There is an independant in East Kilbride you could ask and I know a mechanic who is bound to have a set but I have lost contact with the guy (I think he's now in Irvine). Have you tried the Trade Directory at the top of the Home Page or the Classified Ads ?

camlocks available

I have a set of camlocks for a 1.6 147 but don't know if they fit the 156. The holes are countersuk so you can use the existing cam bolts. You can have them to keep for £20 plus post say £23 all in posted first class.

According to Alfaworkshop the camlocks are the same for a 1.6 147 and a 156, unless the 147 has a 76KW engine.

The camlocks for a 1.6 engine are indeed the same for a 147 and 156, but they are different from the ones needed for 1.8/2.0 engines.....EDIT - just re-checked the first post on this subject and I see the OP's car is a 1.6........AFAIK you don't need camlocks for a 16v diesel, as the timing on these is a totally different process - but I've never done one so I'm not certain.
