  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Last weekend I replaced the alternator on my Phase 1 TS Spider. Instead of removing it from below (as per the workshop manual), I removed if from above - which necessitated removing the inlet manifold/airbox. Other items that are accessible once you’ve removed the airbox include the starter...

    Hi! My steering rack is showing a bit of vertical play in it. It's due to change soo I was wondering, if it would be possible to use rack from 4 cyl to reduce turning circle. Is there a way to limit the turning to the exact point before wheels start grinding agains wheel arches? Does it mess...

    Hi, I've fitted a new clutch slave cylinder to my 156 2.5 V6 and noticed that it's a loose fit in the bracket. Does that sound right or should it be a push fit? It's the correct cylinder. Cheers

    Just wondered if to bleed the slave on the 147 you release the clip then pull the pipe out to the first notch then pump the pedal or is it a different method ? Does it need to be running or not? Any advice would be great:thumbs:

    Article in Evo Pg77 about the Busso Engine. Classed as the world's best sounding 6 cylinder engine ever. Doesn't it make you feel proud to be an owner of such an engine? :cool: Also Alfa 8c is part of the discussion for the best sounding engine.
  11. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Looking at the front of the engine the LEFT Front & RIGHT Rear have compression. The 2 without are Left Rear & RIGHT Front 0 bar <--> 6 bar 6 bar < --> 0 bar The battery I was using was weak & therefore not turning over the engine very fast, i reckon that's why the 2 are showing 6 bar, would...
