I was talking to a gear head ( non Alfa ) buddy of mine and he asked if any of the water pump bolts communicated with an oil gallery. He had a problem similar to this on one of his race cars. Does...

Just another thought. This whole problem seemed to take place while the car was sitting. Granted it sat for two years. The oil on the dipstick was absolutely clear, as was the coolant. If anything...

Good idea to pull the valve covers. That will be next on the list along with a head retorque. The coolant I've lost in pulling off hoses seems to be as clear as when I replaced it. No signs of oil...

Since my post I've been doing a little more checking. Pulled all the plugs, they look fine as they only have a few hundred miles on them. Don't have a bore scope but do have an LED on a wand. Piston...

OK, found the car. Unfortunately it appears to be a straight 164, 1991 vintage. The driver door was hit, so no mirror Bob. Fog lights are also broken. Peter, not sure if there is anything on this...

Quick update. Called the yard, they said they still have the 164. They just don't know where they put it. (?!) Sounds like my work bench. Anyhow, I'll be out of town for a few days, when I get back...

164 donor parts

An intact 164 just appeared in the local Pic-n-Pull. I was wondering what easily removable parts, considering its pretty cold, would be worthwhile to grab as spares for my GTV6?
Thanks, Mike

I'm not sure that the final conclusions have been posted yet. It seems almost to be an ongoing blog since readers can post questions and, in time, get an answer from the project leader.
Anyhow nice...
