Keep going though fella..
You must "get there" soon.
My old 155 has been pretty much indestructible. I've serviced it myself when I could.. used a garage when I couldn't. The pile of parts that it's got through would be enough to almost build a new car..
but it's 18 years old and done 220,000 miles.
Engine is originale. Various semi-synthetic 10W40 every 12,000 miles led to a build up of gum and varnish, but the beast runs like... a Busso..
One new head gasket needed at 130,000 and the other one went at 188,000. Now fitted with Reinz (?) so should be okay forever.
Gearbox synchro' on 5th gear went at 135,000. Fitted a new clutch (#2) at the same time. #1 was still okay though.
Catalyser is originale. Flexi section is #2 ... (140k) .. Back box is now #4.
Lambda sensor.. 2 have died. #3 (a cheapo stop-gap from eBay) is lasting rather well.
One rear wheel bearing went at 140,000. The rest came out of Pomigliano.
One of the rear suspension arm bushes died at 160,000
Discs are the third set. Grooved Red Dot, lasting well with Freddie Ferodo DS2500s.
Fuel pump is #2. The rubber hose on the original split at 190,000 so pump #1 was actually okay with a new bit of hose.. but I already had the new pump so fitted it.
Fuel level sender and a fuel pipe - fitted at the same time as I couldn't easily separate them, though OE ones looked okay.
Rear calipers rebuilt at 210,000 (a bit weedy otherwise).
Rear handbrake cables at 160,000 (letting in water and freezing)
Water pump - Changed it at 188,000 miles when I did the head gasket... since it was otherwise out of Pomigliano and I bottled out how long it could still keep going..
Cam-belts - last 72,000 miles easy,. The tensioner is made of Indestructium since my mechanic got confused when he did the first HG and didn't change it... and so #2 did getting-on 2 Tours of Duty. 116,000 miles and more or less shagged out.. but still hanging in there .
Front dampers. OE by BOGE - 180,000 miles one gets a weep. Everything else (TRE's, ball joints, CVs, top mounts, springs etc. still the ones that came out of Pomigliano.
Front wishbone. Weedy OSF died at just 125,000 miles. The other one probably got changed when the car had a NS knock earlier in its life since otherwise it would have to be the original from Pomi'..
Windscreen - killed in action circa 85,000 miles. Replacement resisted several large hits, pock-marked like a lunar surface but hanging in there.
Radiatore - Number one made it to 130k, #2 was a re-core and only struggled to 178k before it was shot through (big enough to get a pencil through) at the bumper slot. #3 behind a mesh now, to protect it.
Headlamp.. NSF killed in action around 150k Second-hand replacement looking okay.
Foglamps... both killed in action around 180k.
Heater matrix valve - 220k and it started dripping into the footwell
Front brake pipes - 188,000.
Driver's front window regulator - 160,000m and secondhand replacement taken over.
Driver's door lock - 205,000 Just worn out (door key looks like a lolly stick!
Brake compensator - seized solid and not responding to ressucitation. 220,000 (or rather 17 years)
Now the rear suspension bushes need replacing and are unobtainable. The rear brake pipes are looking a bit shonky and the rear dampers (BOGE - from Pomigliano) are a bit tired.
The beast has consumed "the last one in the UK" of several parts (fuel pump, sender, brake pipes and fuel lines) and is currently SORN while I source new rear sub-frame bushes for MOT.
I'm persevering with it since it's managed to keep going for the last 18 years (I've owned it for 11) and it's a bit mean to quibble about a few pieces of unobtainable parts and probably a week dismantling the stuff to fit them. It's got a quarter million miles in it, easy..
