Alfetta rear flex disc
 
Having trouble finding a rear flex disc for my Alfetta. Seems supplies are out of stock. Can a disc for a GTV6 be used? Any other alternatives?

rear flex disc
 
What year Alfetta? Early and late are different.
A GTV6 flex will not worK.
It took me quite a while to find a rear disc for my 79.

I don't know of alternatives. I have a '76 GT. Had a heck of a time finding one. I know they switched donut designs around that time, which makes donuts for mine even more of a unicorn. What year is yours?

I have had good luck with the correct parts at reasonable prices from Bertlesbeck in Germany. Their website is Alfa Romeo Parts & Alfa Romeo Tuning and when you order, they will send an email for confirmation. The confirmation will show your price without the German VAT and their rates for Fedex shipping to the US are very reasonable. They seem to keep most parts in inventory especially for the older cars that were common in Europe but are very few and far between here in the USA.

It's a 1978. Thanks for the lead!

I've worried for the day when I need new flex discs. Can you convert the whole drive shaft to one from a GTV6? Or what would have to go into doing that?

flex disc
 
Highwood does not have the rear flex disc for late USA cars. He has the rear disc for the late Euro cars. They are not the same.
If anyone needs a rear flex disc for the late Euro cars, I bought one to see if it could be made to work. Not without
a lot of work.
And fitting a GTV6 driveshaft is not feasible. The diameter of the yokes are larger on the GTV6. Front and back.

Worked for me. The so called Euro version is on me 75 Sedan and 75 Race Car. Bolted right in. No vibrations and I go fast.
Also bought a set for my 79 and they worked fine.
Why would there be a difference? ALFA Romeo wouldn't change a driveshaft because it going to the U.S.?
They're cheap. They are all the same! I got all me donuts from Chris and have a spare set. Never know. Good advise.
GTV-6 are too big, not compatible to a Fetta.

Pictures of my 79 Alfetta GT driveshaft. Two flex joints that are correct for my GT. One new and one used next to the driveshaft. At far right is flex disc purchased from Highwood. When I bought the later Euro part, Chris said Alfa did supply a kit to use the late style with my early -79- drivehaft but that the kit was no longer available.
Now maybe it will work without the centering mechanism. Not going to try it.
And I have owned the 79 GT since new. Watched it come off the truck. And no one has worked on this GT except me. Ever. Over 250,0000 miles.
