    The sad day has arrived whereby my beloved 166, which I have owned since 2011 and used as a daily driver, is not economically viable for me to repair. It was running fine until last December but unfortunately is now at McLellan's garage in Edinburgh with a coolant issue so it requires a head...

  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    HI everyone, I have been following this forum for a few years now but never got myself to make an account until now... I really really want a Busso GTV (preferably phase 2) and have spent countless hours reading posts on different forums about them. Obviously being an Alfista I understand that...
  5. Alfa GTA
    An interesting GTA has appeared on Auto Trader... interesting to me because it's a GTA and I like to keep an eye on the value, it's sub 100k, it's red and it looks pretty standard. But I think it's interesting mainly because it's carrying the RE02 reg prefix, which I understand is significant...

    My 1999 156 2.5 v6 just hit 260 000 km. ±160 000mi. What is yours? I added evidence... Let me know what you think?
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After changing the shells on the JTS, the engine purrs nicely while on the move, smooth and good power, however when holding revs around 2000 to 3000 while stationary it sounds a little too rattly... the solution would be engine out, rebuild and get the crank ground. However, going to all this...
  8. Alfa GTA
    Good to see these commanding strong money, but this... is very strong. 30-odd thousand miles is low and there can't be many with that mileage. Be interesting to see if it sells...

  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning Alfisti. Have the V6 owners among us ever found a supplier for the small retaining clips that secure the engine loom connectors to the coil packs? They don’t seem to be a standard thing which I suppose isn’t surprising... Thanks 👍

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I've got a leak which looks like it's coming from around the camshaft area of the front bank of my GT's V6. Any ideas what it could be and more importantly, how much it's likely to break my bank? There's no "Mayo" residue build up on the oil filler cap which makes me think (hope) it's...
  13. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Today I checked the timing on my Busso 3.0. The results looked pretty bad - interested to know what others think. It's in a recently-acquired GTV that has not run for several years; the guy I bought it from was in the trade and mentioned his mechanic had changed the cambelt at some point. The...

  15. Alfa 155
    I have a spare Alfa Romeo 2.5 V6 12V 'Busso' engine that I'd like to sell. It was taken from a 155 so would be suitable for dropping into another 155 or perhaps a 164. Alternatively they make great transplant engines, and can be modified for RWD use. I bought it several years ago for (another)...
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm trying to raise some cash to replace my cylinder heads and clear some space for dismantling my pair of transaxles, so I'm selling off the parts left over from my 3.0 12v rebuild and experiments: GTV-6 / 75 2.5 12v stuff: 2.5 12v Busso pistons - really good condition 2.5 12v Busso flywheel...

    Just received a barn find GTV with a CF2 3.0 motor and 130k on the clock. Before trying to start it, I removed the cam covers on both banks to inspect the cams, add some oil, and run a compression test... which revealed no compression at all on cylinders 1 and 6, with normal pressure on the...
  18. 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...
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    I know most folks get their knickers in an excited twist over the near F1-like bark the V6 makes, and while I agree with them, I think the V6’s more gentle and often over looked more gentle purrs should be applauded, too. https://youtu.be/ZVl_RT-wtoo
