Hello from Oslo, 155 Sport
Just signed up.
My name is Marius Sorteberg, 36 years old, live in Oslo with wife and two daughters. Bit by the Alfa-bug in -89 (GTV6), and never been cured. I lost the complete track of the Alfa's I have had, but I remember two GTV6, tree GTV 2.0 (transaxle), Sprint Veloce 1.5 (boxer), some Sud's, -59 2000 Spider, -77 Spider 1600 Junior.
Now I have a -75 Montreal, and a 155 2.0 16v Sport (widebody). The 155 was bought last Sunday with defect engine (bottom end), and a link from the Norwegian Alfa forum brought me here.
I'm not sure if a rebuild of the engine, or a complete swap of a newer engine will be best. The cylinderhead has gone thru some work, just before the bearing on cyl. no. 2 started to rotate on the crank. New inletcam, pushers, variator with bearing, belt, tensioner was replaced.
One option will be to buy a car for speares in UK and drive it home. It is very few widebodys in Norway, and mine is the only 2.0 (as far as I know).
I'll check the price for crank grinding this week.
