  1. Worn lobe both cams! 2.0 JTS

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    While digging into what was causing an extreme tappet noise starting from around 1500rpm, I removed the rocker cover and found that both cams had a very worn (3-5mm lost) lobe on cylinder 1 for the intake and cylinder 2 for the exhaust. So classic cheese cams on the JTS. The car seems to have...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can someone tell me how to remove my original gtv aerial? 2002 model. There's no nut to release on the outside of the car. I see there are a couple of nuts to remove on the bottom bracket, but is there also one on the underside of the mast where it passed through the body? Will the aerial just...

  10. Which shocks / springs for GTV?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I was hoping to get some recommendations for a good shock / spring combo for my V6 GTV project car. I want a slight drop in ride height (around 20mm or so) and better handling but probably don’t need adjustable shocks. I don’t want to lose my fillings over bumps either ideally! I...

  14. GTV paint bubbling near back screen, ideas?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My GTV has a little paint bubling in a bit of a tricky place. What's the best course of action here? Is it possible to fix without removing the rear screen? As far as I understand that is a big job that requires a lot of the interior stripped and the glass will not be re-usable, can anyone...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, Presently the car has a starting issue and we've decided to replace the ignition leads, cap, rotor, condenser, points and coil, (plugs already new) so at least we know that side of it is "as it should be". It'll either cure it or at least take it out the equation. The car doesn't get started...
