Joining the moterhomefun group is giving me work, as i thought i had finished the rebuild of Bessie but reading the old posts on here i will be changing my cambelt, after doing detective work to find out when last done, could only find a receipt for change in 2006 the man i bought it from said it had been changed a few years back, mmmmmm so lifted the plastic head cover and sure enough date written under it 2006 and 58000miles, its only done 6000 miles since done, but well over on time, never done a fiat cambelt done plenty of other makes, any one any tips as it look a bit tight down there and i have big hands.
Mare wark for Keith.

I don't know about the 2.5.I have the 2.8 with cambelt. If it needs one get it done and make sure that they change the pulleys as well.more often than not it's these that go first.

The good news is the 2.5 engine is easier to do the cambelt than the 2.8 it evolved in to. You don't even need to remove the engine mount on the 2.5. You will need the timing tools, cheap enough on ebay. When you do it make sure the new belt has the same number of teeth as the old one, there are two belt lengths with one tooth difference.

Thank you for that, i was looking at the closeness of the engine mounting, tight, looks like its next weekends project ,was hopeing to get away but at 12 years since done, I dont want to wreck the engine, a good friend has the pins/tools that fit a 2.8 he reccons same as the 2.5,

Yes the pins/tools are the same for both engines. Bottom pulley centre bolt is very tight, 300+Nm from memory.
