  1. Alfa Romeo Parts For Sale & Wanted
    Hey all, I am posting this for a friend. He has a 78' Spider, the SPICA has begun to run rich and leak gas into the oil. Due to the very long wait period for Wes and his price increase, we wanted to see if anyone had a proven good SPICA pump or some parts to convert the car to carbs. For the...
  2. Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    I'm looking for some guidance on what I might have missed when setting up the new distributor to make the car shake at idle, sound like an subaru (unequeal pulses) and not want to rev. The car is a 1971 spider with spica. My marerlli plex recently died and left me in need of a tow, got it...
  3. Links to Alfas for sale elsewhere
    Not mine. 220K spent in restoration. Seller's way upside down in this one. Tons of receipts for expensive work. It'll probably end RNM in this bad economy. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-alfa-romeo-gtv-2000-39/#comments-anchor
  4. Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, Apologies in advance for the long post, but I am hoping that this forum can help me resolve an issue with tuning the Spica pump on my 1972 Montreal. Quick introduction and background: I've owned this Montreal since 1989. I bought it with the help of student loans from my friend and his...
  5. New Members Introductions - Please Read
    Hey guys, Glad to be among you all and to officially be an Alfisti, I guess! I found somebody in my area (Central AL) selling an old Alfa sedan as a parts car from 1980 for a song. I showed up, told him the car was a 1979, and bought it the same day. The car seems to be exceptionally complete...
  6. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I have a 1974 Spider w/SPICA Injection. I am looking for a new fuel (or lightly used) sending unit, but I am looking for the correct unit. I don't want a sender for a later Bosch car that I need to plug off a pick up tube. Anyone have one or know where I can get one?

  9. GT (1963-1977)
    Alright gentlemen (and ladies). Let’s have this discussion for the thousandth time. The 73’ is getting a full nuts and bolts restoration. Won’t be a piece that isn’t touched. That being said I’ve yet to make a solid decision on Spica Vs Webers (probably 45’s). The car is not going for concours...

  11. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello All I have a 1979 spider with spica fuel injection. Once the car has been driven for about 1/2 an hour the inline fuel pump (at the right rear near the frame rails) goes from the normal reassuring whir to a louder more of a metal on metal sound, but still spinning. My guess is this baby...
  12. Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    I recently bought a 1974 Spider that appears to be a California car so everything is original including the grill overider and all of the fuel injection. I got the car after someone I knew was given the car and got frustrated that he couldn't get it started. I got it started with a fresh set of...

    I have a completely stock 1971 S2 spider 1750 spica injected. I'm looking to give it a little more top end, some people say go with euro cams for a decent butt dyno increase and I see Centerline has a 10.5mm cam they are calling euro plus. My question is this: Will anything other than cam...

    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...
  17. Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    I am rebuilding my cylinder head and looking for suggestions about the cams and valve clearances for a street car. It has been daily driver for 35 years and still going strong! If I say how many miles are on it no one will believe me. I am lucky enough to live close to APE and Larry Dickman has...

  19. Carburetors, Fuel Injection & Air Intake
    Hi there, New to Alfas and Spica with a rescue 1978 sport sedan. On cold start the engine lights off easily, and if I drive off, the idle stays high at 200-2300 rpms even at stop signs. Normal? Its basically replicating a choke? Now if I start the car and don't drive it, the idle stays...
  20. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, '74 spider, 100K miles, SPICA fueled 2000 that blows smoke and leaks oil. It's a tired motor with good spark. Overall it runs well. Always starts on the second or 3rd crank, never misses a beat, sans the occasional backfire. I put about 80 miles on it over the weekend, had zero issues...
