If the disk were too thick it would not RELEASE. It would ne locked in the Engaged situation.
The controling measurement is the amout of return to clear the front disk which will clear about 8.5mm
The problem sounds more like a clutch release issue involving the slave cyl & rod. These take a different length (shorter) rod & if you bought a replacement it most likely is a generic Milano one.
As well the twin disk fits the input shafts only on the GTV6`s that they came on. Spline size & count is the same but splines are longer & cut through on the rear. Other input shafts Alfetta, Milano etc will cause the outer disk hub to bind on the rear of the splines.
Actually the clutch shop my mechanic sent it to (not the guys who rebuilt it originally) say, yes it is too thick. typical 4mm disc plus thickness of metal mounting suface. They say they have to re machine the metal surfaces or something like that (I didn't speak directly to them) and it will be the same price as a total rebuild. So now I have two dual disc setups that need rebuilding. Whats a guy to do? Well I'm having a Milano single disc clutch relined and will put the $300 savings into something else.
Finally, finally made its way to my home. I purchased this GTV6 from a buddy last year, but the impetus to get it home really didn't happen until he decided to move.
The car has been sitting for about 3 years. We resisted the natural inclination to start it to help get it on the trailer...
Hello All - I'm going to start the slow and hopefully steady log of my 76 GT project. Bought the car a few months ago from southern Oregon. My goal is to update and modernize it - sorry, purists, but it won't be a restore-to-original. As much as possible, i'm going to envision what an Alfetta...
Just saw this was posted: 1978 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT | eBay
Does anyone know this car? Looks "for sale" perfect; nice wheels. Thought something this nice would have been in these circles.
I have been in the market for an Alfetta to pair with my GTV6 and this is def. at the top end it seems.
Has anyone ever used worlduph.com for replacing their interior vinyl/ leather/ carpet? I am in need of complete restoration services and they seem to be the only option. Does anyone have other options? Thank you! David
I've got a '79 Alfetta GT, USA version, a.k.a. Sprint Veloce. I removed most of the factory air conditioning system right after buying the car several years ago, but am just now getting around to removing the A/C condensor. The car tends to overheat in stop-and-go traffic during the hotter...
