Hello everyone! I need help. In my poor alpha 146 I have to change the head gasket and the timing belt. Can you tell me how to do it? Do you have a detailed guide to do these two things? Thanks a lot to everyone

download the workshop manuals first

these should give you just about everything you will need for the job ( apart from tools )

look through the forum guides for more information,
there is lots of useful stuff in there
things such as aux belt change should be useful

fascinating to think a UK-based resource, could be of use to someone in the homeland of the car...

There is a guide on alfaworksop for doing twinspark belts and water pump, sure the variator is covered as well.
Make sure you have a good tool kit and for the belts the correct cam locks with decent length bolts and a good tdc gauge, I made myself a crank lock as well, just a piece of wood with slots cut in with a car jack pushing it into the crank pulley.
