Belts...

So - Been looking - was very interested in Clive's but it appears to have sold elsewhere.

The other one I'm interested in is very nice but had belts done 10 yr ago. Now I've set my stall out often and wouldn't likely get them done as the cost I find a bit prohibitive to be honest - but I wouldn't avoid it if I thought about keeping it or they hadn't been done at all - but that view has just been reinforced.

£945 quoted by my local garage for belts, water pump and thermostat.

That is half of what the car is up for ....

Cheers fellas -

Yep - saw that Pete - bit better. I've sent a message to see what the cost would be because I'm sure they would add something for coming to me.

Big increase since I had him do mine 7+ years ago. Iíll be doing it myself along with the cam swap when I get to that part of the project.
