  2. Where to buy carb manifolds to 16V engine

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Some years ago someone was selling manifolds to adapt the 1.7 16V engine to carbs. I need a pair to a project but I couldn´t find any for sale and also I dont want to spend a fortune for them, because if someone asks me a lot of money I will install the original injection and it´s done. Where...

    Good Afternoon, I have car adapters for the 1.7 16V engine that is going in my 33 but I realized there are no anchor points for the throttle linkage and there is no Vacuum Port. I need the Vacuum Port to connect to the Power brakes. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards. Keith
  4. Weber carb problem

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi All, I have a problem that I can't figure out on my Weber. The rear carb is fine but on the front carb I am only getting fuel out of one of the accelerator pump jets. I have had it apart and cleaned the jet but the fuel doesn't seem to be getting to the jet in the first place. When I hand...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I having trouble starting my 1750 GTV it had been sitting for 12 years. Ignition is ok and I can occasionally get it to run up on 2-3 cylinders but i'm guessing I going to need a rebuild the carbs as I can't get it to run on all 4. I'm running off of a header rather than the tank and have...

  9. Carb tuning

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've got an ongoing problem with my 1976 spider S2 - It has twin Dellorto carbs and is running rich. Starting is difficult and the engine runs on 2 or 3 cylinders until it's warmed. When checked, the plugs are always black and sooty. I've had the carbs adjusted by my local mechanic but there's...

  14. Any Carb expert left?.

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi all, I recently took part in a few hillclimb runs at Shelsey Walsh at the weekend, 1st run great, second run suffering from a misfire which I believe is due to a hot engine causing a fueling issue. If I back off the accelerator for a few seconds it sorts itself out an I can gun it again...
  15. Advice on carb swap...nothing to do with Weigh****chers!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    After leaving carbs behind 20 years ago and being a convert to throttle bodies and EFI...I now find myself back at the start! I've just bought a 105 Spider 2000. It's going for an engine rebuild soon as it's low compression on a couple of cylinders and at 140K miles (I think!) probably could do...
