  1. Clutch replacement & flywheel resurfacing - engine balance?

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Evening guys, I don't want to be waking up any sleeping dogs but I have come across some controversy in general about the aspect of flywheel (engine in general) balancing and would be in for some guidance as I don't know what to believe anymore... Were 105 nord engines (2000 specifically)...
  2. Normal Clutch ?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    The clutch on my car has a high bite point and I was wondering if this is normal or if this is a sign of the clutch wearing out? This being my first Alfa ever, I do not really know whats normal and what isn't. The clutch never slips and Ive never had the car kick out of gear. I would say the...

  4. 164 24v clutch and flywheel change

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Just wanted to post this to know if I am mad for even considering replacing the clutch, flywheel and associated crank seal in my drive. Have once changed a gearbox on a 1.5 litre Fiat and remember the weight of that box made it a dog to man handle back into position. With a 24v 3.0 Alfa...
  5. 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce Grinding!!!

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My red 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce isn't letting me get into 1st, 2nd gear, or into reverse when the car is on. However I'm able to once the car is off. If I attempt to get into these gears it grinds and I need to apply great force to actually get it into gear. But of course I haven't done...
  6. clutch hydraulics

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Bleeding my clutch system stopped gears from grinding a year ago, but it's back. I bled it again and it was good for a week. I replaced the slave and bled it again and now it's only good for overnight. Do I need a master? Looks like there are bubbles coming up in the fluid reservoir every time...
  7. 1986 Spider Quad Pinn- intermittent clutch

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My Quad is not driven much. Last few times, the clutch will allow me to shift gears but the transmission doesn't engage. It is as if it is stuck in neutral. Then when it feels like, it will allow me to engage and start moving. Other times it will rev up and then slowly dump into gear. Could be...
  8. 1957 Alfa veloce spider flywheel

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Hello, I am having difficulty putting my 4 speed transmission up to my engine. I think I might have the wrong flywheel or the wrong starter. What is the correct flywheel size for a 1957 veloce spider (1300) engine vs a (1600) engine. Diameter and tooth count would be great! Thank you.
  9. Clutch pedal release

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    I was giving the GTV a good thrashing the other day and abruptly noticed the travel of the clutch pedal on release was rather slow, by this i mean after releasing the clutch it would not spring back to its home position as quickly as it had previously done. I took the car back home and the...
  10. Best bang for the buck for lightening flywheel / clutch?

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    So the clutch in my Berlina is started to slip if I stomp on it in 4th or 5th gear. While I'm in there I figure I should replace whatever I can, within reason. But I don't have $1k or the time to take the trans apart and lighten it. My current plan includes: Replace fluid with Redline 75/90...
  11. My '86 Spyder Graduate needs a $1000 clutch apparently, thoughts?

    New Members Introductions - Please Read
    Absolutely new here! Hello alfabb! So I bought it as a quarter life crisis car, just before graduating. It was only $3,000, 130,000ish miles, only 2-3 previous owners (they kept way better care of it than myself, away from rain in a garage or covered). It has been falling apart bit by bit since...
  12. How do I open the clutch master cylinder?

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    I got it all disconnected and ready to rebuild but I don't see a cir-clip on the end. Do I have to separate the spring and connecting arm off the body and it is actually inside?
  13. Milano Clutch Removal

    Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    All, Trying to pull off the clutch assembly from an '88 Verde (alfaparticle's old one that I bought from the person he sold it to...that gentleman basically killed it and left it for nothing more than a parts car). Following the manuals, where I am at from the picture, I believe the clutch...
  14. White Post Restorations

    Product/Vendor Reviews
    IRONBLOCK turned me on to White Post Restorations to have the clutch m/c rebuilt in my Montreal. They did an amazing job. First of all the unstuck the piston and then cleaned the m/c thoroughly. The put in a brass sleeve so the m/c piston will be very unlikely to be stuck again in the future...
  15. Montreal Clutch Master Cylinder

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, Was looking for good information on rebuilding my clutch master. Been to BT's book/page and see that replacement ones are not easily obtained. Giorgio has them and they look good, trying to save $330+. My question is this...has anyone taken their clutch m/c apart? The main pushrod withing...
  16. Montreal Clutch Trowout Bearing C-clip

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, On TAV41 (attached), the diagram references 2200.25109, what looks like the c-clip for the throwout bearing downstream of the clutch plate. My (apart) transmission does not have the clip and I cannot locate it on the web by p/n. Does anyone know a suitable alternative or size? Thanks, JP

    Hi, I have a 3.0 24v and after some repairs to the reverse switch last night I found that the car will no longer go into any gear while the car is running.

  20. Dispute with shop over repairs - seeking technical advice

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Hi, I have a rather bad experience with a shop regarding a clutch change. Last year I had the clutch and the slave cylinder changed. The repair was with 3 years warranty (special chain in Denmark). Now less than 1 year and not even 20.000 Km, the clutch has failed. I brought it back to the...
