So did Fuzz Townshend (car SOS)

I would recommend a cambelt change every 5 years, regardless the milage.
The cambelt on our Ford motorhome was 6 years old and had done only about 15k km and all the teeth came off. Result a few bent push rods. But no damage to the valves.

The S & S V twin in the M3W engine is zero interference even with optional higher lift cams. Probably just as well given the spate of crank timing pinion bolts unscrewing with early batch.

I wonder how many modern car engines are though?

Spoke with Phil at Ledgerwood Morgan for a definitive view - it’s 5 years or 60k miles. Will book it in when the better weather comes (I know!!!)

a quote from the fordownersclub forum by a mechanic:

On the 1.4/1.6 Duratec (including the TI-VCT) Petrol engine the timing belt interval was changed by Ford from 100.000 Miles/10 Years to 100.000 Miles/8 Years.

The reason for this is that between 8 and 10 years many timing belts failed which resulted in major engine damage.
