Cam Belt Failure - who to use for rebuild.

Anybody out there with positive / negative experience from garages after top end rebuild (mine is a low speed cam belt failure on the 4th day of ownership...)
Done a search of the company and can't see anybody on the forum mentioning it. Maybe company names are blocked...
I feel confident and happy to let them have my car, but is there a list of use and don't use??

Hi,

We can do a top end rebuild on your car, here is our website for more information:

AutoLusso - Quality Alfa Romeo Servicing and Repairs

Sorry for the lack of V6-specific content, 9/10 of our rebuilds are TS or JTS but we are particularly good with V6 engines, we've just recently finished converting a 3.2 V6 into a 3.8!

Give us a call in the morning and we can go through in depth what we can offer you - also if your car is stuck somewhere we can pick you up - 01525 221 921.

freddie, there are more than enough people that will recommend autolusso for their work. in my opinion they are a class act, and well worth taking your car to.
best of luck with the rebuild mate.

Hi, no names are blocked, if they aren't mentioned on here and especially if they aren't a Alfa specialist i wouldn't take the risk, plenty of recommended garages on here all over the country

Clovertech in dagenham are who i'd recommend.

The job will cost you around £1800 including parts and labour I'd say at a guess.

I had set my heart on taking it to Alfa Workshop and had a very nice conversation with them. However cost of transporting the car was high and out of the blue I remembered seeing a red 156 Sportswagon with Auto Medics on the side parked locally. It turned out to be a local garage specialising in Alfa's (Alfa trained mechanics) and Italian and performance cars, as well as the normal cars. Had a great chat with them and they are now in the process of finishing off the top end rebuild and the cam belt job. Jus for the benefit of the others on the forum, it was my Auxiliary belt that snapped, got tangled in the cam belt and made it jump a few teeth... taking out some valves in the process. Check the auxiliary belt now fellow members and avoid this costly repair.


Anyway who would not put their car into a garage who’s business car has a 8C on it.....
