  1. Alfa 155
    My old beast has always had a bit of a glitch around 1300rpm.. it just hesitates briefly depending on how quickly I'm accelerating and the weather and the engine temperature (the slower, the colder makes it worse). It runs okay either side of 1300 rpm so logically the HT system, plugs, TDC...

  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've just bought a 2.4JTD sportwagon with an 180bhp Angel remap. It had a recon clutch fitted by Monza Sports 1,300 miles ago and it's slipping. How can this be? The clutch bites right at the top of it's travel and judders a bit pulling away. There is no burning clutch smell. Could the...

    I always wanted an Alfa but still always found it hard to take that final step needed to actually get one. All that talk about rust and unreliability scared me off. However when I was in Cyprus I saw a strange type of Alfa that I had never seen before and said that’s the Alfa for me. I thought...

  20. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    When I bought my GT 1300 Junior in 1999 the one snag I did not like about it was that there was no radio. I have now obtained a radio - ex my VW caddy van which has got a sat nav unit. I am about to fit it but there is no obvious place in the dash to put it. Can someone tell me where the radio...
