SO I go to change the thrmostat on the alfa 156 JTS Veloce yadda yadda yadda super duper jobby, because its running at 50C, and the bottom bolt shears off in the cylinder head.


Its an 8.8 carbon steel bolt too, so its going to be a pig to drill and easy out, and I gont have a MIG welder to weld a nut to whats left (this actually works well since so much heat is rammed into the bolt that it frees itself). And the angle to drill is not perfect, so there is little chance of drilling straight down the thing, even with the battery out, and I dont want to have to take the head off.

So, plan 2, put a couple of holes in either side of the sheared off bolt, drill to 6.8, tap to M8 x 1.25, and stick in some M8 stud. Then make up a little plate with two holes to fit over the studs, and pull the thermostat flange up tight. Should do it. Just need to find some place to get the right drill size...

F***ing cars.....

Still, changed the lamnda sensor, did an oil change, and found the knock, the front right suspension turret was lose. Blush | :O

Tell you what, Italian stuff isnt as good as it was. There is no way they would use a steel bolt in an ally head in the old days, a bit of stud and a nut is far better; the stud corrodes to the ally, and the nut would always undo. Thats how they used to make their engines, what wrong with the twats?
