Re: PROBS FINDING 5th GEAR
From Alfa Workshop GTV buyers guide:
"Clutches and gear boxes are very reliable, a worn clutch will tend to bite at the top of its travel and as they are self adjusting. A high biting point signifies that a new clutch will be needed soon. The 3.0l clutch is a pull type clutch and can get quite heavy as the diaphragm work hardens, the cover does not then exert enough pressure on the friction plate and this may then slip. Gear boxes are generally trouble free, but do check that all gears engage smoothly without crunching, occasionally the nut comes loose on 5th gear and this can make 5th gear difficult to engage, however the nut only usually needs tightening which can be done with the gear box in situ."
