Mk5 1.4 Cam/timing Belt Change, Advice Needed.

03 June 2014 - 07:06 PM

Hi all
I have a 2003 Fiesta with the 1.4 Duratec Engine and will soon be changing the Cam/timing belt and whilst I am awaiting delivery of some of the locking tools needed I have a couple of quick questions
1, I understand the best Timing Belt Kits are the ones sold under the name of Gates, is that correct and if yes anyone know the correct part number for their kit to fit my car.
2, I also understand that I will need a long bolt and nut to push the crank Pulley back on before it is bolted up to the correct torque with a new supplied bolt.
Anyone know the correct thread size and pitch of this bolt, I did read that it was a 12mm bolt but my local shop sells 12mm bolts in 0.5/0.75 & 1mm pitch threads, what do I need to get.
Thanks in advance with any help with this.
