i have workshop manual cam lock kit etc,was replacing after a failure so had to re time but otherwise yes.engine is still running fine after prob around 1000 miles.ive left the cover off so i can keep an eye on it,i ll have to re tension when i replace cover anyway as belt has to be removed to put rear cover on

did you replace the spring for the tensioner while you were in there?

by this time its probably a hard part to come by.

but should be replaced at the same time as the timing belt and tensioner
