I know that SKF produce quality bearings so if you can get hold of an SKF water pump you might be onto something. Saying that, changing the water pump/timing belt at the correct interval (60k Alfa recommended) is the real trick here, personally I'd change them every 50k just to be sure. As for the belts there's a lot of choice, Denso, Dayco, SKF etc, for peace of mind I'd just buy one from a specialist like Autolusso, AlfaWorkshop or Shop4Parts because they know what does and what doesn't cut the mustard. :thumbs:

I recently did the belts, pulleys and water pump in my 156 1.9 16v mjet and used Gates parts. I have used Gates parts for many years and many cars (mainly classic Yanks) and have always been pleased with the products. Some belts from other makers can feel very hard/plastic which i always try and avoid as they are a bugger to stretch and put on...lol!
