The Time Has Come
As the title says, the time has come to have some major heart surgery on Bella. I've noticed over the past year that I am now collecting a puddle of oil sitting in between the V. No matter much how many times I've had the trumpets off & re-sealed, the puddle of oil return, not much, but returns. So I was up at Alfashop, having a general chit chat with the guys whilst buying spares for the GT & happened to mention this in a passing comment. "Oh that be your main oil feed to the cams, the seal has perished", was the reply.
So Bella is booked in the New Year, for both heads off, stripped, cleaned, skimmed & rebuilt with new valves stem seals etc. As I have had Bella now for 8/9 years, my first Alfa 😜, I thought it's time to get this done, as the engine has now done 142,000 miles. So here's to another 8/9 years of motoring 👍.
Now off to plan new projects.....
Merry Christmas & have a happy New Year.
