Timing Belt - Half-Moon Tooth Style
HTD, half-moon style belt. NOTE: this later half-moon tooth style timing belt is only for 1986 onward Lotus cars (or Jensens that have been retro-fitted with the improved half moon style pulleys). The stock timing belts are square tooth.
The original square tooth belts are first quality, but the trapezodial design creates some fundemental wear issues that require frequent changing. The HTD, Half-moon style belts we sell are the improved, high temperature, long lasting premium neoprene impregnated timing belts. HTD belts are 80,000 miles belts, but I'd still change them at 40,000 miles on these engines.
