    Wreckers X18XE - Genuine KM's?

    Hi guys, as per recent thread my engine blew up due to timing belt slipping. I have now purchased a second hand motor that supposedly has done 86000km, how can I know this is genuine, or at least close? Cost me $770.00 (X18XE).

    Thanks guys!

    Hi Bryce

    The only real way of knowing is the service history of the donor from which the engine was removed, or speaking to the cars previous owners , On another note there is a discussion regarding Littens tensioners on www.vauxhallownersnetwork.co.uk there is guy from New Zealand on there at the moment apparently Littens is a large Canadian company, go take a look mate (it's in the astra ,corsa ,zafira section)
