    Trying to get another GTV6 on the road. My 84 gtv6 came to me missing the radiator and fans (and most of the motor but I have sourced a replacement). I am interested in a used setup or ideas for an aftermarket replacement that will work.

  9. Replacing Cooling Fan - 1986 Spider

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Last night, my 1986 spider threw the belt and the cooling fan disintegrated. I need to replace it and am wondering two things: 1. Can I replace the existing cooling fan (and shroud) without removing the radiator? 2. if I put an electrical fan in FRONT of the radiator, I no longer need the old...

    Hello Members! My 85 Alfa Spider Veloce has A/C but no belt running it. I think I'm having a hot start seems the spider will not crank - no clicking at all, after the car is hot. I examined the starter solenoid wires, which seem fine, and seemed to narrow the problem down to the...

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    Hi, My 1961 Giulietta Spider Normale seems to have sprung a leak at the base of the fan where it meets the water pump. The fan is very loose... it wiggles from side to side. Is there a fix for this? Or do I have to replace the water pump? Is a rebuild on the water pump a big job? Any...
  15. New Fan; Waste of Time?

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
