Question about 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider
I need the special tools for puting the engine back in time or something to take there place?
You can do it the old fashioned way. The timing belt has to be off to do this. The top belt gear has a hash mark by the nut holding it in. It has to be top center. Then you have to take the first spark plug out and stick a long screw driver inside there. You will need two people to do the next step. You then, Turn the bottom gear clockwise until you can feel the first head come all the way up. The second person holding the screw driver will know when its all the way up. Then you stop. You then put the Timing belt back on. You cannot move the gears at all when you put the belt back on.
