156 Sportwagon

First Time Alfa Owner

Good Morning Everyone

I am pleased to say I am now the proud owner of a 156 Sportwagon that I picked up on Saturday in exchange for a Mondeo and really liking the car already even-though as yet it is not on the road due to the fact that I want to give it a clean bill of health before it becomes my daily runner.

I bought the car as a bit of a doer upper as while in Ok nick, it could do with some TLC both inside and out and I have over the years spent quite a bit of time bringing different cars back from the brink to good condition.

Hopefully doing the Cambelt, waterpump and variator this coming weekend, and I know this is a bit cheeky as I am new here but I don't suppose anyone has a Cam Lock and Variator removal tool I could borrow for a couple of days.

If there is any tips, tricks and things to look out for or things that should be done that would be great.

I'll get some pictures up soon.
