    Hi, I have a 3.0L V6 24V lying unused in the corner of the garage sulking. I've been thinking of a project for it and was wondering if it would fit into a Brera. Or is just too much hassle to contemplate! Cheers! Mark

    I changed my left outer cv joint the other day due to a perished boot and a bit of clicking. While undoing the inner cv I noticed a fair bit of play, say 4mm, in the diff bearings. It's not making any noise. How big a job is it to replace the bearings and seals on a diff? Mark

    Hi all, thread title says it all. Does the 3l 12V Busso as fitted to an '88 164 use hydraulic valve lifters? I've asked around and people can't seem to agree on an answer, so I thought I'd ask you... Many Thanks
