Are my plug wires bad and if so would that cause stalling after the car is hot? - Page 21 - Alfa Romeo Bulletin Board & Forums

Just boosting this thread to say thanks to everyone who helped, because the car is running like a champ and I've been able to put several hundred miles on the clock these past few months, including some pretty hard driving out in the Hill Country, without so much as a hiccup (once I replaced the AAV with a manual heater core valve, I mean). I've pushed timing several degrees with great results, and even the idle is smooth and even. A couple of old-timer ALfa guys stopped by a few weeks ago and helped me dial it in a bit, and everything seems to be solid. November & December in Central Texas is prime windows-down driving weather so I plan to use the time wisely. Thanks again!

as good as a car can be... briefly.
