  3. Anyone need a 116 GTV6 2.5 Busso block?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm still doing my 3.0 v6 build (not much spare time to do it in) so bought a complete 12v 2.5 v6 (engine number matches the gtv6 type) to take the ancillaries off. Once I'd dropped the heads I discovered it was as rusty / gunky as you'd expect a GTV engine which has been standing for years to...

    I need to order new bearings for my 2.0 TS but the engine numbers are missing. The donor car was also scrapped years ago and I don't know if I have any records of its registration plate. Is there a solution?

So it may seem odd that Alfas have any chance of surviving in this hospitable place. Well we also have plenty of bitumen in between. Like our road from Perth on the west coast...
