Re: What's going on.....?
Hi, welcome to Alfa Owner.
check the vacuum line from the inlet manifold to the brake servo, its very possible this has a split in it. If the line is ok, try blocking it off then starting the car - if it is then ok (except for the brakes) then the servo itself is shot.
neither problem is major, as a decent used servo can be cheaply obtained from autolusso, or you may even be able to get a rebuild kit. Either way, it shouldn't be that bad a job to fit.
there are a few guys on here that really know their 166's so i'm sure the 166 will be able to hold out for a good few years yet
Be judged for the man you are, and the actions of your life, not the book you read or the statue you pray to.......
Never hold a grudge, its a sign of a small, petty person.
