Re: 166 Cam Belt Change
I was on approx 3-4 months ago re the cam belt snappiing after 20,000 miles, fitted at a so called specialist ALFA garage. They took no responsibility for it and told me to take the car home as he was too busy to look at it and it would cost about £1,000 for him to strip and rebuild, no luck. I have a FIAT 500 Gamine, noddy car, and took part in the 500 tour of europe to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 500 and the launch of the new 500 in Turin, 3000 miles with wheels coming off at 60mph and several drive shaft joints before arriving home. Anyway I now have time to repair the 166. The locks are in place No 1 cly at top dead, belt goes on tomorrow then check the comperssion to see if I have bent valves or holed pistons.
