The question now is - do you want to take the risk and pay the price if it breaks?

Change it!! there pennies in reality for a landcruiser belt & probably the easiest belt in the world to change

Belts deteriorate more with age than use id be happy to run past a mileage limit if it did the miles quick but not an age related limit

Not worth the heartache for less than 30 quid and less than an hours work
