Re: First Alfa - 164 Cloverleaf 24v
You aren't going to like this...
Here's what I bought from EB spares last August:
Timing belt: 28.00
Tensioner : 104.00
Tensioner bearing: 55.00
2 Idler bearings: 58.00
Head gasket set (no includingthe head gaskets themselves): £50.00
Water pump: 62.00 (one on eBay at the moment)
I need not have bought the hydraulic tensioner at 104.00 - they rarely go wrong.
Add to all this:
1. Anything you buy for the serpentine belt/tensioning system (belt, 2 idlers, tensioner bearing) - just as pricey esp the idlers.
2. Thermostat housing gasket(s) - you might need the upper and lower depending on how easily the odd size bolts come out - mine were a complete pain. Add three special M7 bolts/washers.
3. If you have the water pump done, also consider the two short hoses and clips that go to the cylinder heads. Rusper will know what you mean.
Conclusion: I've paid this much in parts but I've done all the work but had to get hold of the special tools too and most people won't be able to. Let Rusper do it!
HTH although perhaps not hat much, sorry.
