Cambelt snappage.

If a cambelt snaps its going to bend the valves, what other internal damage could be caused to the engine if any?

Cheers

The valves will be bent and the guides will be damaged, the head will be scrap

You also my well have damaged the big end bearings

We can do a repair with the engine in in situ for 850 inc VAT, for that you get

Reconditioned head (Pressure tested, skimmed and valve re cut and new valve stem oil seals )
Tested set of con rods
Replace pistons if required (no extra cost)
Cam belt kit (Cam belt, tensioner and idler pulley) (original Alfa)
8 x Spark plugs
Head gasket set (original Alfa)
New big end bearings
Air filter
Oil and oil filter

We remove all the pistons and con rods and check for damage to the con rods and pistons (on the later 156 (black key cars) and 147 the engines are a CF3 and have weaker pistons than the earlier CF2 engines)

All this work in guaranteed for 12 months

Or you can go for a fully rebuilt engine with a 3 year guarantee, please see our web site for further details.

New valves certainly, new big end bearings recommended, new pistons possibly. Not sure why Ned is saying the head is scrap, in most cases it can be rebuilt.

Yeah, sorry Ned but thats a bit of a sweeping statement. The valves will be bent, the guides may be damaged but not usually. Head may need a skim, even a repair, but shouldn't be scrap.

Big end bearings should be changed as a matter of course after a belt failure.

so if iv got a spare engine that was run without oil, would i be able to source all the valves and possibly the head etc with a brand spanker gasket, bearings and all? would that be fine.

If it has been run without oil, the crank may well be damaged, or do you mean use the head from that one for the cam belt failure one?

I can imagine guides do get damaged but it's not a given. Also guides can be replaced. Anyway, as I have said before, buying a head or indeed a full engine from Autolusso is excellent value. My head recon has cost over 200, and thats without labour or a garantee. I would have no hesitation in recommending you lot
