Bummer ! Best order those tomorrow then so I can have a crack at it at the weekend. I supose whilst I am going to that extent I may as well fit a new cambelt, tensioner, waterpump, etc.
Yeap, you could do the thermostat as well. Never rains when it pours. This is how I started. While its in bits I took the plunge and thought I'd do everything I could to make sure it would be right when it when back on the road. Did not help that it took 4 month for Alfa to supply a oil pump.
So far items bought, oil pump, cam belt kit, auxillary belt, auxillary tensioner, exhaust cam, cam rocker, rocker gasket, oil level sensor, thermostat, inlet 'o' ring, timing tools, another cam belt, new flywheel, clutch, sub frame bolts, air filter, oil filter, plus fluids twice then the fun bits ,groved & dimpled discs and pads all round, HID lights x2, LED side light, satnav update, two more tyres and costing up DPF & EGR delete and another remap.
Plus all the cleanig products I ever knew existed, clay, microfiber cloths etc.
Got to love your Bella
