Wave Alfa 164 newbies need help

Afternoon all,

After running far too reliable cars this year, both us lot and another team have got hold of 164s for next years Staples2Naples banger rally - and both have "issues" already... We love a challenge! Both are 92 2.0 TS's

Our one: Chronic running-on. You switch the ignition off and it runs on for ages. I don't think its preignition as the fuel pump should be off so any ideas anyone

The other one: Needs a new head gasket Unfortunately we can't find a workshop manual for love nor money SO... Can anyone either:
i) tell us what the head bolt tensioning order and torque settings are
ii) tell us where we can get (or do a copy of) a manual from

Cheers folks!

Re: Alfa 164 newbies need help

Understand thats a fun event - a mate did it last year - or the year before, using a Tipo diesel, I think....

Can't really see what else the running on can be but a coked up head, leading to preignition, remember that the fuel is under pressure and will continue to flow after the pump switches off for a short while - lets face it, if its running its burning something

I'm sure there are CarData manuals out there on disc - tho I've just scanned Ebay and can't see any - but there are 155 manuals - and the 8valve 155s use essentially the same engine as the 164 - so there's a possibility...

If you get stuck, I've got one somewhere and will try to find the info.
