Help Help Help in E Anglia
Hi All, I'm a newbie to the Alfa having just bought a 2001 156 TS 1.8. Couple of weeks ago my engine overheated I lost power and the RAC towed me home. The RAC engineer said it is the head gasket thats gone. I've bought a new one and head bolts, my mate was going to take it apart so I can send the head to get skimmed. Only problem no twincam setting/locking kit. Does anyone have one in the area I could borrow or hire? Or if anyone would be willing to do the job, I'm happy to pay. Spoke to a garage today about doing the work and they said that it could be more than just a head gasket due to the heads on Alfa's being porous and maybe needing a new head too.
Comments more than welcome!!
