Hello to all!! I'm having a heck of a time tracking down a manual transmission for a 1994 164 LS!!! I'm looking at buying a 164 with a totalled tranny...But, i cant seem to find a transmission for it!
Any ideas or transmissions out there?
It looks like you're new to this forum. It might help for this post and future posts that you put your location or general area in your signature or profile. I'm not talking about your exact street address, but more like your general area.Thanks guys!
-It sounds like the sycros are seized up and the diff. pin fired through the tranny.
-I'm looking to buy this car. I havent invested yet...
Stu, how handy are you with working on cars? You might be better off finding a 164 that is already road-ready and semi-reliable...Yes thanks so much! I'll make some calls on monday.
Do you guys have any idea if anyone reconditions them in the US? I would love to get one with new guts!
Thanks Sean! I really appreciate it! I emailed APE and hope to get a response on Monday. One of the bad things (along with a laundry list of others) about living in Minnesota is shipping costs. But that just comes with a car guys territory...I guess.
Stu,Very, I grew up in an Alfa family. I've owned everything from a 74 GTV 2000 to a Mercury Sable wagon with a 3-series and a STI somewhere in the mix.
This 164 is a gem though, I would hate to pass it up. Its been owned locally for 9 years and only has 80,000 miles on it. The interior, body, and motor all are on the up and up. I plan to use it as a daily driver, with room for guests.
I've dealt with APE several times over the years and have always gotten good stuff from them. I thought they didn't do email. Suggest you call them and leave a message. Call back the next day if you don't hear back from them.Thanks Sean! I really appreciate it! I emailed APE and hope to get a response on Monday.
