Hi, I have a 3 litre v6 12 valve engine and gearbox in my kitcar. I stripped it down and during the rebuild lost some gear linkages, can anyone help show me which parts i need to order please?
Primary missing piece is the lever between the rod and the other shifter lever with the ball socket. Pics are below, as well as parts diagram. You're also missing the large plastic cover and two small metal clips that secure the cover to the trans case. Make sure you have both bronze bushings in place, on either side of the rod. The rubber cap and accordion boot on either side of the rod are NLA and are very hard to find in either good used or new variety, but those missing bits certainly won't keep the car from being 100% usable. Not sure what you're doing for shift linkage at the reaction bushing side of things, or for the shifter bushing fork where the shift lever connects to the rod?
Let me know if you cannot locate these items. I would be glad to sell you these items. I have some good used shift rods, but not the rubber boots, unfortunately. I have a matched set of the number 3 and number 5 items that will work together. Just send me a PM and we can converse there.
Would anyone have or know of a good alternative for the rubber bellows for 164-S shift seal? Mine is hard and broken into three discs as shown. Mark
It is good to see Charles still checks in from time to time. He could use another 164 before the values really start to sky rocket, or not. Happy to vouch for him as well. He helped with several parts for my 164-S.
What did you do Alfa [and 164] related today?
I had a slow to go Alfa day today.
First off I worked on setting up my wife's future garden plot permiters with 4x4 eight foot posts. I tilled up part of the area yesterday with my neighbor's roto-tiller. I have to get more soil and compost...
Does anyone have any 164S that they have as a donor car for parts ? I need a partial "floor pan" approx. 1/2 way back the rear door (seam to seam) and back to approx. 1/2 into the spare tire cut out. we are doing a rust assessment now and will know more soon BUT putting out some feelers...
First off I apologize I have no photos. I'll try to describe the processes well enough to figure out without visuals.
I've been in isolation for more than a week and decided I'd address some electrical niggles on the 164. Chief among these was slow, sticky windows. Painfully slow in cold...
I bought a 164 LS that the previous owner said developed some engine noise. In an effort to not cause anymore damage I want to check the timing. Is there a way to check the timing on the 24 valve engines without removing the valve covers?
