    Does anyone know if it is common for the fuel pump to surge with the turn indicator? Is the turn indicator drawing too much Current?
  6. Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    So I discovered an interesting electrical problem with my 81 Spider.

    Hi guys, new here. Just traded my 1.3 Mito for a 1.9 Alfa GT and I'm loving it. Beautiful and drives so well. I'm having an issue tho that I'm not even sure if it actually is an issue or by design but I find it weird. On the driver side I can't adjust the side mirror past a certain point. I...
  8. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Ok folks, I have been tinkering with this thing for a couple years on and off. Life being what it is, I've had to step away a couple times. I'm back at it again. At one point I had it running but it has sat for over a year since I've put any effort into getting it running. I've replaced the...

  12. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello, I am in the process of swapping out a bad 1991 column switch for a previous series model. Also changing the steering wheel. I connected the wires from the old switch (left them in the fuse box and just cut and spliced the new wires in) They all match colorwise. The headlamps and the turn...
  13. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, After having my column switch replaced with a used part on my 1991, it is now only working on high beam setting. I have another used part that I purchased from Ebay. Can anybody recommend a shop to rebuild the switch before I have it installed? I want to make certain it will work properly...

    I have just been confronted with a starting issue on my S3 1988 Spider. It has spent several months having new carbs fitted and was running like a dream, however yesterday on attempting to start I got a couple of spins of the starter but the engine failed to catch. Then on 3rd attempt nothing -...

    Hey guys, new member here. I have a 1982 Spider Veloce that appears to be having some electrical issues. Something is draining the battery and I have no clue what or how to find it. It used to randomly sometimes not start and I would have to take out the key and retry multiple times and it would...

    Turn indicator on my new '79 Spider stays on all the time, even with the key off. I also notice that if I turn the wheel to the left the stalk moves down and turns on the left signal. So I'm pretty sure the switch needs a bit of work. Switch causing the lamp to stay on? Need to know as it drains...

    Great forum. I'm hoping there is someone out there that can help me get my car running. I bought a 1988 Spider Veloce last November. I drove it 1.5 hours home.
