Re: broken cambelt
Yeah, its a sad situation....with an engine rebuild being about £400 - £600 even at DIY rates, a blown engine will realistically write off many a previously good car, particularly with current scrap prices.....
BTW if you do scrap the car, its well worth an hour or two to remove the sump...they are in demand for all TS 16v Alfas, and worth a minimum £50......and of course the cat is worth £40+....and none of it will significantly affect the price you get weighing it in.....£150/tonne, here, currently......
