  1. Montreal Starter Solenoid Wiring Question

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    BBers, As many know, I bought my Montreal with the engine bay in pieces and have been trying to put back the jigsaw puzzle without a finished reference. I do have a lot of good reference pictures for where things go in the engine bay, but no detailed pic of the starter solenoid wiring...
  2. solenoid inactive - how hard wire it?

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    Hi, Helping a friend with his 1993 164 twinspark. It seems to have some dodgy wiring on what looks like a 3rd party alarm system, where some wires look to be missing from a relay in the boot. It worked fine until he removed the battery to charge it but the wires must have been loose as after...
  3. Buzzing from starter won't turn over

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Well I was working on my 77 spider wiring a radio and now somehow the car won't turnover. Never had a starting problem before. Battery is charged fully and all lights and gauges work. There is a new buzzing sound from under the bonnet with the key in the on position. Any ideas from someone who...

I believe i have it wired correctly, my dash and fuel pump are both getting power, but the starter will not turn. I...

  7. Spica de-cel fuel cut-off solenoid tool

    Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    My 1978 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce was running too rich since I bought it a couple of years ago. I studied how to tune the Spica fuel pump from usual sources (Pat Braden's Bible, Wes-Ingram manual, and other docs sourced from this forum). Finally, I decided to put hands on the pump. I...

    Hi there, First post here, wanted to test you guys straight away :D I have 1978 series 1 Alfetta GTV, 2 liter with (two double) Dell'Orto carburettors. Unfortunately the Dell'ortos are shot, but since my parts car has some two pretty good (double) Solex carburettors, I figured to use those...
