Hello All

What can I say, from Ireland and have a passion for all mechincal items, be that cars or bikes.

I have had 3 xAlfas to date 2x156 & 1x GT. Recently I put the first alfa 156 I bought back on the road, my father in law had been driving it and let the oil run low and destroyed hte big end bearings. I purchased a 2nd hand engine and installed did the usual timings and checks and all, touch wood, appers to be fine. Put it through the NCT here (MOT) and passed first time, so back driving it as ny daily car, always puts a smile on my face.

Few little issues: need to replace the alarm as the after market one thatwas installed way back in 1999 has gone faulty and the remote central locking is not working because but I will replace over the nt few months. The near side window motor is gone so it will also need to be repalced but it actually looks easier to repalce teh door then remove and install a new one. Outside of that all out buttons work and function as the should.

Anyway look forwad to some crack on the site Cheers Barry.
