to answer a few of your questions

1 if i remember right the streetka has the 1.6 endura 8v engine which is chain driven
2 any good quality 5-30 oil will be ok
3 there are plenty of online parts providers for ford like fordparts uk
4 its best to do the roof with a two part system,one to clean and one to protect,companies like autoglym sell this
hope this helps

Hi and welcome to the club

If you look in the service book it should give you a mileage and year for the cambelt/chain change. If mintalkin is right about the chain driven engine then i know this normally last longer than a belt but i believe it is more expensive.

Oil as mintalkin says any good 5-30 will do.

What kind of parts are you after?

There are quite alot of soft top cleaners out there for you to choose from but having never owned one i cant say which is the best i'm afraid.
