    how would I change the rear 3 plugs on this?
  2. Is this a 164 3.0 24v cam tensioner?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I found a couple of these in the bottom of a parts box. I think they're the tensioners for the early 3.0 24v used in the 164, but I'm not 100% sure. Anyone know for sure if these are 164 tensioners? And if so, how do I test if they still work OK? Both seem to spin freely but I can't work out...

  15. V6 24v misfire help!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My v6 seems to have developed a hesitation at idle, almost sounds like a little cough and when cruising at low rpm you can feel it stuttering.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    HELP please ! Hi, My '95 24V CL sat for a few years with near empty tank - consequently (or anyway) the "rubber" pipes and supports etc went soggy and the pump rusted and seized. So I now have a 60670832 assembly (3.5bar 50L/Hr), which I think is from a 166 V6, and I can make to fit - but it...

  19. Does anyone have a spare Air filter housing and bracket for a CF2 V6 24V

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Removed the air filter box yesterday to facilitate removal of the gearbox. Firstly the nuts and semi-circular bracket holding the MAF to the top of the air box lid are so corroded they won't release before turning the captive studs in the plastic. Is this going to necessitate a complete new...

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    As the value of my GTV is now approaching the cost of a cambelt service, I'm considering doing the job myself. I can swing spanners on pretty much anything else outside of engine rebuilding but I've never done a belt job yet. What do I need besides cam locks and are there DIY instructions...
