Timngbelt change 2.0 155hp...

Hi guys im a local idiot living in finland . I bought me one Fiat marea weekend 2.0 hlx 2001 whit only one owner and 115tkm on it. They said everything is serviced bla bla.. Got it for 1200 in sweden of a cardealer.... F*******g s***t.. There was nothing done on it. Timingbelt, otherbelts, plugs and so on.. And rust!!.
Well anyway since i paid it before i saw the car and the dealer run away and left the car to me..

I drove it home to finland (whit ferry) and starded to check things up.
The gasket is it crankcase? (where the cams are) was broken, Bearing for steering pump, all wheels for serpentin belt, belt etc..

Then i read at this forum that engine deosnt need removal for timing belt change. Its true! And that it can take 10hours or so thats true also . It took me atleast that 10hours to remove all "things" that is in the way of few bolts. Well anyway the bracket where alternator, powersteering, ac compressor is attached to.. That is a funny looking part.. ohh almost forgot intake tubes broken also. And thermostat, brakes etc the list is long.
Anyway now i got all parts to it and its running fine the car its self its great. I used k/n intake filter for it because the other tubes where broken.

The 2.0 engine seems to be quite uncommon espesially in scandinavia? Dont know how common it is in south europe. Soon its time for lots of welding almost whole floor needs to be done. I know not worth it but soon its done anyway.
