156 JTS Scrap engine, Can I Rebuild with TS Bottom end?
I recently acquired my third Alfa as a non runner project, 156 53 2.0 JTS.
I assumed the cam belt had failed and i may have to repair the head, unfortunately it seems a piston has broken up and been ground into the rest of the engine, beating up the valves and cracking the block in the process.
I now need to rebuild the bottom end and head.
It would be great if i can use a Twin spark bottom end, i was told they are the same but in another thread it states there are differences, can anyone shed more light on this?
Will the pistons hit the injectors if i use the entire TS bottom end? I suppose the answer is probably yes, if i got the same dent machined into the TS pistons would that be ok?
Is the crank sensor ring etc the same?
Any input would be greatly appreciated, let me know if you have any parts i could use.
