Hello to you all.
I am in the need of help, hope someone is willing to clarifies a few questions.
I have over the last year been looking on the Alfa Romeo vans.
The primary source for information is Tony Stevens from Alfa Stop, who runs the Romeo register, and an article in Giuliettaletta also done by Tony Stevens.
There is 2 questions that I, have been able to find answers on
Who produced the rear axle. Was it produced internally by Alfa Romeo, or was it sourced from an outside producer.
The transmission for the Romeo 1-2-3 versions, had as I understand a transmission from ZF the ZF 4 DS –7, on all the Romeo models.
But what transmission was used on the A+F .11-12.
Was that also a transmission from ZF. If so what was the type number.
Or was it a transmission that was modified by Oto-Melara, a sister company to Alfa Romeo.
Looking at the picture of the Romeo drive train, compared to the spare parts catalog for the F12. I don’t see any resembles between the 2 transmission.
Tony Stevens write on the Romeo register:
“together with a de-tuned version of the Giulia 1300 ti engine, a new Oto-Melara transaxle and supposedly improved driveshafts.
This reference can also be found on other web sites.
The housing of the F12 looks very siminglar to a Giulia transmission, with the casted supports on the housing.
By transaxle I understand the the output axle in the transmission, witch engage the driveshaft.
But was the transmission a modified Giulia transmission, or was it supplied from an outside source.
If so WHO.
Hope someone can clear my knowledge
