Anyone looking for X-reg 1.8 TS spares?
Just a heads up before I start the strip down process and stick parts up on the classified section and the 'bay.
I have just bought a fairly tatty but mechanically good jtd Sportwagon so the 2000 X-reg (silver) 1.8 Sportwagon Veloce will be broken for spares shortly. Its only done 49K miles!
I will be transferring the leather, door cards and side skirts to the jtd and will be keeping the tailgate as the one on jtd has a bit of a dent and the petrol filler flap. More or less anything else is available for sale. Its sitting on 15" 147 alloys as I sold the 147 with 156 wheels!
Engine had a broken cam belt so the head has been rebuilt with new exhaust valves and guides and a minimal skim to make sure it is straight. Never fitted to the car so I have the head and a full gasket set, set of new bolts plus a set of main bearing "big end" shells and a new Continental cambelt, tensioner and idler set available if anyone needs to do a head change. As well as the parts, I have a pair of cam locking tools that are now surplus to requirements (no more twinsparks in the "garage"). I will sort out a photo and stick this all together in the classified section as it could save another Alfa.
Should anyone need a complete engine I also have a complete spare 1.8 TS engine from a 1998 145 that had done 90K miles and was running fine when the car was scrapped.
If you think that you will need anything PM me and I will work out a price and give you an idea of when I will be able to remove the part.
