Help, I've broken my engine

Thanks to the weather, I have a sick 2L engine after hydraulically locking while going through one of several flooded roads in Warwickshire on Thursday night.
It didn't help I was trying to get a customer to his hotel then drive the 50 miles home. Needless to say I didn't get home until Friday morning.

The engine turns over but has major tight spots so I am pretty sure I bent some rods.

Anyway, two questions. Anyone know good quality parts suppliers for TS parts such as rods, bearings etc. I'm going to rebuild the engine as I can't afford a Alfa recon and don't really trust other recon engines.

Also, can the TS engine be dropped rom the engine bay with the gearbox still in the car. Space on my drive is at a premium and I don't want to leave the car in the road.

Thanks for any replies.
Matt

Re: Help, I've broken my engine

Thanks Mike,

I've been through these sites and got prices on the usual cambelts etc. Just trying to price up the less normal parts such as mains and bigend bearings, conrods, piston rings etc.

I'll contact them to see if they do these parts.

Matt.

Nobody got any suggestions on where I can get rods, bearings etc from?

I'd really appreciate some help.

Re: Help, I've broken my engine

You could try AlfaShop or FPS was known as Ferrari's Piston Services

Your local dealer or motor factors (Partco, etc)?
