If the boots are torn I guarantee you'll be convinced the transmission is on its last legs from the noise even if it's perfectly fine.

Well, I thought it was interesting. I've never seen one of those Pininfarina delete plates, myself.

If you trace the wiring, you'll see that the 15A fuse on the aux motronic relay also protects the fuel pump relay. Diagram I have is in German (which in this case probably works out pretty well.)

Check the relays in the back panel. One of them has a fuse right behind it that's for power to both fuel pumps and the oxygen sensor. It's possible that blew.

It isn't so bad, provided you have the distributor pointed in a reasonable direction. I have the port to the right on the Giulia, and I'm able to get the USB cable in fairly easily using a mechanic's...

There were two radios used on the S4 spider. A 1991 would have likely had the Clarion unit. If it's a Clarion and you turn the knob to on, the LCD should say "CODE" if it is code locked. If you...

Try Alfa Parts Exchange. Call Larry and tell him what you need.

That’s pretty scary: any idea what started it?

It doesn't seem right that you lost all brakes on an '86. The front and rear should be separate circuits. You also should've gotten a brake warning light from the float in the reservoir.

Got it, I thought you were putting teflon on the plugs that replaced the bleeders that should've been there.

I'll add that it seems really odd you lost brakes completely. With a dual-circuit system you should've still had fluid in the rear part of the reservoir, and the rear brakes still should've worked. ...

You can get the hose to the compressor off without removing the knee pad. You need to jam your head in the footwell a bit but I've done it.

Assuming the cooling system is in good shape you shouldn't have any issues with the heat or the climb. Spiders in general don't tend to overheat.



Good luck with that :D
