    GT (1963-1977)
    Hi, james here, first post - Warning purists! - I'm wondering basically if anybody knows all the parts that need to be replaced to be able to replace a smoothnose front with a stepnose. as I have a 72 junior in the shop being restored, but I kniow i'd be disappointed with it when its all nice...
  3. Replace Guibo with CV joint, Anyone done?

    Gearbox, Transaxle, Differential & Propshaft
    Working on my Alfa Dio Tipo "Special" street/track day build. Now mocking up the drive-train and chassis. Not thrilled with the bulky and too prone to failure Guibo. It will be right next to my knee, so despite incorporating driveshaft safety hoops I'm looking for a better design. Tried to...
  4. For Sale Weber-SPICA conversion basic kit. $150

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    Doing more work than originally intended on my '78 Spider. Have almost finished a Euro manifold conversion. Not so simple as some claim with the linkage being backward and the need of a support rod. My Spica/Weber conversion kit is now surplus to my needs so up for sale, $150.00 shipped. I have...
  5. Hmm, interest in Weber conversion linkage?

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Not sure if this is the best place for this but I am wondering if anyone else would be interested in Weber/Euro manifold conversion linkage? I have one Euro manifold and the original bell-crank that bolts to the bottom of the manifold. The trouble with this setup is that, A. Those bell-crank...
  6. Wanted Euro 2000 Spider intake manifold.

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    Pulled the SPICA/Weber conversion off my Spider. Unnecessarily heavy and lots of unused studs! I have an earlier intake with the screw-in type thermostat that I am sure can be made to work. But a Euro manifold will have all the varied ports and fittings in the same location as the SPICA so...
  7. 1978 Spider Conversion ???

    Engine Conversions
    I recently acquired a 1978 Spider with roughly 180,000 miles. It consumes and leaks oil. It has compression issues also. It runs, but is kinda rough. Instead of rebuilding, I am wanting to swap the engine with a NON-ALFA (Sorry) engine. Either a 4 or 6 cylinder. I've heard about Nissan, Mazda...
  8. Rear bumper conversion... My way?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello everyone, I've been restoring my 1981 spider veloce (let's call her Allegra) I haven't posted anything yet as I'm getting all my pictures together. I want to get this car on the road by the weekend so I'm hard at it. When I got to the rear bumper, I couldn't find anything that shows an...
  9. Difference between 105 and 116 Nord Engine

    Engine Conversions
    Hey everyone, As the title suggests I'm trying to find out if there's any difference between the Nord engines used in the 105 series cars and the 116 series cars? (besides displacement of course!) Reason being that I think the engine in my 1750 GTV is finished (barely cranks over and third...
  10. Backfire issues with webers - timing questions - any help would be nice

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi everyone, I'm trying to get my spider in tune for this spring (in MN, the spring started last week) and after a winter of working on other systems, its all coming together. Unfortunately, I'm having some pretty consistent popping from my webers. I know, I know.. read up on the subject first...
  11. Carburetor conversion

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    Well, apart of any originality logical thread, I was wondering myself about a carb conversion. The carbs should not be a problem, I suppose that the correct ones should be the same Dell'Orto DRLA 40 or Weber IDF 36 used on Alfa 33 (not the 60's one). The problem is about the mainfolds and...
  12. 3.0 24V conversion of 75 3.0 America. Preproject questions.

    Engine Conversions
    Hello all at AlfaBB I am seriosly considering converting my 75 3.0 America to 3.0 24V engine. The idea is to do it with a 164s engine (211 hp) because then it would be possible to pass the swedish vehicle inspection with swapped engine and drive it totally legal on the streets :D. More horse...
  13. 164 v6 to rear drive configuration?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    As the owner of a 67 GTV I am wondering if the 164 V6's block configuration renders it capable of being converted to a rear-drive configuration?
  14. Ignorance is bliss - SPICA conversion

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Hi All, I am a new owner of a 74 Spider. It was running well, although rich when I got it. Being the naive Alfa owner I decided to take matters in my own inexperienced hand and adjust the cold start (although it does not have the lever to adjust, nor the documented "N,C,F" markings. I also...
  15. 3.2 gta V6 in a 115

    Engine Conversions
    hallo all, I was looking for pieces to make a gtam replica engine for a friend's gt2000, but prices are really high, next to prohibitive, like 13000 euros only for a head. So, we were discussing about a "crazy" transplant, using a V6 coming from a 147 gta. I'm wondering if anyone tried this...
  16. Ignition Timing after Spica-Carb Conversion

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi all, This might be a dumb question, but I am having some tuning difficulties with my 75 US Spec Spider. The engine has been rebuilt and run in and I have fitted a cam similar to Euro Spec and it has Solex Carbs as was pre-converted when I bought it. It still has the origional US spec timing...

  18. '67 Super dual-circuit brake conversion

    Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    My '67 Super basket case has been off the road since 1984. Sometime around then, the steel brake lines were all removed from the car. Nearly 25 years of corrosion has left them pretty much unusable. Since I'm faced with redoing the brake system from the ground up and in the interest of not...
