yes, all the cranks are the same from 2L engines (All TS anyway) Unsure about 2L JTS cranks
Sorry Davie, but you are wrong there. The CF3 engines have a longer (or shorter, cant remember which) throw than the CF1 engine. I went through 3 different cranks before finding a good one for my alloy top one.

If they are the same, i would be quite p1ssed off as i wasted a fair bit of money on them etc but looking at the drawings for the cranks etc, they were different.

I dont 100% know. My mechanics who built my engine were certain that they were different. I checked the drawings (to which i cant even remember where they are) and im sure they were different.

Im sure somebody like "alfa tuner" will be able to help. It may be worth giving them a quick call and finding out 100%.
