  1. 2.0 TS Balancer Shaft "Blind End" Leaks

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I like to address root causes when repairing, not symptoms. Are the blind end leaks, simply ageing of the rubber coating surrounding the steel plug, or is there typically a deeper reason for these caps to weep, like excessive endplay in a shaft? Any other "gotchas" for the replacement...
