fuel pump

  1. Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    I recently bought a 1974 Spider that appears to be a California car so everything is original including the grill overider and all of the fuel injection. I got the car after someone I knew was given the car and got frustrated that he couldn't get it started. I got it started with a fresh set of...

    Hey guys I have an ‘87 Alfa Romeo Milano gold 2.5L v6, i need to know where the fuel pump relay is at to determine whether or not it’s gone bad. I tested the pump and it’s still good but it’s not getting power. So if I can test the relay I can knockout another determining factor of why my pump...
  3. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I have an 86 spider and the last few times I went to start it, it wouldn't start until gave it a little gas. Started it this morning and had to give it gas. But after it started the fuel hose burst right where it connects to the rear fuel filter. I got a bucket under the car and it drained out...

  5. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello, I'm trying to solve the hard starting issue. It only occurs on the first start of the day. Temperatures are mild, 50's and 60's Fahrenheit. It seems to be not getting fuel to the engine unless I keep pressing the accelerator and have the key turned on continuously for a very long time...

    Hi everyone, first time posting here. I love the community here, I appreciate all your contributions. I have learned a ton, so thank you! But now it’s my turn to post because I’m officially stumped. I finally got my 1977 Alfetta Sedan up and running. Drove it around for a few days - such a...
  7. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I've been having cold idle problems. Runs rough and stalls for the first 5 minutes the car is on. ('85 Spider) I was going through the troubleshooting (hpsimotorsports.com/l-jetronic--spider-) I pulled the CTS and TTS and tested both cold and hot. They both work within the proper limits. I...
  8. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I'm installing a new in-tank fuel pump. When I pulled the existing pump out, I noticed that the sender float was jammed into the fuel filter baggie. The way the sender had been installed, the orientations of the pieces (and how they probably interfered with one another) went a long way toward...
  9. Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Hello, I'm trying to get my 81 Spider (Dual Solex Carbs C40 ADDHE) started for the year and have some questions about the fuel system of the car: 1) I've measured the flow rate of the fuel going into the carbs to be about 0.1L/min per carb. This seems a bit low, considering that there's two...

    All - Thank you for the help on the center console! Hoping the community can help me diagnose problems starting my 1972 GTV w/SPICA. Here's a link to a video which shows you the start procedure I go thru to get it running. Once the car is warm - turns over very easily. but when cold -...

    77 alfa with original pump and SPICA. Amazingly the car sat for a couple decades before I purchased and the pump still worked great... til last week. Even though the whole fuel system has been gone through and cleaned, I think age just caught up with it. Now I figure I need to change over to the...

    Started getting my hands into a 77 Spider (SPICA) I found. Had sat for about 15 years. Previous owner was going to restore and then got sick and couldn't. He did get the tank cleaned and coated, lines and filter replaced. However he never got it running well. I started with basic broken things...
  15. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I just got this 1978 Alfa Romeo Spider and I changed the fuel pump and now I see that the 3 port fuel pump doesn't work. Power goes to the pump but nothing. Is there a way I can fix the pump? Please Help. Thank you.
  16. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    is this wire replaceable or do i need a new float assembly? in replacing my fuel tank, I was inspecting my in tank filter which I found floating in the tank. When I fished it out, it was torn, but very clean. I then noticed the break on this thin film wire looking thing. Thoughts? Options?

There is a rebuilder (Porsche rebuilder, same pumps on many 911 years) that can rebuild the original pumps for those that want more originality. Pic of pumps...

    BBers, As I continue the long process of restoring my 72 Montreal, I am now investigating fuel pump options. From what I have discovered so far: 1. I can buy the rebuild kits from Giorgio. Like dealing with him on previous purchases. 2. Bruce's book talks bout a single Walbro GSL392 fuel...
