  1. Rapid loss of compression; performance

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Reviving this topic, Richard got it right. The electric pump's pressure overwhelmed the carbs. Back to a new block-mounted mechanical pump. The 2017 installation failed rather quickly: <2,000 kms. If the car was driven in this condition and the oil contaminated with fuel, what damage could...
  2. For Sale '72/'73 Rebuilt 2.0L Street Performance Long Block

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    The completed engine has not been run, correct? What would be involved in adding this engine to a stock '69 1600 Super? Changes to the clutch and final drive?
  3. Rapid loss of compression; performance

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Carbs are Solex. If gasoline has been forced into the cylinders, would the oil show high concentrations of gas?

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    I'm the owner, but not a mechanic. Car is with a local specialty mechanic that I have been happy with, up until now. Car is a 1969 Giulia Super, with its original 1600 engine in stock build. Total mileage is unknown, but the current reading is +/- 8,000km as of August 2019. Prior to...

    Best of luck on your project. I'm just over the Peace Bridge in Buffalo, NY. Hope to see you this summer!
  6. Wanted Radio blanking plate OR vintage radio (working or not).

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    As the title says, I am looking for one or the other. Application is for a '69 Giulia Super. Becker or Blaupunkt, or whatever else the factory might have been using at the time. Previous owner installed an aftermarket radio (with cassette!), in what is otherwise a completely stock interior...

  10. Busted by the man

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    While in the Adirondacks... Heading north on Rt. 28 just south of Old Forge, the road opens up to some wide "sweeping" curves. The newer concrete two-lane has clear right-of-ways, wide shoulders, is ultra-safe (except for the occasional deer), and limited to 55 mph. The Audi TT ALMS I was...
  11. Giulia Super 1600 Biscione 69

    Sedan (1962-1977)
    My car - AR883518, a Super Biscione, was completed on March 17, 1969. LHD with standing pedals, and repainted in original color. 5.5 by 14 inch wheels shod with 165 Verdestein tires.
  12. Happy Veterans Day!

    Off-Topic Talk
    I'm with you, DanB. I am greatful for all of our Veterans, but in particular, my beautiful and very smart daughter and her Air Force husband. When my daughter arrived home safely after two rotations, I was the happiest man alive. The Air Force changed her life for the better. Picture below...
  13. Engine Rebuild

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Earlier this year I purchased a 1969 Super Biscione from a European dealer and shipped it home to the U.S. Fortunately, it has required very little mechanical work to get it licensed and roadworthy. My intention is to own this car for some time – no thoughts of flipping, and thus want to make...

    Centerline Products
    Great news. Suppliers like IAP and Centerline contribute to the enjoyment of operating a classic. Centerline had great representation at the Warwick meet this past summer.
  15. Where can I find an original caramel tan carpet for my '64 Sprint Gt?

    GT (1963-1977)
    Check with World Upholstery in California. They sent me some samples, including a caramel color, in a "velour" finish. The velour was more expensive than the domestic nylon - $545 v. 390 (this is for a Giulia Super). My local trim guy will do the installation, knew the company and said they...

    Glad to see this long-running topic popped up. My "new" Giulia Biscione recently cleared U.S. Customs, and will soon be on its way to its new home in Western New York. I saw it last near Rotterdam NL in late May, when I got to poke around underneath the lift and test drove it on some...
  19. Suggestions - wheel size; suspension kits; workshop manuals

    Sedan (1962-1977)
    No damage, but sun rot, stains, uneven color. Originality is fine, but not this.
