Belts (What Else)


Model: 944S, Year:1987, Mileage:22014, Type of use:Street use only
My 1987 944S was purchased from the original owner. The car had 21,151 original miles on it and had been stored for the last 20 years in a climate controlled environment. All parts were original with the exception of a new battery and oil filters whenever the oil was changed. I've replaced all filters (oil, air and gas) the spark plugs and had my Porsche repair shop flush the cooling system and the brake system. I also asked them to check the cam/balance shaft belts and they said the belts were OK. Upon reading other owners questions and answers, it would seem my shop should have told me to replace the belts, given their age. Given this scenario, would you recommend replacing the water pump and what about the other various camshaft rollers? Also, what is the replacement schedule for the chain that connects the two camshafts together? Any guidance would be appreciated.
