Catastrophic spark plug failure - much help needed!
Yesterday I purchased a very clean and pretty Red CF3 2.0 twinny in Cleethorpes! My second alfa spider....
The drive home to London went very poorly as a spark plug failed near louth. Failed as in popped the centre of the plug UP into the coil and then obviously lots of noise and smoke and stopping.
So - the garage I have got it to will look on Monday but I know I need a complete replacement coil pack (simple and sorted) a set of plugs (again all done) and also an engine wiring harness. The existing one has clearly been exposed to a great deal of heat for some time (i'm guessing the coil wasn't on the plug correctly and the subsequent overheat caused the failure) .
So - does anyone have a wiring harness?
Does anyone know if other alfa models harnesses fit so I can widen a search for one? New from Alfa I suspect will be horrific.
thanks in advance!
It seemed like such a good idea at the time. Buying the cheapest Spider on Ebay - sight unseen, with 19 previous owners and no service history then driving her to Florence. Of course she made it! - now I have a newer PH3 version and life is good.
