The Busso V6.

Hi guys..I have a 1996 Alfa 164 24v Cloverleaf, which has been dry stored now for four plus years.
It is pretty much in mint condition, some of you on here may have seen it at various meets.
However on starting it up recently, it has now got what I fear is an oil starvation rubble from the lower end .. I think?
My question is Who or Where .. would anyone recommend as a busso specialist to take it to.

why should it have oil starvation issues if just stood idle ..

anyway there are a few recommended garages .. not sure how local they are though

but autolusso 2 branches alfaworkshop and proalfa seem to have great reviews and loads of busso experience

Thanks guys...
I think one of the crankshaft bearings has picked up when being turned over.
I have read some where that if it is being left for quite a time.... as mine has! ... that it would be good practice to fill with oil so as to submerge the crank.
Then drain the lot out and refill to the correct level.
But alas too late now.
