B172k (1.7) Cam Belt Technical Resource

Post by Chris_C » 08 Apr 2008 03:07 pm

Quoted from Mac's post... Theres often been confusion between the parts on early and late B172k's, this should clear that up.
'89(F) 340 GL F7R (ex B172k) - Fake -> SBKV 300 Runner Up 08, 12 - NASLR Time 15.7secs
'03 S60 D5 SE, '91 (J) MX5
Ex:

Afternoon all,

I'll try to clarify things a little.

Firstly whilst Volvo traditionally give chassis renges - Renault give engine no ranges. Basically there are two set ups for the B172/B18 (300 and 400) which I shall call Early and (guess what) Late. Parts are not interchangeable.

Early is fitted to engines up to no.51891 (340) and no.16529 (400) and has a 124 tooth timing belt.
Late is fitted to engines from no.51892 (340) and no.16530 (400) and has a 125 tooth timing belt..

Early

Volvo = Belt 3342103, Tensioner 3287776, Idler 3342143.
Pts f Volvo = Belt 903424, Tensioner not avail, Idler 903323,
GSF = Belt V13090, Tensioner not avail, Idler not avail,
Euro Parts = Belt 325660025, Tensioner 326660130, Idler 326660140,

Note, whilst GSF lists V13090 as the correct belt this is in fact the same 125 tooth belt as listed for later cars.

Late

Volvo = Belt 3343720, Tensioner 3343741, Idler 30855992,
Pts f Volvo = Belt 903425, Tensioner 903324, Idler 903325,
GSF = Belt V13090, Tensioner V13132, Idler V13134,
Euro Parts = Belt 325660035, Tensioner 326660060, Idler 326660050,


Oh! the engine no for the B172K is the one by the dipstick.

Hope this helps a little,

Mac.
