  1. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, my name is Andy from Milton Keynes and I have a 1976 Alfa Giulia that I bought earlier this year. I am in the process (very slow) of improving her and will probably be asking lots of tech questions. I am not new to Alfa ownership as I had a 33 1.7 16v a few years ago. I have for a long time...
  2. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi Guys, Im new to the GT 1300 Junior twin cam cars and wanted to call upon the knowledge of the forum. My newly bought GT junior got me home in 2 hours but when I checked the oil I noticed the oil level had reached min. The dealer said i would need to top up the oil but also said all fluids...

    I was looking to do this sometime in the future as I am not completely satisfied with the brake performance but it has become more urgent lately as the o/s front caliper sticks on from time to time and so gets a tad hot :lol: (which I presume is a caliper fault) I have standard 1300 brakes with...

    I thought rather than posting on a separate thread everytime I do something to the car I would start this. Well today I took her to Ferdi's Garage in Lytham as I had a gusher of an oil leak, those of you who are old enough to know what the Torrey Canyon was will know what I am talking about...

  7. Alfa 164 & 166
    An effortless journey to southern Spain in my twin spark last week where it will remain for the next few months. An average mpg of 37 was achieved in an almost stress free trip . However , is it me or does the 6 speed gearbox leave a lot to be desired . I didn't notice much of a drop in revs...

    Well, I am taking delivery of this lovely ol' girl later this week. My first Italian delivery, and I sure am proud of this. Now, what do I have to look at when I get this girl? Common rust spots, snags, problems to encounter as this has been in a barn for a few years (however it was started...
  20. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My junior has had a full engine rebuild before I got it. It has tubular manifolds, twin dellorto 40s and looks normal. The block is a 1300 but it goes like stink. 110 mph at red line in 5th and it gets there pretty dam quick. Is this normal? Is it possible that somebody has used a 1300 block but...
