Going via the dealer parts dept.... you are obviously assuming that they know what they are looking at.
I have a friend that runs an independent Alfa garage, they ordered a full set of hydraulic tappets for a 156TS that had the cambelt brake (quoted chassis number etc), what arrived was a single valve stem oil seal!!
Now remember that this was for an urgent job.
The response from the Alfa parts dept was "we weren’t sure what part you wanted so we just got one of these for you to check"!!!
