85 GTV6

Help New Member Hello

Hello everyone.

I'm based in Adelaide, Australia and I'm about to purchase an 85 GTV6 and would really appreciate some advice.
Firstly I would like to know if it is an expensive procedure to have the cambelts changed?
Also the car has the usual 2nd gear grind syndrome. Is this best fixed with a replacement gearbox out of an Alfa 75 or is it cheaper to just replace the syncro?
The cost of these repairs will influence the final price so any advice is greatly appreciated. (The garages are all closed over Christmas so I can't ask them.)

Thanks in advance

Chris.
