Hi everyone

I'm a new member here although I've been lurking around as a guest for a while learning lots from your threads. I've just bought my first Alfa - a GTV TS in lovely condition but I picked it up cheap because of a small problem to do with a con-rod hanging out through the sump!!! Previous owner had a recon head fitted 2500 miles ago (at a very considerable cost) due to a snapped cam belt. I'm presuming (from what I've read on here) that one of the pistons hit the valves and damaged the big end bearing at that time. It's with Italautos at the moment having a re manufactured engine fitted. I've got my fingers and toes crossed at the moment hoping everything will turn out ok!!!!! Talked with Tony today and I'm hoping to have it back on Saturday (very optimistic) or early next week. I've previously said that I would never touch an Alfa and I love my japanese stuff - but there is just something about the noise and the beauty of an Alfa. It's time to take out RAC cover again!!!
