    Hello Rebuilding my 1600 on my Super. Should the rear crank seal be flush? It appears the old one was not by examining the coloring? (see pic below) I did put the oil slinger in behind regards Daron

    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.

A lot of Volvos of the era used these too and their owners are also searching for them - so what is going on? Where are these elusive...

  8. Making a sick gtv6 healthy again...on a budget.

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Hello everyone, let me start out by saying that I've laid dormant for a while, because of a move to Florida, and back out to California again, a motorcycle accident, and some good old fashioned procrastination - but it's good to be back. Anyway, I have a '86 GTV6 from my father that has sat...
