  1. Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Hi, It’s been a while since the last time I was on this forum… I rebuilt my 1973 (well, at least the body is from 1973) alfa GTV 2000 engine (and all the rest indeed) and now she’s on the road! This started as a small leak from the gearbox I wanted to fix, and when I removed it I noticed the...
  2. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    A few years back I purchased a 87 Spider in Canada with a salvage title. The car had been purchased and brought over from Pennsylvania about 15 years prior and sat. I managed to work on the mechanicals and now am turning to the body to cut out and remove rust but before I go any further I found...
  3. Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Hello All, Money IS an object and I want to spend it wisely on renewing the most important elements of a 100K mile old rebuild I did to my stock Giulia Spider Veloce in 1975. It is still running perfectly and not yet smoking, but I have in the past spun a rod bearing on a different car's 1750...
  4. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, After having my column switch replaced with a used part on my 1991, it is now only working on high beam setting. I have another used part that I purchased from Ebay. Can anybody recommend a shop to rebuild the switch before I have it installed? I want to make certain it will work properly...

  6. 164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Opened a 1995 164 twinspark AFM, planning to reposition the carbon track, and now need to refix the plastic top. How? It was originally bonded on with a rubber compound and had planned to do the same but surely it would need to be one that doesn't give off volatile fumes when curing? Once...

    I got it all disconnected and ready to rebuild but I don't see a cir-clip on the end. Do I have to separate the spring and connecting arm off the body and it is actually inside?
  8. Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    It seems the bearings in my distributor have gone bad. My distributor makes quite the racket while the engine is running. I have a second distributor, but it seems it also has bad bearings. There's a lot of play in the shaft and spinning it by hand yields noise, so I can only imagine it would...
  9. Product/Vendor Reviews
    All, I had the pleasure of recently doing business with Larry at APE for a rebuild job on the Burman steering box for my Montreal. Larry not only quoted a fair price, he had the box back to me quickly. While I have bought a handful of parts from APE over the years, this was my first purchase...

    IRONBLOCK turned me on to White Post Restorations to have the clutch m/c rebuilt in my Montreal. They did an amazing job. First of all the unstuck the piston and then cleaned the m/c thoroughly. The put in a brass sleeve so the m/c piston will be very unlikely to be stuck again in the future...

    For sale is my 1987 Spider that I started restoring to a weekend racer type project (before kids) and abandoned soon after I spent over $3k on an engine rebuild. Body is straight and rust free.

    Hi I'm trying to dismantle an ATE brake master cylinder and getting no where. I've dismantled the "No-Name" master cylinders before and never had a problem, but the ATE ones won't budge. I've being able to remove the snap ring, the metal washer under the snap ring, and the first big seal. The...

  15. GT (1963-1977)
    Hello Alfisti, I finally took the decision to rebuild my GTV's Bosch distributor that has excessive play on the shaft and I thought to ask a few questions before starting with this project! Has anyone ever tried to fit new bushings in such a distributor (it's the one with a serial number...

    Thanks in part to Gordon Raymond, who helped me get the brass throttle shaft of one Weber straight again, my are ready to install! Now I just have to wait until the temperature goes above 0F... here in Minneapolis. Installing new throttle return springs made all the difference in how the...
  18. GT (1963-1977)
    Hi, I have a 67 GTV with the Veglia gauges, and pulled them out today to sort our a couple of issues. 1. Tacho The needle fell off 6 months ago, and given the car is up on jack stands at the moment, I figured I would take it apart to fix it... After dropping it out of the car I noticed that...

    Hi gang My golden spider finally hit oil! Since I've owned her, she has on occasion blown a little oil and leaked some out the front, it's an Alfa after all. A few months back, she really started smoking. Most noticeable on lets say a beer run, engine gets warmed up driving to store, park...
