  1. Leaking Webers

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hey guys, I have been having some issues trying to tune my dual webers. I recently replaced my head gasket, now I am tuning the fuel system. Before I had to replace the head gasket, the carbs were leaking a bit of fuel out. Now, they are much worse. Ive taken them off and synced the throttle...
  2. door leaks

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, have been studying water ingress on an Alfa 164 for some time now. Currently looking at wet floorpans and the potential to ruin the front jacking points from the inside. Have also been doing this by endoscopic views inside the sills, via drilling holes but to begin with here is a basic, with...
  3. fuel line leak

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I am going to try my best to describe my problem. My 79 spider developed a fuel leak, the leak is in the very short section that has 2 bends in the line. It looks to be a very easy job to replace this section, but as often is the case, with me a job that appears easy turns out to be not so. It...
  4. Gearbox: I did something good and I don't know what

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I read this post http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/spider-1966-up/264873-leaking-fluid-under-engine-87-spider.html and recognized it as the exact leak that I had under my car. Fearful of my ability to reassemble, I dove into the repair. Yeah, I am the guy who punctured my new oil filter and...
  5. High Idle (possible leak?)

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I just replaced my motor mounts and now appear to have a very high idle speed after doing the passenger's side. I followed the excellent advice on this forum and removed the intake manifold to get access to it (including removing the throttle body from the manifold and attached sensors), five...

  7. Mystery Oil Pooling Near Distributor (not distributor) - Pics Included

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    :confused: Okay Friends, So, as you know, I replaced distributor to electronic distributor (runs great) but since I cleaned all the engine bay and surrounding areas I noticed that after just one victory lap around the block there was a significant amount of oil pooled near the distributor. The...
  8. head gasket leak from front of engine

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Hi Looking for some advice. There is a rather small oil leak from the head gasket at the front of the engine in my 74 spider. Its running down onto the top of the water pump. I see that there are two bolts compressing the front part of the gasket, on either side of the block at the front. Do...
  9. head gasket 1974 spider

    Engine Management
    Hi, I had the engine rebuilt a couple of years ago, and there are now two small oil leaks from the head gasket down the side of the block #1 by the rear end of the exhaust headers and #2 at the front of the engine on the passenger side above the water pump. Not much of a leak, but they are...
  10. Stripped threads on thermostat bleed hole

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    A few days ago I was tightening the air bleed bolt on the thermostat housing just a little bit more to stop leaking and... stripped the threads! I needed the car right then so I just screwed on a slightly wider M10 bolt in the hole (tapped itself) and that kept it from leaking Considered...
  11. Leaking Spider Top

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi there, I am looking for some advice on water entering the car from the front top of the driver's door. I have a 1988 Spider with a newish top and no tears at all. When driving under the rain, after a while the top inner lip that makes contact with the glass starts dripping (see attached...
  12. Water pump tach drive oil leak

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello Everyone, So last weekend I took out my seized water pump and put in a refurbished water pump that I bought at Kragen. After about 15 minutes, I noticed that oil was leaking from the mech tach drive, so I ordered a new rubber seal for inside tach drive and that didn't solve anything...
  13. Leaking Block

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I've enjoyed two days of driving since replacing my fuel pump. Next issue. I got underneath the car to identify the source of a leak. Initially, I thought that it was the oil-pan gasket, but it turns out that the leak was higher up and dripping on to the pan. I determined that it was leaking...
  14. repairing gas tank leak

    Car Restoration
    Good afternoon I think I might have a gas tank leak in 1974 spider (SPICA to Weber conversion, fuel outlet from bottom of tank), strong smell of gas in the trunk. Seems to localize to the outer border of the gas tank under the gas condensation canister. The edge of the tank-well here is full of...
  15. Wobbly Fan on a 61 Giulietta

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    Hi, My 1961 Giulietta Spider Normale seems to have sprung a leak at the base of the fan where it meets the water pump. The fan is very loose... it wiggles from side to side. Is there a fix for this? Or do I have to replace the water pump? Is a rebuild on the water pump a big job? Any...
