Hello! I have a 91 alfa 164 S that I have some concerns about. Recently I have encountered troubles with my clutch which I have diagnosed with a leaky master cylinder. I have been reading through my manual and other forums and I seem to have a difficult replacement on my hands(location wise)...
I've scoured all (most) of the spider top replacement threads and have decided to try the install myself. I'm planning on going with a Robbins brand cloth top. The Electron Brand is also tempting but expensive.
My question is do I want padded quarters? What are their advantages?
I've been having trouble attaching my gear lever gaitor

I have an automatic 1991 spider and managed to snap the plastic tip at the end of the dipstick (why alfa decided it was a good idea to use a plastic tip is beyond me) and can no longer check my transmission fluid. Would really love to drive my alfa comfortably again haha.
I'm looking for some advice. After sitting for 7 yrs, my 76 spider is about to hit the road after 8 weeks of serious reconditioning. I had it out for a test drive after a fill up and immediately noticed the smell of fuel. Sure enough, gas tank was leaking and as it has already been...
Would somebody be so kind as to measure the exterior dimensions of the interior lights of either a GTV6 or and Alfetta (non sedan)? I am going to design a nice set of lamp assemblies and have them 3d printed in tough, modern plastic and wire them up with some soft LEDs.
If anybody else is...
Last night, my 1986 spider threw the belt and the cooling fan disintegrated. I need to replace it and am wondering two things:
1. Can I replace the existing cooling fan (and shroud) without removing the radiator?
2. if I put an electrical fan in FRONT of the radiator, I no longer need the old...
I recently got my Alfa started up for the first time in a few months and in the maiden voyage around the block lost a well worn v-belt. I was wondering if there was any standard procedure to replace it. Upon inspection I've found that there is not enough clearance between an element...
So my very young Spider 1991 with only 40k miles has a noisey thrust bearing. I'm handy but have not replaced a clutch since helping my dad at the age of 14 :)
I have a couple of questions:
I don't have a lift, so I'll be working under the car with tall axle stands, and a tranny lift.
Got evaporator loose, false firewall out and wiper motor arms/motor out too but having trouble getting the blower motor section to come away from the heater matrix/core section.
Have seen there are two lower clips, one either side of heater section but is there anything else...
Due to recent hail storms, and an unexpected tornado "watch" in my home state of Texas.. My poor Milano has suer com to massive amounts of hail damage.
Some replacements I need are:
-Roof (perf. sun roof :D)
-Possible some side panels
Pictures to come, I'm not worried about...
Yep, I managed to lose my last key for the 1991 164L. I'm looking for suggestions for how to go about:
1. Getting a new key made to fit the current ignition and doors
2. Getting a replacement set of ignition and door modules.
Has anyone else had this experience?
Any information would be...
