  2. 164 front end clonk

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, 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...

  4. 164 3.0 front spring and roll

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, 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...

    Friends, 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. Thanks, JP
  7. 164 screen removal - front and back

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, 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...
  8. Montreal Front Coil Spring Install

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, 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...
  9. Montreal Front Suspension Rebuild - Lower A-Arm

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, 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...

  13. Seat frames different in early and late S2?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Greetings, 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...
  14. Adjustable top arm, what the heck?

    Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Wheels & Tires
    Greetings, 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...
