My mechanic who has some experience on alfas but its not an alfa garage says the shaft coming out of the gearbox is different on later types and when you look on ebay they are sold dated from 98-04.Thats why i asked if they can be easily adapted thank you for your reply.

156s and GTs use a different actuator and gearbox past around 2004 or so, the shaft that comes out of the box that the actuator bolts onto is a different size and shape and so the actuator is different to reflect that. You can't fit an early actuator but you can fit an early actuator and gearbox together, or use an early actuator to strip for parts to fix a later one, depending what is wrong with it. I'm not sure if this applies to 147s as I've only ever seen the later actuator on a 156 or GT in conjunction with the JTS engine.

Is your mechanic just a bloke you know from the pub, or does he specialise in Alfas?

If you need recommendations for local garages, then both Monza Sport in Ashington or Rusper Alfa in Rusper (near Horsham) both have good reputations.
