Hi guys , I can get pretty much anything alfa for pretty much every model , have plenty of great contacts that I have built up over the last 15 years or so ...
pm me or email absolutelyalfa at snap dot net dot nz ... brake disks and pads , cam belts tensioners etc etc , also parting out a few different models .

service and repair work is also a go ...

cheers Richard

Cam locks not totally necessary

Friend owns a shop specialising in Alfa/Fiat and would do 2-5 156 belts a week without the cam locking tool. Not sure how as I never have paid attention. Take care with non OEM waterpumps. If its got a plastic impeller DONT put it in. They crack and stop roatating on the shaft showing very strange problems, ie overheating but not loosing water

if anyone is into older alfas i may have just scored a whole lot of alfa original workshop manuals. Sprint, 33, 75, alfetta, spyder, 164, 164 super. Im keeping the 75 and alfetta stuff, everything else is up for grabs once i pick them up.

I have heard that to, i had an interesting experience with a non oem tensioner for a fiat brava, was stuffed from new. Oem is definately the way to go. I have the miss pleasure of doing a 24 valve 3ltr soon to, luckily its out of the car, lol i have heard of 147 with only 69,000km on them fully dismantalling them selves because the cam belt wasnt done at 60,000. That was a twin spark.

Avalanche325 you have a pm regarding tools.

Having now done the pump and belts on the 156 v6, you certainly could do it without the locks but they do make it easier, especially for checking that it's all OK after turning over a few times.

a bit of thread resurrection, but i figured i ll try my luck here first.
basically just bought 16V TS 155 which is overdue for cambelt and variator change - the car came with all the spares AND cam lock - except the tool is for 1.6L 16V TS.
it'd be good if anyone wants to swap with mine for whatever reason (perhaps they bought 145/6 etc) or willing to loan me 2L tool at some stage.
cheers
