Hi folks,

Can't believe what I've done now... Just gone and bought another project car..

146 Ti

Dead engine, belt jumped a couple of teeth, reckoning on a replacement head being cheaper/less hassle than sorting the one on the car, according to the EPC the 1.8 and 2.0 cylinder heads are the same, both have product codes 5895154, has anyone tried this and can confirm they are interchangeable?

Regards,

On the 8v engines they are the same. Only difference is the pistons and bores. I'd imagine the 16v to be the same.

888dee, your best bet is asking the tec lot over on the 145 forum. AJ or pimp would be the men to ask, although there are many others who'll offer help.

nice car you got btw

I've been offered a complete 2.0 head, is £200 about right?
When the belt slipped on my 2 litre (My Fault) the replacement reconditioned head cost me £440, so if all the head needs is checking to make sure it's flat I'd buy it. :rolleyes:

I saw a twin speark head the other day at an Alfa specialist that had broken a belt and there were only 2 valves that needed replacing, you might find it cheaper to take the head off and have a look at what needs doing first ?

I am in exactly the same boat with my 145 and am hoping for something similar and easily fixed (fingers and toes crossed)

I can confirm that Dee has indeed rebuilt a good few TS engines since then.....including his rather special 2.0 / 1.8 engine for his 155 - and the engine in the 156 Sportwagon I'm running now.....

He's Dundee's resident Alfa engine specialist:)
