308 Cambelt Changes

How often do the cambelts on the original 308 really need to be changed ? The manual calls for 40,000 km but does not indicate a time frame. Is it safe to go 3 or 4 years ?

Hi Boxer,
on another chat site I recently came across a thread about a Mondial that finally wore out some cam belt teeth. The inference there is that one can go for alot longer between belt changes than the doctrine of every 3-4 yrs or even every 10-15,000 miles. I will try to locate the thread and PM you.
