Hi all, new here with my Gt 3.2
« on: August 24, 2021, 05:16:30 PM »
I have a GT 3.2 Manual in Black. Purchased during the lockdown. Replacing brakes all and clutch. I hope I can manage to replace the water pump myself.   

I do work for https://www.carify.com.au/ happy to help if you guys need anything related to the vehicle history. I also have sources from Japan in case you need auction sheets from MLIT.

Regards, Brock

Welcome Brock to the weird & wacky world of Alfa.

Unfortunately to replace the water pump you must remove the Cam Belt. What's the reason for wanting to replace the pump?

If you're worried about the plastic impeller issue, check the cars maintenance history and see if it notes when/where the Cam Belt was replaced. If it was replaced by an Alfa specialist they would have known to use a pump with metal impeller so you should be good.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, there are no log books with the vehicle. The previous owner is a super nice guy. I will message him tomorrow.
