Had to replace my poped clutch slave cylinder this "evening" (Where's the light gone) While underneth i see my n/s front tyre bald on the inner edge :eek: Not just the inner edge but it looks like it's gone half way up the tyre (Avon logo half gone) but it's only on the n/s :confused: is this my wishbone bushes or is it the tracking :confused:

Yeah, I'm having the same problem with the inside of the fronts wearing. I had the wishbone bushes and drop links done last year, but it hasn't made any difference. Is it the tracking or just a quirk of Alfas?

If you have done the wishbones its gotta be the tracking :) :)

I agree with Daiblack....................especially if you have lowered the car as it tends to make the wheels toe out more and increase inner tyre wear if not re adjusted ;) :D

What tyre pressures are you guys running...too low and it will wear the inner edges.

So i take the oil filler cap of and to see ... yep!! The dreded white stuff :mad: stuck round the cap. :rant: :rant: Proberly explans the strange burst of life and heavy fuel consumption :rolleyes:

Never done a head gasket on my 8v so you will proberly be hearing from me for a while yet sorry :rolleyes:

Are you sure its the expansion bottle leaking and not the water pump :confused:

Or one of the rad hoses???

Btw before you tear it apart find the leak and also clean the mayo off the cap and run it for a bit .................if you do lots of short journeys you will get that happening anyway due to condensation ;)
