  6. 164 fuel pump & tank connectors

    Hi, Hopefully my final post on this topic. Am about to remove the fuel tank on a 164 twinspark - rear subframe removed and swaybar lowered for clearance. Just not sure what pipes actually connect to the tank itself or how to undo them without causing damage. Not even sure if they all connect...

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    HI, Looking to remove the plastic fuel tank of a 1996 164 twinspark and wondering if can take it out without removing the rear sway bar - rear subframe would be removed first. Am I just being optimistic or is there a chance the tank could squeeze past the sway bar?

  9. fuel flap removal

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, trying to remove the fuel flap from a 1993 24V 164 3.0 and the simple question is: how? Have undone the grub screws top and bottom but the spring-loaded hinge refuses to budge - assuming it should. Noticed there is a shallow slot that aligns with the hinge and looks like it could be there...

  13. 79 spider engine cuts out

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Only seems to happen after hard acceleration. Engine will cut off, after coasting to a stop it will restart. Here is what I have tried. New fuel filters, plugs, plug wires, fuel lines. This all started after I had a fuel line leak, so new fuel lines first. I guess it could be a bad ground and I...

  18. DHLA 40 Problem

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Hi, I wonder if any technical gurus can help. I recently got some DHLA 40's for my 87 Spider S3 2000 Veloce. These carbs were off another 2000 Alfa engine so had the correct jetting. I initially installed these and noticed that the engine was bogging down and even dropping revs between 2 - 3k...
