Total MX-5 - - NEWS -

There’s noth­ing worse than start­ing an es­sen­tial piece of car main­te­nance and then dis­cov­er­ing you’ve not bought all the parts to fin­ish the job. These days the spe­cial­ist parts com­pa­nies are very good at putting to­gether com­plete pack­ages of bits to over­come this po­ten­tial an­noy­ance, as is the case with David Man­ners’ cam­belt kits for the mk1 and mk2 MX-5.

The kits com­prise the full works, in­clud­ing cam­belt, wa­ter pump, gas­kets and pul­leys. The kit for the mk1 is for the 1.6-litre en­gine only (camkit1 on the com­pany’s web­site, jags­, while the mk2 kit (camkit2) cov­ers both the 1.6 and 1.8. Priced at £57.60 for the mk1 and £50.40 for the mk2, the kits of­fer ev­ery en­cour­age­ment for you to try un­der­tak­ing the belt change your­self – and if you are go­ing to give it a go, re­mem­ber that we ran a ‘How To’ fea­ture on this very sub­ject in is­sue 3 of Total MX-5.
