156 V6 2.5 2000W Valve Damage 18/24
Hi Everyone I'm new to the forum and to owning an a Alfa.I have just purchased my first 156 which was going to the scrap yard as the timming belt had passed away and damaged 18 of its 24 valves along with 4 valve guides and what looks like 1 valve seat !
So I'm jumping in at the deep end with this project but on completion will have a car with spirit and feel which most modern production cars just dont have as standard.
The bottom end has very little damage,only the carbon seems to be chipped off the top of the piston! It seems free with very little play.
Both oil and coolant look clean and were changed as per the service record.(67K on the clock, original belt)
So the heads go in next week to a head shop to find out if the valve seat and guides are easy done and at how much £.
So I guess I need a shopping list of parts and suppliers and if anyone would like to share tips on obtaining/renting V6 camlock tools and or the procedures on the job or where to obtail a decent workshop cd
please feel free to pass it on and I will keep you all up dated on my adventure as it takes place.
Cheers for your help
