Re: Renault Manufacture date

Sounds like you are doing the work yourself?
Remove the belt and count the teeth before you order?
If you can't spare the down time, mark somewhere and rotate the engine a bit at a time, and using a different colour to the start mark, go say 20 teeth and mark again until you do the whole belt. That way, you'll narrow it down to a specific number of teeth?
Have the belts Gates have given you got different tooth profiles? I remember now, the R20/Fuego engine had 2 profiles of teeth.
If it's too late for changes, best of luck old chap.
