Cambelt change on Rover 420 Turbo diesel - Orson {P}
When should this be done? The car is an R 1998 420sdi and has so far done 70k. I bought it at 47k and have no idea whether it was done at any point before then as there was no real history. I'd heard somewhere that this particular one was good for 80k or so.

I'd be looking to change it soon anyway: it's simply a question of whether I have a bit of leeway, or whether it's a "do it now" job.

Cheers,

Having had 2 of these lumps, DO IT NOW - both of mine did 120k plus reliable miles and they were re mapped 130bhp+.
Its agood lump if treated well

It's good for 84000 miles or 7 years, whichever occurs first.

Nerv seen one fail, either.
