  1. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello -- just looking for some opinions. I am planning on restoring my interior and have been wanting to rebuild the engine with performance parts to hopefully get somewhere around 170whp. Anyways, I figured if everything is out then, I might as well do rust restoration and new paint while the...
  2. Engine Conversions
    I have a v6 from an alfa 164ls that i intend on putting in my triumph spitfire, the problem I've had so far is finding a transmission that would mount to the v6. I planned on using the zf from a maserati biturbo but cant find a bellhousing that would work. Any tip or help would be appreciated.

    I am looking for the pedal assembly and any other parts necessary for converting a Verde to non-ABS.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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?
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...

  20. 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...
