156 24v V6

Crazed i'm gonna give it a go!

Hi folks, right, the time has come, the moneys in my pocket and i've priced up the parts, thing is, just how much of a job is it to change the cambelt , tensioners, water pump, etc etc on my 2.5 V6. are we talking about time off work? to allow for all the other things i might break off . i've got the experience in changing belts on other cars but never an alfa, and my mates garage aren't really interested.
have any of you brave lads succeded in said job, and lived to tell the tale.
or shall i just go down the pub yet again , and spend it.

if i could just sort out the paint and the wheels my life would be complete......oh and a supercharger. yeaaaa!

Re: i'm gonna give it a go!

Even if you've done belts on other cars, the Alfa V6 is not one to blindly leap into, the tools and locks are specific to do the job right, it's not an M10 bolt to lock the crank and then just whip off the belt and throw on a new one Frenchy style, this is major surgery and one tooth out and your taking the heads off.

On my 155 V6 the water pump was a hell of a job to replace without taking out the engine. I think it's just as tight on the 156. Anyone got first hand experience?
