Davidm Hero Member Posts: I would say that doesn't sound too far wrong, the problem being, engine rebuilds can mean different things to all sorts of people so in one sense the answer probably needs to be read as, it all depends.
Also precisely what needs to be done, whether standard or alternatively you are seeking improvements to be made ie. Finally also it also depends on the rate of exchange for parts to be aquired, and the price of labour of the mechanic you may use. There are so many variables. I have had for instance been quoted less for an engine to be rebuilt, but similarly have spent that sort of money in the past on a standard engine rebuild. I am also all too well aware of the types of costs that people for instance may spend on a race engine.
Good luck, as I am assuming you need to overhaul a motor? Yes it's my standard motor in a 2l GTV, so a yeah? The engine is the original build and is smoky and is burning heaps of fuel and oil for the millage. I was hoping that quote was parts and labour inclusive Damned bad luck mate. Yes definitely a Nord engine, and essentially the same as a If you get in touch with Mike, he has a couple of engines for sale though if memory serves me correct 1.
The alternative is to perhaps get in touch with Marc at Milano Spares or similar to see if they have anything available. I guess the other thing to consider is to keep an eye out both here on the forum under the for sale sections for engines for sale, or ebay.
Otherwise there is probably no alternative but an engine rebuild and in truth you probably won't know the extent of cost until it is stripped down. However, if it is smokey under power then it is most probably rings and bearings etc, if smokey on the overrun, ie when backing off downhill than its likely to be valves, valve stem seals etc. Hope that makes sense.The kit comprises our hollow billet cams in mild fast road profile, performance valve springs, DLC cam followers, GTA curved rampipes and gaskets to rebuild and install the head.

Crankshafts are sent to our machine shop and fully inspected to check for imperfections. Polished and ground where necessary.
Cylinder heads are sent to a specialist cylinder head company where they completely dismantled, and skimmed to ensure a perfect seal on the block. Valve guides are checked and replaced if there is any damage damage occurs if the cam belt has snapped, causing the valves to be bent where they impact with the pistons.
Once rebuilt, the head is pressure-tested.
Engine blocks are carefully inspected for imperfections or cracks. Engine bores are cleaned, checked and re-honed to allow efficient bedding in of the new piston rings.

The original design had short pushrods for the exhaust valves in a design similar to earlier Lancia Fulvia engines.
The first DOHC version was in the Alfa Romeowith an aluminium alloy engine block and head with sodium filled exhaust valves. The original engine displaced 2. Inthe German Alfa Romeo dealer and tuner Gleich offered a 2. Dieter Gleich was sure that engine displacement enlargement is still the best and, for the life of the engine, the healthiest way of tuning. The engine capacity was increased to nearly 2.
The 2. Total displacement was 2, It was a pleasure. The original 2. The total displacement was 2, It was, too, a 2-valve-per-cylinder design with a single belt-driven camshaft per cylinder bank and six carburettors.
Special camshafts and carbs were used giving a power figure of Only complete GTV6 3. The 3. Pulled by the racing success of the 3. As the previous engines, it was a 2-valve-per-cylinder design with a single belt-driven camshaft per cylinder bank. The main difference with the racing 3. A four-valve version was introduced in with the Alfa Romeo This engine version was awarded as the International Engine of the Year in The engine was upgraded to dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder in British automotive engineering company Cosworth was keen to buy assembly lines of the Alfa Romeo V6 engine, but the Italian company did not want to sell it.

It is best to have the engine mounted on a suitable engine stand, in order to do this you will need to remove the clutch cover, clutch and flywheel. The next job is to remove the rocker cover, this is secured by the 6 fasteners along the top of the engine and two M6 bolts on the front. The camshaft chain tensioner needs to be slackened using the 14mm nut on the front of the head when the chain is loose this needs to be tightened.
The camshaft drive chain then needs to be removed, there is a split link in the chain which you have to find and undo, noting that the closed end faces the direction of travel. The cylinder head can now be removed, this is secured by the 10, 19mm capped nuts between the camshafts and 2 M8 nuts either side of the camshaft chain chest, these go up into the cylinder head.
The head can now be pulled off, if it has seized on its studs you will have to use a special puller to do the job. It is advisable to remove the distributor at this point noting the relationship between the rotor arm and the crank position as it has to go back in correct position to enable the engine to run Once the head is off the engine needs to be turned over and the sump needs to be removed, on a Giulia this has to be done in two halves while on an Alfetta it is one part, the fuel pump and drive rod needs to come out before the oil pump can come off the oil pump is secured by the three fasteners along the lower face of the engine and once these are undone it will slide out.
The front pulley has to be removed before the timing chain case can then be removed to expose the lower timing chain, the upper and lower gears for this then have to be pulled off the front of the crankshaft. You can now remove the big end nuts while making sure that the pistons and liners do not fall out and checking that the con rods are numbered in the correct order, once this has been done successfully you can remove the main bearing caps and extract the crank shaft.
If the pistons and liners are still in place which is usually the case the piston should now be removed from its liner and the liner should be extracted from the block. Rebuilding the engine is achieved by reversing these instructions Related Links: Alfa Romeo Giulia Gearbox strip and rebuild.

Slides into the tensioner mechanism for bolt to lock against.In Italian it is known as the "bialbero", and has also been nicknamed the "Nord" North engine in reference to its being built in Milan in the North of Italy and to distinguish it from the Alfa Romeo Boxer engine built in the South Sud for the Alfasud. Development of that engine was overseen by Orazio Satta Puliga who would also helm development of its successor.
The Disco Volante had a 2-litre DOHC four cylinder engine with an aluminium block and sleevesbut this seems to have been a custom version of the engine rather than a prototype of the forthcoming Twin Cam. While the Twin Cam shared some features with the engine, it was a new design by Giuseppe Busso. The engine featured:.
These features made the Twin Cam an advanced design for a production car engine of the mids and would, with minor variations, form the basis of all future versions of the engine. In adapting the engine to the transverse front-engine, front-wheel-drive layout the engine block and transaxle case were built as one unit. Only three of these engines were built. On June 27, a larger Twin Cam appeared in the just-released Giulia.
This largest production Twin Cam also had fewer teeth in the ring-gear and 6 bolts holding the flywheel instead of 8.alfa romeo 4c engine
When the engine was adapted for use in the Alfetta inthis necessitated a new oil pump and a change away from the finned sump used in the series cars. Since the Alfetta also used a rear-mounted transaxle, there was no need for a pilot bearing in the engine. Alfa Romeo's Autodelta competition arm produced a multiplicity of variations on the Twin Cam for different racing classes and cars including the racing oriented GTA.
Many of these engines used dual ignition systems see "Twin Spark". Even though Alfa Romeo never sold a production version of the Twin Cam with more than 8 valves, at least two 16 valve cylinder heads were available.
A number of Autodelta engines had them, and another valve head was developed by the tuner Franco Angelini. These heads are called "testa stretta" narrow head. Some engines also had what was called a "monosleeve" liner, where all four cylinder bore liners are cast side-by-side in a single piece. In Alfa released the Giulietta Turbodelta. Alfa Romeo's Twin Spark technology used dual ignition to fire two spark plugs in the cylinder head of each piston bore and was first used in the A.
