  1. Mini Breakdown-Story Time!

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I thought I would share this story with others who can laugh with me on this one. I took my Spider up to the Caffeine and Octane car show at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta this weekend. Did fine for the hour drive up to the mall, no issues, beautiful morning chasing the sunrise on the interstate...

  4. 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...
  5. Montreal Starter Information

    Alfa Romeo Montreal
    All, Getting very close to (finally) putting the motor back in the Montreal. I now want to install the starter on the engine and, for the life of me, cannot figure out the mounting. I bought the Monty with the engine taken out and apart and cannot find any schematic from the parts diagrams or...
  6. 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...

  8. Engine catches too fast when starting?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Now, I love instant gratification but.. I can hear what sounds like the starter catching on the running engine. I just installed a euro intake cam and made sure cam timing was set properly (102). I set the engine timing to 37 degrees at 5000 RPM using an advance timing light. Now the engine...
  9. Strange starter noise and no start

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello everyone! I'm trying to diagnose a strange starter noise my 83 Spider started making within the past week. When we left for a week for vacation, it started fine although it took a little help from the throttle (bad aux. air valve, I know) and there was something that sounded like mild...

    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...

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    Hi Spider 1974 Just fitted a recon starter from centerline. Worked fine for a month. Tried to start car this evening and starter did a couple of reluctant turns, then ceased to respond at all, no click, nothing. Got out to take a look and there was a fine plume of smoke coming from the region of...
  15. Bypassing Starter Switch

    Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    Several people on here have recommended that I try and bypass the ignition switch to determine if it is the culprit for my Milano's issues starting. I'm ready to go ahead and do this, but I'm having trouble finding anything more than vague instructions on how to do this. I've found the junction...
  16. Milano Won't Start

    Milano/75 (1985-1993)
    Hello folks, Went out to my Milano tonight to go run some errands and it wouldn't start; it ran perfectly fine as of yesterday. I have full power to everything in the interior (headlights, christmas tree, interior lights), but it won't even attempt to turn over. Starter isn't clicking, either...

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    I'm in a tangle over starters. Had to replace the original starter in this car, 1974 spider, spica to weber conversion. Guy in auto electric shop confident that a new starter, Bosch SR484X was the exact replacement and sold it to me, said the original was too old to recondition. I put the new...

I noticed that there was...

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I recently replaced my starter for the second time. Before replacing it, the starter would turn but grind (the bell housing had broken). Post replacement the starter will not turn. I believe i have it wired correctly, my dash and fuel pump are both getting power, but the starter will not turn. I...

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    85 spider Iam doing a revival on and since I had the intake off and old motor mount out thought it would be a fine time to have the starter gone thru-only one bolt holding it in lucky it is the sholder bolt but the top and bottom ones are missing does anyone happen to know what size bolts I...
