  1. Buy a Clutch Pedal Pivot Shaft

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Alan Ward told me on the phone years ago that he liked to silver solder from the housing side (ie shaft sticking up vertically), that that was sufficient to prevent the breakages... Still waiting the appropriate moment to do it to mine... Cheers Neil

  3. Low voltage at high pressure fuel pump

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Not sure I'm clear on whether your pump runs *better* with a direct 12V applied as Ed suggested, or not - but just to say this, if the pump is not able to push fuel, because of an obstruction in front of it, or behind it (from the tank), then it will pull more current and the voltage as measured...
  4. Low clutch pedal on my '73 GTV

    GT (1963-1977)
    Hmm Not sure if I should throw my hat in the ring here ... But, not sure if you've already said this or not - do you have 12mm throw at the clutch slave lever ? I'm supposing you do as you say shifting is fine. If so then back to the pin that MidLifeCrisis was talking about... Just because...
  5. AFrench Blue '69 GTV Restoration

    GT (1963-1977)
    Rossano, Maybe this is obvious already from what you've found, but the fore-aft is set by the pinch bolt visible just on the left of the picture you posted, against the big nut at the other end of the column housing... You don't want to set the gap between the steering wheel and the housing...
  6. Accelerator pump jet variations? DCOE and DHLA

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Thanks for the reply. Especially the emissions weber usage makes sense for that variant, if the intention is to try to allow it to turn into droplets rather than a stream in the messy air in the counterbore... It looks as though the parts are interchangeable so we'll have to see which one to...
  7. Accelerator pump jet variations? DCOE and DHLA

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Hi all, I've been helping a fellow lister here (chinocapuchino) sort out a variety of issues on his GT Junior with 2L. In doing some work on his DHLA40E's, we see that the installed accelerator pump jets squirt straight down as opposed to the horizontal squirt that one sees in DCOE's. Then...
  8. For Sale Set of AR technical drawings reproduced by Don Black

    Alfa Romeo Collectibles, Manuals For Sale, Wanted
    Well, there you go - thanks for the reference. Not too long into it I located the original message from Don (I xx'ed out the postal address info). So at least there you have the original (brief) description from the man himself. /Neil From: Black <[email protected]> Date: Mon, 07 Dec 1998...
  9. For Sale Set of AR technical drawings reproduced by Don Black

    Alfa Romeo Collectibles, Manuals For Sale, Wanted
    This is a set reproduced by Don Black in 1998/9 and sold by him to interested parties via the Alfa Digest. I bought my set from him at that time. The selection of drawings is quite eclectic. Unfortunately I can't locate his original description in my mails nor in the old Alfa Digest as it...
  10. sealing the splined joint spider diff

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    I've talked several times with Loctite tech support on the phone for questions like this, at least I always found the UK guys helpful. I don't know if it's still like this (the last time was 5-10 years ago), but they were typically two guys on the phone together, it was like talking with those...

  12. Webers not idling smoothly

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    On some euro intake manifolds, #1 has a vacuum take-off. The hole for the take-off should either be properly connected to a distributor with vacuum advance, or should be plugged. If it's open to the atmosphere it'll surely cause a rough idle. But I'm curious, at the beginning of the thread...
  13. Front driveshaft issues.

    GT (1963-1977)
    Thanks Revhead... When I read your reply about the spring, I remembered that 1750GT was into this area starting at this post, http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/5998417-post787.html And there were some dimensions involved including discussions of a spacer, but the differences in length were much...
  14. Horn comes on when I switch my lights on

    GT (1963-1977)
    :wink2: At least one thing not too far off ... One other guess: There are wires that pass very close to the horns that provide power to the underhood light (assuming juniors had one ?). It might be that they are abraded there and are touching the horns. This would make some sense as those...

  16. setting distributor timing from scratch -- 74GTV

    GT (1963-1977)
    Ah - confusion about how the points themselves work ? If it's that, I don't have any pics handy, but basically the wiper on the cam pushes the points apart as it peaks - the wiper is on the outboard point "plate" (toward the outside of the distributor) so the wiper pushes this side of the...
  17. setting distributor timing from scratch -- 74GTV

    GT (1963-1977)
    I'll have a shot... The way to think about the test light and the points is 1) you want the test light to tell you when the points open and close (yes, obvious) 2) the points are in the middle of the "ground line" from the coil -ve to ground. Just think about the test light as being across...
  18. gauges take a second to come to life

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    JimPunkRockFord, sorry if I've not been following this much from the beginning, but there was a pic of the Coil, with two wires connected to the + terminal. One looked new, the other old. My car had the ballast removed already when I got it in '88 but I believe they were normally installed...

  20. gauges take a second to come to life

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    JimPunkRockFord, I'm sure if you search a bit here on the bb, you'll get pictures and threads on ballast resistors. In a nutshell, in an original setup, there are two wires coming from the ignition switch to the positive terminal on the coil. One is to power the coil when the ignition switch is...
