  2. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello, Doing a bit of work in the engine bay on my '81 Spider. One of the projects is installing a European spec airbox for my carbs. Before purchasing the airbox, I noticed that the electronic ignition unit looks to be in the way of the airbox's intake (see pic #1). I would like to relocate...
  3. Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hey all, Hoping to get some advice on a fairly aggressive vibration my GTV6 has just picked up. The car begins to vibrate when under load, the vibration then seems to flatten out as the revs climb. Shift into the next gear and the vibration comes back. If I take my foot off the gas the...
  4. Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    Hi All; I've owned alfas since 1987 and overall it has been a good experience. I currently own 5 built from 1960 to 2018. All have their own flair and all have been reliable given their age. Recently, however, a number of them are developing issues all at the same time. I thought I would...

  8. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Good evening everyone! My car has developed a mild gremlin. Yesterday I went to start the car, and something under the dash started buzzing and the starter wouldn't engage. I checked battery voltage, 13v. Gave it another crank, same buzzing but after turning the key and holding it for a few...
  9. Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    Has anyone had any experience with the electronic distributor 22-5888 from Vick Auto? My 1987 Spider has ignition issues that I can't figure out. Seems like a logical choice. They sell for $150 which is half of what similar distributors sell for...

    Can someone tell me how to remove the ignition switch? I removed the bottom plastic shroud, but cant seem to remove the top piece? I think the security bolt is hidden under there.. Or, is it better to hire a locksmith to work on it in place.. Thanks!

  14. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My 1992 Spider has woven a web of intrigue - it eats distributor caps! It doesn't eat the whole distributor cap, instead is bakes the plastic next to the terminals and, once well done, eats holes next to the spark plug terminals. The first picture is the distributor cap that came with the car...
  15. Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    pics: can't add pics yet because of spam rules, thanks alfabb. but if you go to imgur, and then add "a/dquAz" to the link, you will see the pictures. As you probably gathered from the title, my poor spider has some serious ignition problems. It wouldn't start for a few months, then only if I...

    Hello Members, This is my first post here. So.. Recently got a 155 2.0 8 valve car. The car is in ok shape, no mechanical problems, a bit used but it is ok with the age it has. The large ignition coil (red color) has been disconnected by the previous owner and the car runs only on 4 spark...
