    That is correct, I should have specified.

    Hi Steve, I am wondering if you have a write up for installing a manual fan switch for the 12v motor. I have your simplified troubleshooting guide, but would like to wire up a manual switch for an extra fail-safe.

    Hello Steve,

    I'm looking for a motor mount, it's for a 2.0 V6 Turbo from 1996. It's the front mount at the timingbelt side.

    Do you have 1 ?

    Hey Steve,
    My name's Zach, a student at Christopher Newport University (not too far from you, actually). I have a 92 164L, and when driving home from work this morning the clutch completely went. The assembly somehow fell apart, so there's no spring action in the pedal. When I finally was able to clear the road (thanks to the assistance of a cop), I found a few parts from the clutch pedal assembly on the floor mat. Alfa Clutch pedal - Imgur I found 10, 13, 2, and 3 on the floor upon my inspection, and have no idea what happened to the rest/what happened to the clutch in general. If you could offer any advice or help me in any way, I would be most appreciative! I'm a new Alfa owner and I love this car, and I absolutely don't want to give up on it!

    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
