12v

  1. No 12v socket in boot

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've just bought a 66 plate 1.6 Giulietta tecnica and I was surprised to see it hasn't got a 12v socket in the boot - just a plastic blank where it should be. I have a 2011 lusso that has one - was this an optional extra, and is it possible to fit one?

  3. For Sale: Alfa 2.5 V6 12V 'Busso' Engine - £125

    Alfa 155
    I have a spare Alfa Romeo 2.5 V6 12V 'Busso' engine that I'd like to sell. It was taken from a 155 so would be suitable for dropping into another 155 or perhaps a 164. Alternatively they make great transplant engines, and can be modified for RWD use. I bought it several years ago for (another)...
  4. 12V cam covers interchangeable??

    General Alfa Discussion
    Technical question for you all...... do all 12V cam covers fit all other 12V V6 engines??? Or can I fit the nice plainer clean looking early cam covers to the later engine???? To be more specific, will the plainer early covers fit a 2.0 Turbo block? Which is the same a 3.0 164 block on the...
  5. 12V 164 engines?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Just playing the field at the moment but does anyone have a 164 12v engine they would be willing to part with, there are none on the bay right now and my mechanic says it might be worth looking for one as hes not yet figured out if my 164 has a blown head gasket or a cracked block, if he gets...
  6. Exhaust: unsilenced central section on V6 12v?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Dear Alfaowner community, I'm wondering how to improve a little bit the exaust note of my Spider 3.0 V6. My doubts are related to the fact that: 1) I'm satisfied of the general car sound, I like the fact that I can heard the great music coming from the V6 and that this is not overlapped by the...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! I know similar topics have been made before but I was unable to find a definitive answer. I have a 916 spider 3.0 v6 12v and I am looking for a new MAF. The original Bosch product has been taken out of production but whatever can be found in warehouses around Europe is excessively...
  9. 3.0 12V running problem

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I bought myself a 164 that doesn't want to move by itself. There seems to be a huge power loss as when trying to drive the engine dies eventually. Previous owner changed the plugs and in-tank pump. I today briefly inspected the car but I don't know anything about this Alfa generation (at least...
  10. Starter motor for 12v 3.0 164? Will others bits fit?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I have bought a non running 12v 3.0 164 motor for my MX5 V6 project that needs some bits... Older 12v parts are hard to find in NZ... Questions.... will a later start and flywheel fit at all? What about later injectors?? They would be easier to find. The learning continues.... I have the...
  11. For your perusal and entertainment - 164 12v vs 916 GTA 24v 3.0 Busso

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Another day, another speculative Ebay purchase. I found a cheap 916 gtv Busso block on Ebay, minus it's sump, conrods, crankshaft, liners, etc. The chrome trumpets looked in pretty good condition (except for one small dent) and I thought I could do a quick comparison between the 12v and 24v...

  13. Where can I connect to a switched +12V?

    Hi All I need to connect my DVR camera to a +12V supply that is only there when the engine is running. Is there somewhere easy to connect to please? I have no workshop manual to find it for myself (where do I get one from a reliable source is probably my next question?) Cheers James
  14. Busso 12v engine rebuild help - opinions needed!

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Since there are probably many people more experienced than me at engine rebuilding (I normally just drop in a replacement short or complete engine) I thought maybe someone could offer some opinions on this? It's a 3.0 12v Busso which has been standing for many, many years, generally it doesn't...

    Hi My son is looking at a 164 V6 12v replacement engine for his 1995 LHD Spider V6 12v Will the 164 engine fit? I did hear the engine mounts on the block could be different. Does anyone know if that is true? If so, can they be easily modified? Thanks in advance Rich

  17. Spider 1996 V6 12v

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello Does anyone know where the fuel pump relay is located on this model. The manual I have does not seem to show any details for the 12v model, only the 24v. I would have thought that maybe the fuel pump/relay might be the same, but apparently not. Regards Len

    Hi Guys, I am a proud owner of a gtv v6 turbo (Phase1/1997), when i bought this car there was a 12V meter build in but not connected. Now i read on the internet if you want to connect this meter, the best is you connect this somewhere before the cpu computers, directly on the battery or...
