Belt change 1.6 Alfa 147

I live in South West Wales and have recently aquired a 147 Turisimo with a recorded milage of 38000 miles.

On reading all the gloom and doom relating to timing belt failures at around this milage I decided to bite the bullet and invested in a timing belt kit aquired from Power alfa.

I had researched the subject for quite a while and proceeded to buy the neccessary tools i.e. Belt tensioner tool[Totaly Alfa on e-bay], cam locking blocks [Alfa Power], RIBE splined sockets [Laser Tools].
I carried out the change myself and found it suprisingly easy following the guide I found on the net compiled by Jaap Bouma.

The engine seems to be ok having covered approx 500 miles since the change
