I think that the mechanical ones have 98 teeth and the hydraulics have 100 but i will have to check it so probablt 1500 will be ok.


I have 1500 engine and spare 17oo with mech tappets waiting rebuild and if remember my mechanic told me that we can use cam-belts from my 1500 since they are new and recently changed..

I was about to reassemble the 1.7 engine and had thought I better have one last look and to my dismay found the 1.5 mechanical tappet cam lobes are too short to fully open the valves of a 1.7 head I think possibly my 1.5 cams are very worn though . Im now returning to hydraulic tappet boxes and cams until I find some lumpier cams.Anyone who's after two brand new 98 tooth belts PM me.
