  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, I tried buying a Duetto from the US a couple of weeks ago but the seller disappeared on me, probably after accepting another offer. Anyway I have come across one that is for sale. It is quite expensive but as far as I can tell very original. Two issues thought, it hasn't really been...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got all my brakes upgraded back in January, Brembo Discs and pads. The rear left caliper was shot and actually shattered the remainder of the pad about 2 days before I got them done. Bought a cheap/used replacement for the time but this one is on it's way out now, anyone used the Ridex ones from...
  3. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello I am new here and seek advice before I waste a lot of time on what may be a simple problem. The car is not used much but is reliable and looked after, I took it out today and all seemed fine but after 5 miles or so the oil pressure started dropping from 20 down to 0 over about 15 minutes...
  4. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    As above, all being well I'm collecting a 105 next weekend, never having owned one before, any advice or must do things would be appreciated. It's been looked after well for at least 30 years by previous owner and runs well. In particular, what oil/plugs should be used? Thanks in advance.
  5. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have a complete 1600 engine for a 105 Series, originally planned to go into my Jnr Z but that is not happening anytime soon so I could do with the space freeing up. Will need an overhaul I suspect as it has been stood for a few years! but it has always been kept warm in a garage and the oil...

    Hi guys Thought I would post this in case any one is looking for a restoration project. On my daily commute I pass a house with a red GT Junior 1600 in the yard. I spoke to the owner and he says it runs but he's been too busy with his other restorations to even give the Alfa a chance. (His...

    My GT 1600 Junior Hello, Yesterday I picked up my Le Mans Blue 1976 GT 1600 Junior, car is fantastic, obviously had a lot of mechanical work performed on it to a good standard, very strong performance despite it needing a tune up and having sat for a year doing not a lot. There are a number...
  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, I'm looking to replace the old and tired starter gf my GT 1600 Junior with a newer one from a 75. However, the 75 start has 9 teeth and I'd need 8. Is there a source for 8 tooth bendix drives for 75 starts? Haven't dismantled the old start yet (thought that it would be great to have the...
  9. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all I have a difficult but fortunate choice to make: Which one should I go for? 1) 1965 Giulia Sprint GT 1600: very original, matching numbers, but very average to poor paintwork 2) 1972 GTV 2000: completely original, never restored, one owner, very good overall condition The price...
  10. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi All, Currently improving my 1976 GT Junior 1600 brought 6 months ago have done the brakes with new servos, brake lines, clutch slave cylinder, new alternator, rebuilt the Cylinder head, Gearbox is next as there is a whine which gets on my nerves when on the motorway at between 50 and...
  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I am currently working on my first Alfa which is a 1989 1600 Spider (RHD). I bought it as a rolling(ish) restoration with the plan to get the oily bits and the worst of the rust sorted before the summer to have a few months enjoying it before taking back off the road to carry on over the...
  12. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I decided to start the Junior today after the winter. Fresh petrol, fresh battery, plugs cleaned. Gave her a few turns and off she went. Good start. She was running very rough and would not idle but revved fine. I took her for a spin to warm her up (on my privately owned road, officer). All went...

    Hi, With a genuinely heavy heart I'm selling the Super. This was always a keeper and has been looked after such but as things go just when I get it all sorted i come across a new Alfetta than I couldn't pass on. Sadly I must enforce my (read my wife's) one in one out policy so the Super has to...

    Hi just brought the above car what mpg should I expect out of interest? Thanks Steve
  15. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    We have just the one thing not working on my Duetto... The brake lights!! So the first stupid question to ask is: did this model have a brake light type function? I take it yes, so, how did they operate? We thought at first a sensor under the brake pedal but seems not.. Any ideas - the...
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello everybody, I have a spider 1600 junior (1976) and slowly trying to make it good again. I'm not sure if the fuel consumption is right or too much. I think my car is doing 20mpg so can anyone tell me what your cars are making, please? Also has anyone installed rear seat belts for the rear...
  17. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Much as I love the idea of four (or more!) classic Alfa's, unfortunately at the moment the reality is a bit different and time, money, extra garage plans falling through and spousal nagging have gotten the better of me. Anyway so one has to go and its last in first out...

    Hello to all, i am now the proud owner of a 1974 1600 GT Junior which i imported from South Africa, which was fairly painless apart from the shipping company losing the registration document:cry:, the seller seems to have made a nice job of the resto, but have a few jobs to tackle before mot and...
  20. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello guys. Quick question. I bought new plugs and set their gaps to 0.6mm (NGK B7ES). Now I want to inspect and adjust my points gap. So I unclipped and removed the distributor cap. Pulled off the rotor. How do I rotate the engine so that the points gap stops in the open position? I tried...
