    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    OK, so I've already found my rear fuel pump needs replaced on my 73' Spica GTV. However, centerline kicked my order out within a couple hours stating the pump they sell is out of stock. I really need to get this car running this week so I can begin the tear down to bare metal. Does anyone know a...
  2. Fuel pumps dammit

    GT (1963-1977)
    So as stated in my restoration thread, found out my fuel pump (in the rear) is bad. So does anyone have the bosche OE part number for the fuel pump to cross reference? Or at least know the GPH rating for a US spec Spica GTV pump? I’m sure I can get a decent aftermarket one quickly but don’t want...
  3. 1986 GTV-6 Smells Like Gas...sometimes

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hello, Have a 60k mile GTV-6, and I recently found a place with ethanol-free fuel so tanked up! But in doing so, remembered that if the car has --more than half a tank or so-- it REEKS of fuel. After (rolling the windows down...) and getting some miles on it and the tank a lot lower, the smell...

    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...

    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...

  11. 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...
  12. 164 plastic tank removal with sway bar in place

    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?

  14. 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...

  18. 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...
