164 12v distributor seals

Correct shaft seal and oring for 164 12v distributor
00605005160000 dist shaft seal $15.01

00605005120000 dist body seal $3.51

Sizes: Existing timing belt tension question..

Believe it or not I found a new 60500516 shaft seal in the 93L under the driver's seat month ago at Pick-N=Pull, but no part number on the cardboard sealer pack.

I found my spare dizzy parts this morning with part numbers on package boards.

I have the 60500512 dizzy body seals, too.

As you can see shaft seal OD is about 28mm (1 18") and o-ring about 40mm (1 13/16").

Prices are from ARI-Orlando but they don't have shaft seal in stock.

Special tool to remove-rear-coolant-drainage-plug-out-24v-engine

Getting the rear coolant drainage plug out of the 24V engine

I have been able to remove front and rear plugs on 12v with regular 3/8" drive 7/8" socket but this is a nice tool he made for 24v.

His coolant drain plug tool he made for his 24v will work on 12v, too.

My bad. Meant to post that reply/question under the tension-er images. Interestingly, Alibaba shows these at 8-20$ if you buy 300 units.

Alfa 164 12/24v V6 engine/transaxle mounts update 2017

Here are the AR 164 1987-1997 12/24v V6 engine and trasaxle mounts in living color.

1. R/F 60595346
2, R/R 60581462 can be used in R/F position with or without modification to large lower round con-caved washer.
3. Upper rear link with large end 60572058. Just large end 60512998.
Use aftermarket split poly bushing with steel bushing. I prefer yellow-soft with three relief holes in it. Performtek works for me
4. 60507028 Upper small end on rear head mount. Do not even try to insert 60507028 OEM rubber/steel insert "silentbloc" even if you have dry ice or COs fire bottle to freeze. Use instead split poly with steel bushing. I use Performtek poly split bushing with steel bushing.
5. L/F 60510342 5-speed transaxle lower mount or Difatta has a replacement mount I understand now.
6. L/F 60556613 A/T transaxle mount (can also be used w/5-speed manual transaxle.

Yellow split poly bushing pix is small one for upper engine mount. I do not have large one currently in stock to show picture of one with 3-hole relief in poly halves but hope you can see the concept.

91-93 164 air bag reset bulletin 00.90.09

Alfa 164 Technical Service Bulletin 00.90.09
Information: AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT NUMBER 90.09
Models: ALL 164 MODELS [ USA 91-93 only]
Date: 5/24/90
When diagnosing a flashing AIRBAG warning light, use the following guidelines:
NOTE: USE TESTER IF AVAILABLE - SEE PAGE 42 OF THIS BOOK.
TO EXTRACT FAULT CODES FROM THE MEMORY
1. Locate the airbag test connector (4 wires) under the right end of the dashboard. (See Fig. 1)


2. Connect a jumper wire between the blue/black and black wires.
3. Turn on the ignition key.
4. Observe the AIRBAG warning light; it will flash once, followed by a short pause, then flash twice. This represents code 12, which is an indication that the troubleshooting procedure is "running". Code 12 will be repeated 3 times.
(Example: 12-12-12)
5. If fault codes are stored, they will follow the code 12 sequence and the AIRBAG warning light will flash a 2-digit fault code 3 times for each fault indication stored in the memory. (Example: 26-26-26)
6. When the fault memory is empty, the AIRBAG warning light will again flash code 12-12-12 to indicate that all of the stored fault codes have been displayed.


TO CLEAR FAULT CODES AFTER REPAIR:

1. Carry out the procedure outlined above to view all stored fault codes.
2. When the fault memory is empty, and the AIRBAG warning light is flashing l2-l2-12 again (indicating "end of codes"), disconnect the jumper wire at the test connector for 3 seconds.
3. Re-connect the jumper wire at the test connector for 3 seconds.
4. Remove the jumper wire from the test connector, and quickly turn of f the ignition key.
5. Wait 10 seconds, then turn on the ignition key to allow the airbag ECU to test the system. If there are no faults present, the AIRBAG warning light will come on with the key, then go off after 5-8 seconds, and remain off. If there are still faults present in the system, the AIRBAG warning light will come on with the key, go of f after 5-8 seconds, then begin flashing again. If the AIRBAG warning light begins to flash immediately after turning on the ignition key, the previous fault codes HAVE NOT BEEN CLEARED.
6 If the AIRBAG warning light flashes again indicating that there are one or more faults present in the system, extract the fault code(s), repair the fault(s), and clear the fault memory again.

YOU ARE REMINDED THAT ALL AIRBAG DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THIS BULLETIN AND IN THE WORKSHOP MANUALS SHOULD BE FOLLOWED EXACTLY AS STATED TO PREVENT THE POSSIBILITY OF ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT
