Help with cam cover needed.
Hello all, this is my first post, working on my first Alfa.
I have recently bought a 156 2.0TS and have been told that the cambelt was changed 'recently'. There are no receipts for parts or service however, and so I must assume that it has not been done.
I am changing all belts (tensioners, pulleys) myself, but am having alot of difficulty with the cam cover. All hoses, coil packs are removed, and all bolts are loose, but it shows no sign of movement. I have built diesel engines in the past, and have only ever used a gasket/rubber seal, never a permenant sealant. Is it stuck tight with something.
I don't want to start applying force if force ain't gonna do it.
I feel a bit of a wally posting this, as it shouldn't be a difficult task.
