Re: Alfa 33 1.7 8V engine mod
problematic areas which I mentioned above :
1 - when John started his car the past 4 or 5 months, we could hear something hitting the body of the car. At first we thought it was the exhaust hitting while the engine was starting.
Now we found out that the top mount of the engine to the car is damaged. The bush came out of the mount , forcing the engine to move to one side. - See first 2 pictures.
I'll try changing that without removing the engine again, but if its not easy maybe we'll take out the engine anyway.
2 - I havent changed timing belts on the 1.7 8v before.
On the flywheel there are 2 marks. 1 is an arrow and the otherone is the letter "T" ( should be T for Top )
The cams have a cut, which I painted white in the third and forth picture.
Are those cuts supposed to look on the top of the metal housing where there's a hole ?
Any advise would be helpful about this issue
