My first Alfa experience

Hi from a 1st timer in Redditch.

We have our 1st Alfa in the form of a 147 and so far it is being a little pain.

First up I had to do the gearbox selector bushes (easy and common) and repair the actual gear stick, what a pain in the rear that is to get to with removing the exhaust etc.

Now I am doing the timing belt and variator and I find a tappet has seized and destroyed the inlet camshaft.

My 1st Alfa experience is not so far good and all I can say is she better drive as good as she looks LOL
