does anyone have a spare valve cover capscrew laying around? Its an M7 thread and I think by 70mm long --for 164? TIA
You need a 14419124 for a 24v which is longer than for a 12v engine 15247824.does anyone have a spare valve cover capscrew laying around? Its an M7 thread and I think by 70mm long --for 164? TIA
I'll see if I have one.You need a 14419124 for a 24v which is longer than for a 12v engine 15247824.
According to Alfa parts CD it calls for 22 of them 14419124 on a 24v and they are listed as a M7x38
If M7x38 is correct match, test the short top bolt holding throttle body to intake and see if it is a match I may have a spare one of those.
Mailed you a M7x40 allen head bolt today.the thread length is 40 mm roughly, with the cap head OAL ~ 45mm M7
If you have a M7 x 40 I think that will work---- and the head size is 6mm IIRC on both the valve cover and the throttle body to plenum --If I need to shave a mm or 2 off thats no problem
PS throtlle body to plenum on 24V has two sizes, short and long ! I think they prob differ by 10mm, so I would guess that same 40 and 50 mm are used 24V
CONFIRMED - I just measured the OAL and thread lengths
24V has both 40 and 50 mm thread length
why oh why did alfa choose to use M7?
