Just bought 1.2 80sx 16v Bravo on a T plate which has done just over 74'000. Looking to get a service and possible cam belt change. Do I just change the belt or is it wise to go with a kit and change pulleys etc. Seems a low mileage for the year. I'd be inclined just to go with a bely. Any thoughts??

You will need the cam locking tools for the belt change. I have some you can borrow

Ok, got that, I will just send one locking tool as you only need to lock the exhaust camshaft. You will also need 4 pieces of dowel rod about 10" long !/4" will do. And a straight edge to align the pistons in the middle of the bore.Will get it out today

Many thanks for that. On the top right of the rocker cover there's an inlet rubber pipe with metal end which slots into top of rocker. Doesn't appear to be a tight fit and is leaking a little oil as a result.
Any ideas how to keep it snug, was thinking of wrapping the metal hose end of it in a rubber glove finger.
