I have just acquired my GTV and as I do with all my Alfas I would like to do a service just to have a fresh start.
The car has 104000 miles and I am planning to do to following:
Cambelts & tesioners
Rocker cover gasket
Can somebody answer this please..every time I look on this great site some poor sods cambelts snapped..is it just an Alfa thing or what...i havnt had my 147 ts long and I think its cambelts due bcos previous owner hadn't a clue when it was last done....with a house move coming shortly moneys a...
While changing my cam belt on the GT jtdm '06 I ordered what I thought was the correct belt 198 teeth only to find mine was 199 teeth.
Why and what is the reason for the change?
Just wondered why??
looking at doing the cambelts on my 1993 24v 164 anyone had any luck finding cambelt kits for the car, i haven't tried local autofactors yet but seeings as they struggled with brake pads thinking might not be very good source
anyone know any good parts places or have any tips for doing the...
Off to Classic Spa in May & my mates are all convinced it will be my Alfa (bought back end of last year) that will breakdown first - VERY keen to prove them all wrong!
The person i bought from replaced the cambelt themselves last March & gave me receipts for two pulleys, tensioner, belt and aux...
I am a retired Brit and came to Cape Town in Aug 2002 when I bought the new 147, colour Alfa Red. The clearcoat seems to be a big problem on this vintage. I had the roof resprayed about 2 years ago as bits were going creamy, now the bonnet is doing the same and the drivers mirror and rear...
After having my 147 for a week I went to CM Garage in Eastkilbride and got my Cambelt and Variator done as it was givin it the deisel noise on startup so peice of mind all round. The guys at the garage also gave the car a " health check " so usual stuff tyres , discs , not urgent but overall car...
HI, can anyone tell me or have knowledge of whether the cambelt for a 159 jtd engine is the same belt as the one used for a 2.4 jtd
thats what the garage have told me but im not too sure if they have their facts right?

Hi there, very new to the forum so hope this is going in the right section!
Just got our very first Alfa, which will be getting turned into a demo car for our car audio company (dalco car audio ), Bought with 50'000 on a '52' plate, full leather, air con and 4 brand new tyres for the sum of...
Hi all, its cambelt time for my 147 2.0ts on an 03.
I know most people are advising changing every belt, tensioner, idler and waterpump within 10 feet of the engine bay, but has anyone used none genuine parts to do the job?
I am a technician and often use none genuine parts on cars who's...
I needed to change the waterpump on my 2004 3.2L V6 GT, and I couldn't find a write up that made me confident of what might be required.
I've produced a merge of the various sources I found, and used it to do the job...
Right, I might be crap at searching, but i have tried searching for cambelts, camchains, service schedules, can't find anything!
Does the Mito use a cambelt or chain?
If it's a belt, any chance you guys know what the replacement schedule is?
Has anyone here had experience of changing the cambelt on Renaultsport Clio 182 or 172's?
My dad needs to get his done and if it isn't too complicated we will do it ourselves.
Do we need locks for the cams, and if so where do we get them.
Thanks in advance. :)
What is it with Alfa's and its tendency to bend people's valves? My machie in Cape Town, George La'Batte, had numerous 145's and 156's with bent valves...when asked why this happens so much, he simply replies "stupid owners!"
Now is this the owners fault or what? I know of a couple of people...
I've searched through the forums and threads and can find details of TS/JTS cambelts going at various high-ish miles and ages, but I haven't found a mention of them going when belt is over 3 years old, but hasn't done 30+k miles.
I just wondered if anyone could tell me otherwise, i.e.: what's...
Hi everyone its me again, continuation of my previous ramblings.
I have given this a little more thought and wish to express a piont that others may have experienced when setting up their engine timing belts.
When we reach to point where we have set locked our cams with the blocks, and removed...
