3.2 engine problems

I have a 166 3.2 with problems. A camshaft sensor failure has morphed into a slipped cambelt and poor compression readings 3 x 150 2 x100 and 1x75. Am posting this on here (as well the 166 forum) on the off chance that a GTA owner may have had similar problems?

I can't help I'm afraid but point you to the GTA section rather than here...

Alfa GT 3.2

Sounds like bent valves then. Crap.

Heads off, new valves. I think a full set of valves is a couple of hundred, but I bet the gaskets will cost about the same on top.
