    Hello Steve, I live in Uzbekistan, and I am building (reassembling) alfa 164 V6 3.0, and I've got some troubles with timing belt, can you help me please? by Skype, if it is possible

    hello steve, im andres from argentina, i ve posted a thread some days ago about my 64 ts 93 not getting to top speed, do you think could be the phase variator? is there a way to test it? (the engine revs up to cut off in the first three gears,to 6k rpm in 4th and dead stops at 5k rpm in 5th gear and 180kph)another solution that i have in mind, are the injectors. do you think that perhaps worn or very dirty injectors could be the problem?, this car drove around very long time with a busted thermostat, and the fuel is not very good around here.
    kind regards

    Good afternoon Steve, I have been following you for a couple of years and I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a 164, my question is about the 164 in PA that popped its timing belt; in your expert opinion, what would be the worst case scenario?
    Thanks for all of your insight and advice.

    Hi Steve. I am having another problem with my 164. I'm hoping that you may have some answers for me. yesterday I drove the car, and it ran great. this morning it would not start. No spark to the plugs, but there is juice to the pos side of the coil when the key is on. Crankshaft sensor?? I guess if I'm going to own this car I better get a shop manual lol . 140.00 at IAP. Thanks Mike
