I've got that kind of stuff hanging around in my basement, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Hit up your local Alfa owners club.
I also think I've heard of a tappet from some other brand of car (VW Golf or something) that can be used, but I can't remember what car it was from or even if it was definitely the boxer engine which it could be substituted into. ;)

Tried 'The Spare Place' in Adelaide?? They should have the tappets (Buy 8, trust me!). If not VW ones fit (INA brand) Im sure someone will chime in with a part number etc, search this forum for the answer. Valve spring, try a wreckers. Euro Car Parts is also a good supplier of Alfa 33 stuff, they have a network all over Australia, bound to have something. Not sure if 1.5 valve springs would work, but probaby. Is one broken?
