156 ts loud knocking
hi everyone, im now a alfa owner ,
got myself a alfa with 34k on the clock ,
thing is it makes a really loud knocking noise,
sounds like a exhaust leak / valves hitting a piston
ive had the cambelt cover off. to see the belts and the thing i notice is the balencer belt seams loose, but i dont really know how tight they should feel ,
i tug it and i hear a knock where the tensioner hits its stop. but it is close to this stop in the first place
the next i might say would be the veriator but i have no idea on how this works but other than these i am lost ,
its got compression 0f 12 13 14 14 so its down a touch on cylinder one for some reason .
when i did the compression check i didnt hear the noise but when it starts its loud .
