Spinning like a cat

Did the same a month ago, and asked the same question as you on the Swedish Alfa forum with a picture of the dismounted variator. A guy who is a professional Alfa mechanic replayed that this is the early type of variator, and it cannot be repaired. Instead I got a brand new of latest verion from Ebay.co.uk for £74 + shipping.
I will post a link to the picture as soon as the website it's up again.
There's an advantage with the repair kit: It can be fitted without removing the variator from the camshaft. You disassemble the variator still in place. That was my intention when I found out that I had the earlier, non-repairable version.
