Problem added: Oct 9, 2012 (7 years ago)
A Friends Car - The Timing belt has cracked on the Alfa. Does anyone know if the Valves actually come down into the Combustion chamber. I am trying to ascertain if he should just go away and do the Belt of If the Head needs to come off.I heard from someone last year that the Belt had cracked twice on the same Alfa (model unknown)without causing any damage.
