  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi! I am about to change my oil on my 1974 Alfetta for the first time myself. My Haynes manual states that I should use SAE 10W/50 oil, but my local shop only sells SAE 20W/50 Classic Oil from Castrol, for "60's & 70's cars". Is it okay to use 20W/50, or is it a bad idea? PS. I live in...

    Breaks my heart and keeps me up at night to do this, but I must sell my beloved Alfa. It is a 1979 Alfetta Sport Sedan that has been modded in many different ways. NOT a purist's car. DEFINITELY a car that wants to be driven and driven constantly. I use it as a daily driver. It's got warts...
  3. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, I have listed this 1/24 scale die cast model on eBay. Condition is new with its original box. Having a reluctant clearout. I've been told this model (by Leo) is worth about £50. For those that are interested, please see...

    Hello, I've recently run across an '87 Alfetta that appears to be pretty solid and complete (minus a bit of linkage at the Webber's). Any feedback on what area(s) I should look at before I write the check? How difficult will it be to locate parts? Also, I'm 6'2" and around 190 lbs. Will I be...

    I've searched the forum, but nothing about this is in the history. I think I need new door seals on the Allfetta GT, since I can now actually see the water dripping from the door. My first instinct is to call Highwood, but based on the quality of the speedo cable I last got, I though I would ask...
  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Please someone talk me out of this idea. I've found an Alfa 75 turbo engine, its a 1.8, just like the 1.8 in my Alfetta, but has fuel injection and an extra 30% power. I have a notion to make a modern turbodelta. I realise this is total madness, but I just can't help myself. I must be sick in...

    My '79 Alfetta 2.0 saloon needs a new radiator: the current one was bought new (by me) 25 years ago and its plastic side tanks are brittle and leaking. The saloon had a different radiator to the GTV coupé, and none of the usual suppliers seem to have one. One option is to have an all-metal...

    I'm getting bubbles in my coolant this week, the sure sign of a head gasket failure. I found a receipt for head welding in my document folder, and then there is the graunched cam bearing because a PO fitted the cam caps in the wrong places. I was looking for a replacement 1750 head, and then I...

  11. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I had a lovely drive in the GT today, but rather alarmingly the seatbelts do not seem to latch when you yank the belting. Also, this car has some wierd seat belts that involves fitting the bare webbing into a kind of scissor-jaw latch, which is both uncomfotable if you are in a traffic jam on...
  12. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Well, I'm moving house in a couple of weeks time, and will be without a garage. I did previously keep the Alfetta outside for two weeks, before I couldn't bear the noise of the car screaming as she dissolved into a pile of rust. The plan is to keep her on a private driveway - so what are my best...

    Hi I am rebuilding my GTV 2.0 gearbox at the moment and I have just received the intermediate flange bearings from EB spares UK. What I would like to know if changing these 2 bearings will affect the height between the pinion and intermediate flange needing to change the shim ? I didn't...
  14. Introduce Yourself
    Hello Ladies and Gents, Jason here from Australia. I have been a Alfa die hard for almost 25 years now. I'm mostly into the Alfetta / 116 series of cars but also love many other Alfas. I currently own a stock original 1985 Alfa GTV6 with plans to make it my ideal street version of a GTV6. I also...

    I keep seeing all these GTV6 for sale, which remind me of my first car ( a 1982 GTV6 ). So thought I would test the water to see if anyone might be interested in a virtually rust-free Alfetta GT, to help me fund a GTV6 purchase...:yum:
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all. I have in my possession, a 3 litre 12 valve V6 taken from a vandalised 164 about 12 years ago to use in a GTV stage rally car. Engine was turned around using Alfa 75 sump, fuel rail, fly wheel etc. but the project stalled and will not now go ahead. Engine ran very well before removal...

    Does anyone know where I could get a set of four (front and rear) custom carpet mats for my UK spec, right hand drive 1979 Alfetta saloon? I'm not expecting these to be available off-the-shelf... Any help/thoughts/ideas much appreciated.
