  1. Melted part inside Carburator of 1973 Veloce

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello, We have a 1973Veloce. The carburator was replaced about 11/2 years ago by a mechanic who is supposed to be expert in vintage Alfa. Suddenly, the car didn't start. I hauled the car to my mechanic and found that a part melted inside the carburator and there is serious damaged caused. It is...
  2. Interest in modern F.I. conv. adapter/kit?

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    While I personally do not like F.I. there is no reason for me not to feed the appetite of those who embrace it. If it's "Ride the wave or be inundated by it", I choose the ride. :wink2: I've been looking for items to make on my just acquired Fadal VMC. Need not be huge volume but does need to...
  3. For Sale COMPLETE SPICA system, '74 Spider!

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    I do mean complete. From the fuel pump and filter to the air-box and all that you want in between. If I use this '74 Spider engine it will be on Webers. Engine is running now so I know the SPICA is working well. Do not want to break up the set, I know that once the pump is sold the rest would...
  4. Alfetta GT 2.0 SPICA pump

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Me and my friend are working on getting my grandpa's Alfetta back on the road after sitting for 10+ years. We already cleaned out the fuel lines and injectors. Would I need to rebuild the SPICA pump or what? And where can I get a rebuild kit for it? We already drained the gas tank and cleaned it...
  5. Tell me more about the '80 - '81 Spiders

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Could some of you tell me about the '80 - '81 spiders? I understand that the fuel injection is horrible but other than the FI, why do these cars get such a bad rap? (Friends don't let friends buy "80-"81 Spiders) I am looking for a cheap toy to enjoy for a while to replace the GTV6 that the...
  6. More power from old spider...

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I just bought a 76 spider. My engine is a monument to bad pollution controls and poor engineering choices Item 1. The air pump is a noisy, rather heavy contraption that does little. Since there is no catolitic converter the added air is not burning more pollutants. What it is doing is making...
  7. Smog Check Failure on GTV6

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Our 1982 GTV6 did not pass the smog check today. The pretest showed the HC at 300 ppm at idle and the O2 at 7 ppm. The 2500 RPM levels were fine. The car was warmed up and running well. The mechanic thought that it might be running too rich. Is there any way to adjust fuel delivery on the...
  8. Wanted Spica fi throttle plates

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    I would like to see what Spica fuel injection plates are selling for. You know the part that is discarded when you use a weber mod kit. I understand that 1750 and 2000 are the same. I am designing something and would possibly need three sets.
  9. Megasquirt VS Gotech and others

    Engine Management
    I have a GTV6 with a '91 12V 164 3.0L engine and have decided to stop trying to get the original motronic system working as the PO damaged the harness and it has other problems as well. Anyway, I have heard about aftermarket fuel injection systems such as Megasquirt, Gotech, Spitronics, &...
  10. Bosch Motronic 4.1 injection system

    Boxer Engined Alfa Romeos
    Hey guys, just wondering how much a complete Motronic 4.1 system would be worth? It came off a 1990 1.7 16V, and everything was working perfectly as far as I could tell, and I've labelled every connection. I'm not actually offering to sell it as yet because I'm planning to put the 16v motor...
  11. 86 Spider Engine upgrade

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I'm a newbie here, so forgive me if I missed anything in my searches of previous posts. I recently acquired a 1986 Spider Veloce with 39K miles in great shape. The engine is all stock and well maintained. Modifications by previous owner include bolt-on frame stiffener, racing suspension...

    HI, 1991 spider automatic I am having difficulty with a grounding issue, specifically with the fuel system and injection ( intermittent stalling). any illustration showing where the ground/grounding straps are located? Thanks
  13. Engine idle

    GT (1963-1977)
    I would appreciate any feedback. Recently picked up my car (1971 GTV) from shop after having head done. Going in I explained that the injection system was out of wack - burning rich, not idling right, etc. Upon putting everything back together he adjusted the injection. While it runs much...

    Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    From my '71 Berlina. Converted the car to carbs and held on to the parts when I made the change to a 2 litre motor.. The pump and parts were in very good working condition when removed. $300 plus shipping takes it all.
  15. Alfa fuel injection

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    I am building a 1973 GTV 2000 supercharged and fuel injected race car. Having bought aftermarket injectors, I find that they use a clip arrangement to secure the fuel line to the injector. I am using the head and fuel system from a 1983 Alfa 159, (Bosch L-Jetronic?) and that uses a hose and...
  16. Please help! Misfiring!

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Aloha all from Hawaii! I recently purchased a 1985 Spider Graduate to restore as a gift and now it's misfiring on the two cylinders closest to the firewall. Misfiring is constant and occurs at all rpms, although occasionally on the road it will stop briefly (one to two seconds). I know all...
