  1. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello All I am brand new to the forum. I have been following for a few discussions for a couple weeks now and decided it would be wise to join and share my experiences here. I bought a '74 Spider in pretty rough shape before Christmas and have been working to bring it back to life since. I...
  2. Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    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...
  3. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello everyone! I'm trying to diagnose a strange starter noise my 83 Spider started making within the past week. When we left for a week for vacation, it started fine although it took a little help from the throttle (bad aux. air valve, I know) and there was something that sounded like mild...
  4. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    1988 Spider. I have rewired the main fuel pump because there is no power getting there. The car runs now, but would like to finally fix things correctly. I have attached a pic of my rear shelf as it is now with colored arrows. I will explain what I have done and what my understanding is. White...
  5. Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    I am investigating my no-start issue again. I am going to check fuel pressure by installing an in-line gauge (need to know the operating range? -up to 60 PSI?- I found a gauge 0-15 PSI, but figured this was too low of a range, so I am driving down to Summit Racing (1 hr away) to find something I...
  6. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I was hoping to get some suggestions on where to start. I have a 79 spider that works most of the time. Last fall I was gettinf ready for Wheels of Italy and it began. When I turned the key there was nothing, no lights no clicks, just dead. Voltage at the battery was about 12 v. No votage...
  7. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, I recently purchased what seems to be an '83 Spider. The date inside the door frame says November of '82 but I'm pretty sure this is the '83 model. I have not seen an interior in worse condition, but that is not the point. First I need to get this car running. I have replaced the fuel pumps...
  8. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Greetings all, I am the fortunate new owner of a nicely restored '67 Duetto, which arrived by transport today. Yes, it was a sight unseen purchase but an inspector did find the car to be in good running order and I trust that the seller was honest in his declaration that it runs great and...
