Cam belts are different between a cf2 and a cf3 1800 cc engine
You couldn't get anything else wrong in that post. The inlet is the same and the exhausts differ AND the belts are different (as is the head gasket, ecu, loom, coil packs and power output).
Thanks guys this is the confromation that I am after, So if I have got this right:
CF3 - 32205 - 166 tooth cam belt
CF2 - 32201 - 168 tooth cam belt **** This is the one I need ****
Althought the inlet is the same mine has fly by wire throttle so swap the mainifold. Outlet swap the maniflod. New mainifold gaskets require?
I also take it that I can reuse the coil packs from the CF3 engine?
Having loooked at the engine as I have started to take the old one apart I have decided to leave the gear box in, there will be two of us putting the replacement engine in so hopefull will not be to bad in joining the two bits back together.
@seymour beaver: thanks for the tip - paid £300 for mine with 51K on the clock, just hoping that it was not becuase it had spent most of its time in the garage.
Cheers for all the help so far, I am only doing by myself as I can not afford the notes for a garage to do it and I really want to get my alfa back on the road.
