know this topic has been touched on before but am at the stage of needing definitive answers before attempting the knock sensor replacement, which lie under the central V steel pipe.
Essentially, the long steel central cooling pipe, that runs between the V and into the thermostat housing...
Have muddled up two sets of 24v 3.0 164 camshafts, one set from an auto and one set from manual.
Is there any way to identify these from their numbers or design? Not every camshaft has a full part number on it.

Have a new main engine mount to put on the car and unsure how. Have heard partially lowering the front subframe while supporting the engine is the way to do it. Tried undoing the nut (engine load still on) on top of the mount and couldn't turn it.
Has anyone tried undoing one of these and...
I got a tip from a man in Malibu on Sunday when I was cruising around in my '79 Alfetta GT that there is a red 1983 GTV6 sitting at a scrapyard about an hour from me. Showed me pictures of it online to prove it. At the time he went to the yard and saw it a couple days earlier all that was...

hey everyone, after 200 thousand km my milanos 2.5l is shot. I would like to replace it with a 3.0l and rebuild it myself. This would be my first rebuild so if anyone has a 3.0l kicking around and are willing to let it go for a good price, let me know. pm me with details.

I'm not planning to do this on my 164 24v but am curious whether anyone else has. To be honest it could explain why after fitting my last...

Hello everyone, this is my first post on the Alfa forum. I finally decided to join after seeing how supportive everyone is. I was hoping to receive some feedback regarding what to look for when looking at used Milano/75 besides rust. I understand I may not be the first to post this so I do...
