Early versions of the Zetec Black Top engines (1.8L and 2.0L) ran a three pulley set up on the Timing belt but from 1999 onwards (perhaps as a cost-saving exercise) Ford changed this to a two pulley set up. The advantage of the three pulley set up over the two is that the extra pulley ensures full belt engagement and reduces timing belt whip at High RPM.
Retroford have now developed a three pulley kit that can be fitted to all Zetec Black Top (1.8L and 2.0L, 99 onwards) and ST170 engines. There is a provision in the block for the third “anti whip” pulley to be fitted on all of these engines.
The kit comprises OE quality parts.
This kit can be upgraded to use the Gates Ultimate Racing Zetec Black Top / ST170 timing belt and WRC / Race Zetec Black Top / ST170 Timing Belt Tensioner Pulley, please select these using the drop-downs above.
Brand new Zetec Black Top / ST170 OE spec water pumps also available, please select above if you want to add this to the kit.
