I'm currently rebuilding my 164S engine. I was hoping someone would know of a place to get new parts for the engine. New bearings, seals, water pump, thermostat, belts, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
I'd have interpreted Sean's question as whether to post the list of parts which went into his recent rebuild, rather than the list of parts he had left-over and available for sale. Either might be correct, but if Sean meant providing a list of parts which went into his rebuild, more power to him.
My wife's rebuild involved:
new gasket set (lots of stuff there -- oil seals, etc)
new main bearings
new rod big-end bearings
new small-end rod bushings
piston rings and hone liners, liner O-rings (in gasket set)
Permatex anaerobic gasket maker (cigarette seal supplement)
valves to replace those bent by P.O.'s out-of-time condition
new timing belt and tensioner
new water pump
T-stat housing hoses to heads and oil heat exchanger
new serpentine belts and idler pulley
new reaction rod and shifter bushings (engine out, why not?)
examine half-shaft, steering, and strut boots for replacement
(consider whether to replace radiator or heater core now)
and now is the time for:
power steering fluid,
brake fluid flush
examine pads, discs, and e-brake cables
And I suspect I've left out some significant things.
I hope to actually finally get this/these project(s) "off the ground" and actually onto the work bench.
Here is how I finally started process with my spare 6000 mile salvage car engine: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/164-168-1991-1995/144216-rained-today-so-field-stripped-164-engine.html...
So I bought an Alfa new in 1975. Around that time I also had a friend that had a 72 GTV. Until a few weeks ago I had never sat in another Alfa.
I am planning on retiring soon, and I decided that I will screw around with old cars for something to do. I am having a 2 car garage (currently under...
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?
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...
