    Is this straight forward to do? I thought I read somewhere you could fit these with minimal effort. I understand they are alloy so a good weight saving
  2. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi everyone, I am just weighing up changing my Solex's for Dellorto's (can get a pair for a good price) or whether to go for fuel injection by way of Link computer or perhaps the megasquirt project. My thinking is to use an intake from a later spider with Bosch injection and building the rest...

    Hello all, I had the brilliant idea of buying an Alfetta engine to replace my very tired U.S spec 105 series engine in my 1975 Alfa Spider. Now I have the origional engine out it has become apparent that the engines are different! It looks to me like I would need to swap the following to get it...

    A friend of mine spotted this at a car show in Vancouver recently. Don't know if this would be the popular view, but I think it's rather cool. Actually, he's not 100% sure this (which he found on the web later) is the car he saw, as the interior was...

    Gents & Ladies: My GTJ with TS is silky smooth at 80mph but starts to vibrate above 100. Heavy duty doughnut fitted, new UJS & propshaft greased, wheels are balanced. What is your experience, do the drive rubbers get excited at these speeds? Anybody been up to 130 140? the motor on mine seems to...

  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I am currently restoring the above model and the car has been off the road and not driven for 15 months the clutch goes flat to the floor and the brake is hard fixed.

    thinking of purchasing 16" wheels for the 105... technically speaking is it the right thing to do? or should i stay with the standard 14" wheels?

    Hello, The manual I have suggests you can simply remove the sump and extract the oil pump. I'm stuck at the moment trying to slide the sump out, it catches on the crank and there doesn't appear to sufficient space for it to clear the cross member. Has anyone else removed an oil pump from a '73...

    Help. Rear axle. 2000 cars had LSD, old cars had drums and then went to discs, I think some had different axle ratios but are all axles the same width?? My S3 2000 spider rear wheels are nearly 2” (in old money) less wide apart than the front wheels. I noticed because the front wheels were out...

    Hi guys, I have a 105 hp 147 2002 and I had planned to swop the standard 15" alloys for 17" alloys, will this be OK, will it negatively affect the ride in anyway?? Would 16" be better for this lower HP car?? Thanks, Jim
