Re: Alfa33 overheating
Hey there i know what this is. i have just done a complete rebuild on my 1.5L 33 and before i did it had the same problem.
First of all i found that mine did not have any thermostat and most people would think that this would over-cool the engine but not true. This is because the thermostat forces the cooling water through the radiator but if the thermostat is not there very little actually goes through the radiator. So my suggestion is to check that there is a thermostat there to begin with and also to check that it works.
Also turning the heater on doesn't do that much because the cooling water is always going through it because there is no valve. So you could prob stop cooking yourself.
Hope this helps.
