Not Happy Help

Hi ,
I own a 52 plate 156 JTS and it has run the bottom end , due to cambelt failure, I have rebuilt the head new valves etc , but on start up , you guessed it brass band in the sump, removed the sump to find number two big end shells wrecked. My question is could someone plesae help me identify what shells i need, the alfa dealer says there six sizes and they should be colour coded , but I have searched every where on the shells, con rods etc to no avail, I have the numbers off the old shells, they are 073501434 , so if anyone can give ne the part number or even the size , I can get the alfa dealer moving , the car has been off the road for 3 mths now.

thanks Dougie
