I stumbled on this forum doing a web search after having the engine fail on my 2000 156 Selespeed. Unfortunately I know very little about engines, so maybe someone can give me a pointer or two.
The mechanic tells me that the crankshaft and crank bearings need to be replaced. The crankshaft was to damaged to be repaired. I live in Norway where everything is expensive, and buying a new crank costs about 1400£ Getting a used crank for an Alfa here in Norway doesn't seem to be easy. Do I have any other options than paying 1400£ for a new crank?
