I just received a pair of new front top strut bearings - were not cheap (60566146 / the other number don't have to hand). They look great but the bearings are really stiff - one too stiff to turn by hand without a tool. No signs of corrosion and the rubber looks amazing. Wondering if adding...
Have rebuilt my front struts and one side is fine, while one side is not - left item in the pics. You can see the spring pan has been tilted to one side, against the strut shaft.
The spring doesn't sit right, which I assume is what is making the rest of it not sit right - though can't nail...
In my Spider 1750 of 1971 I 've installed a new pair of normal springs bought in Alfa Classic of England and a new pair of shock absorbers. Although the car hits the bump stops frequently in a relative small bump in the track. Did anyone face a similar problem?? What solution...
I just finished a seat cover replacement on my 1974 Berlina, and I have most of two spare front seats left over.
I'd prefer not to ship the big parts, but if someone really needs them I have them.
If anybody needs any spare parts I have:
2 headrest adjusment rods - 1 needs to be...
Have been having a clonk from the front end of a 1995 24v 3.0 164, UK spec.
It mostly happened on steering inputs but not always.
No play in front suspension bushes and even changed the engine mounts - were shot anyway.
Think narrowed it down to the front strut lower bearing so took the...
What I don't understand is why the 164 3.0 12v front springs were not uprated to cope with the extra weight of the 3.0 24v engine. Maybe over the general weight of the car the extra 2 cams are not huge but is that right in terms of handling? The 164 24v's I've driven have been brilliant but...
What has been the collective experience with the Alfaholics Fast Handling Kit?
Alfaholics Montreal Fast Road Handling Kit
I think Don had installed it on his Montreal. Was curious if others have and if you feel it was worth it in terms of changing looks and handling.
After several question posts on this and lots of hours and tool testing, there does seem to be a way of removing these intact.
What has worked for me is 'cheese wire' - very thin (sub 1mm steel). Brilliant at cutting through the bonding glue. The breaking issue with this method is the...
Trying to reinstall my front coil spring (passenger side - have not yet taken apart driver's side so I have a full suspension reference). I bought external compressors and an internal one as well. Had to cut the threaded part of the internal on down to 150mm in length to get it to clear...
I am rebuilding the front suspension and am now at the point of replacing the lower A-Arm bushings. When I pulled off the dust caps, I found what looked like old grease. I am not sure this is an area that should be greased because it is a bushing....wondering if a previous owner thought it...
All, I am underway with my front end rebuilding to include:
1. New BMW 7 series 4-pot calipers
2. All new bushings
3. Replace brake lines
All the demo work is done and now I am ready to start swapping old for new.
My issue is on the brake lines. I am trying to replace the cracked rubber...
First of all, I'm quite new on this ALfaBB forum.
So Hi everybody, nice to meet you! ;)
Also my apologies if I sometimes wrongly manipulate the tool. Time will help. :)
My first question is about the front grill of the Giulia Super...
I've been told that the full 9-bar grill has been...
Hey if anyone is interested about protecting there front bumper with a skid plate set please reply to this thread or email me direct at [email protected] I fabricate the plates in house and have them on 3 8cs currently plus one spyder.
in my '74 Junior I have seats with an automatic seatbelt support protrouding from the "shoulder". The upholstery is black with horizontal stitching (see pic 1; sorry for the quality, as always). I think post-facelift, late S2s and non-QV S3s had these seats, while mine should feature...
I bought a complete set of bushings etc. to overhaul my Spider's front suspension and got new top arms. OK. When I wanted to remove the old ones, I was frankly astonished to find an adjustable top arm just on the left side. What the heck???
I realized earlier the lower wishbones were...
