  1. 164 24v AFM internals

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, I bought a used Porsche 944 turbo AFM for a 24v 3.0 Alfa 164 manual, Bosch number 0280 203 026, and have just taken it apart. I could feel the spring loading was incorrect so guessed someone had tried refurbishing it and failed. I took the lid off my original too for reference and resetting...
  2. 24v cambelt jump cause?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Now that is has happened for the second time, 10 years apart, am able to offer this conclusion with some degree of confidence: put the 'wrong' spec oil filter in your 24v 164 and expect a cambelt jump shortly after. The first time this happened was in 2008, the morning after an oil change...
  3. looking for engine info

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hey everyone, I picked up a 164s engine and I'm just looking for some more info on this particular engine. The block number is what appears to be AR64301.60142 I'm converting the engine for use in a GTV6. Were all S engines the longer block? Just trying to make sure I source the correct parts...
  4. 164 3.0 front spring and roll

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, What I don't understand is why the 164 3.0 12v front springs were not uprated to cope with the extra weight of the 3.0 24v engine. Maybe over the general weight of the car the extra 2 cams are not huge but is that right in terms of handling? The 164 24v's I've driven have been brilliant but...

    Free Alfa Romeo Cars and Parts
    I've just started disassembling my structurally, fatally rusted 1988 Milano 3.0, and need to get rid of some stuff. I don't mean to make, or lose, any money on it. So I'll give it to you if you pick it up/have it picked up. But I'd of course have to charge to pack and ship parts...probably a...

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hi Folks, I have had my 3.0 12v 164 engine in my GTV6 for a couple of years now and thought I would just put this out there as I don’t recall seeing anyone else ask/comment about it… What should the redline be for a 3.0 12v 164 motor? In doing the swap I have kept all of the 2.5 running gear, I...
  7. For Sale 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Verde

    Alfa Romeo Cars For Sale & Wanted
    The car runs fine, but it needs some electrical work; control board not working. Also, the transmission mount appears to be loose. The paint is a somewhat faded as well as the plastic trim. For the interior, the car needs a new headliner, and the front seats have tears. This car is (technically)...

  11. 164 3.0 Milano Engine Build

    Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    My winter engine build project is starting soon. So far I picked up a decent 93' 164 3.0 with S cams and a mild port job from a fellow BB'er. It was already in a Milano so it has the oil pan. Here is what the engine does NOT have. Oil pump system, intake system, front cover around the crank...

  17. Boring out an '86 2.5 gtv6

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    '86 2.5 gtv6 - To swap to a 3.0 24v engine or supercharge - that is the question I was wondering if anyone had experience with boring out one of these engines. My initial thought was to replace the existing engine with a 3.0 from a verde, but after some thought, boring the stock one out to a...

    I have a 3 liter motor that had the heads prepared by Sperry sveral years ago. The engine sat for several years after the heads were done. I discovered that one of the cylinders had low compression so I removed the head and found that a valve wasn't seated properly. After repairing this I...
