    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everyone The last few weeks I've noticed my temperature gauge is climbing to 2 or 3 needle widths above 90 degrees before the fan activates. It seems to cut out just below 90 degrees after activation. Pretty sure the fan always used to come on at bang on 90 degrees and would take the...

    Alfa GTA

  8. V6 slow speed cooling fan and relay

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Can anyone point me in the direction of where to find the slow speed cooling fan relay (199) please ? I have a 2001 3.0 24v spider and seem to have lost both my slow speed fans. I'm guessing that if one resistor has gone I would only lose one slow speed fan - surely they wouldn't both call...

  19. 1750 Electric fan conversion

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've pulled out the radiator this evening to change the water pump, and it occurs to me that there is plenty of room to fit an electric fan in front of the radiator and do away with the crude plastic mechanical fan. I'm guessing a lot of you will have done this? Is Revotec the way to go? I...
