will have to check).

Reducing the belt tension improves the problem 300Tdi timing belts tracking off with the cr&ppy timing belt pulleys used in the 300Tdi.


Just verified 11 Nm torque for the tensioner. Found in Land Rover Technical Bulletin 0008, dated 25.03.98

Note: this is the torque for rotating the tensioner against the timing belt. The torque for tightening the lock bolt for the tensioner is 45 Nm.
