  4. 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...

    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...

    Hi all, First thing first thank you all to have created such a beautiful environment plenty of ideas and suggestions. It has been a bible to build up my GT 1750 now close to be converted in a TS one. I have contacted Sir. Jim Steck but albeit the emails I have sent, no replies (yet). So I am...

    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!

    Hi all, I've been dealing with this issue for a while, and now I finally have the time and funds to tackle this issue. Background: 1977 Alfetta Sport Sedan with a 1981 Spider motor swap after the original motor blew. After the swap (done by local reputable Alfa specialist) I was driving on a...
  10. 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...

    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...

    Hey guys! Recently finished restoring a 1986 Spider 2000 Veloce with my father and we are trying to get it running, but with no luck. The car was running before the project but it has been standing in the garage for about five years now. I have tried everything that has been suggested in...

    Hi, Is there anything specific to know about how to remove the steering column assembly from a 1993 164? Does it all just unbolt or is something special needed? Thanks, Richard
  16. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    This car has been extremely quirky starting a year ago. It would not start after being driven and turned off. Usually no problem starting cold, after overnight. -Julio, my mechanic and I replaced fuel pump relay, but the problem came back after about two weeks. -We swapped the battery and...

  18. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hey guys, just got back from traveling around and luckily (in this case at least) my Alfa died the night before I left, and not halfway through my trip. I was driving along and the lights started to dim and it started to run rough. Easy enough, change the alternator and recharge the battery...
  19. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My 1986 Spider worked great on Tuesday night, but on Wednesday morning, it cranked, but wouldn't start. I checked the fuel line (having replaced a fuel filter last year) and it's getting gas. there was voltage to the ignition coil, so I'm presuming the module is OK. The distributor and rotor...
