GTV Dropped Valve !

HI Everyone, Just bought my first Alfa, a GTV 2.0 TS 2001.on Tuesday 07/04/09. It has just dropped a valve on #3 cylinder today.Still I never thought Alfa ownership would be easy!
Thankfully I own my own Garage /MOT Centre so I will now require a detailed workshop manual to download. Can anyone help?

Hi and welcome to AO :wave:

The club does not have manuals to download per se, but there are links to off-forum manuals.

Re: GTV Dropped Valve !

Thanks for the kind words all of you. Even though I own my own Garage/MOT centre ,Im entrusting the work to local specialists "All Things Alfa" Stockton on Tees. They are going to supply and fit a Fully Reconditioned Engine by the end of the week.
I first went to buy a GTV in the 70s but shied away, after a thirty odd year wait I buy one that drops a Valve! Be aware that NGK spark plugs (the small one) are blamed for this. A very common fault say the specialists. Only use Bosch.
