I shall tell him. I would love to post photos, but neither are in a pleasing condition. One blew 5 piston rings on a rolling road, and the other is off the road due to rot. He currently has far to many projects to do anything about it, and mum has recently bort a new car so he;s using her old one (he wrecked that now tho). Seems a shame, but he has so many alfas that it's impossible to keep them all road going at any one time!!
Hi from Tasmania, Australia
Just been reading the Alfa 90 thread and would appreciate some info about your dads
Alfa 90 please.
I have a ticking noise in my engine that could possibly be stem or guide related. Could also be ring, gudgeon, piston slap, connecting rod bearings etc. Adjusted all the valve gaps to zero and still have ticking.
When your fathers car had 5 rings fail, what sort of engine noises and other symptoms did he notice?
