Introduce Yourself Again... No technical questions in here

I've been looking all over the 'net for a decent site to get technical help for my Alfa. I can't believe that I'm alone in being delighted one minute and frustrated the next by owning an Alfa, which runs as smooth as silk but sounds like a diesel, despite being a 1.6l petrol! I'm reliably informed that the cam followers are to blame. How big a job is it to replace them? I'm due to replace the timing belt anyway, as I'm approaching 72K miles and would appreciate some 'how to' help on both subjects. I'm not behind the door technically, and have some expert help to call upon, but Alfas appear to be put together in some mystical way that other cars just aren't, and so any tips and tricks will be gratefully accepted!
