  1. Giubo Driveshaft Refresh Questions

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello Alfisti, I think I need a new Giubo and Support/Bearing and I'd like to get your opinion on which one to buy and how many extra bits I might need to complete the job. I've read many threads on the subject but none discuss the various options and extra bits associated with a Driveshaft...
  2. Alfetta Drive Shaft Rattle

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hi all, My Alfetta GTV has a nasty rattle within the clutch assembly. Initially I thought it was an issue with the drive shaft. I could hear a rattle coming from the rear of the drive shaft and it would go away when I put the clutch in. Having a hunt around on the bulletin board I found the...
  3. Montreal Driveshaft Rebuild

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, I am trying to replace the center bushing and bearing and am having difficulty taking off the flange end of the driveshaft. It does not appear to be connected to threads and I have lubricated it for two weeks. Is there a trick? Do I press it off? Just want to be extra careful and not mess...

    Hello All; I have a 66 sprint gt with a 2l drive train. It has the original drive shaft. I would like to convert to the later style with the improved center support bushing. Is this a simple bolt up, or is it more involved? thanks, as always, for your help. marc
  7. Noise from the rear / driveshaft center bearing specs

    Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    Hello, My 75 TS 1989 has recently started making noise from the rear during accelerations. Noise appears to come from the rear of the car and disappears when cornering left while still accelerating. Gear, engine or vehicle speed doesn't seem to affect the noise. Side driveshaft rubber boots...
