  2. Leaking rear hub S2

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Just spotted oil on one of my rear wheels - looks like the oil seal is fubar - is this much of a job to do? - I'm assuming this is the seal?, the bearings are good so anything else worth changing while its in bits? Thanks...
  3. Networky Wi-Fi and an old BT home hub.

    The Technology Section
    The shed up the garden is out of Wi-Fi range. My plan is to use a power line adaptor from the DSL/Home hub and pop one in the socket in the shed. I then want the hub to broadcast the Wi-Fi signal, but I am worried that it won't be slaved correctly. What do I need to do?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

    Hi guys, I had to have the rear trailing arm, front left spring and some bushes replaced in the last weeks.

  7. Wheel hub stud conversion

    Tuning & Upgrades
    My wheel spacer kit has sat on the shelf for some considerable time because the supplied studs for the stud conversion do not have a "shoulder" and so my engineer won't fit them. Does anyone know a workshop that handles this modification? Most TS cup cars are running now with this conversion.
  8. Replacing front wheel hub - V6 TB

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, does anyone has experience replacing front wheel hubs? I think my car was previously owned by the Incredible Hulk as almost every bolt is over tightened. It's all new wheel nuts but not a bit of copper slip or grease and overtightened so a couple of threads are stripped, one completely. Do...

  11. Wheel hub caps don't go on the steel wheels

    Alfa Giulietta
    I changed my set of wheels for 16" steel rims with winter tyres but my wheel caps/hub cap don't go on my back wheels due to something sticking out from the center (see picture). I don't have this problem on the front wheels. Is it normal to have this center chrome cap on the back but not on the...

    I have two worn out front wheel bearings that I intend on replacing. Now know most will say "oh take it out and get a garage to swap the bearings for you" But due to a number of reasons this is not practical. So I am thinking about attempting a similar process to change the bearings insitu as I...

    Hi All, I am needing to replace my rear trailing arm bushes and my rear hub bushes (Not the transverse arms). I am going for powerflex. The trailing arm bush looks simple enough but the hub bush seems to have a metal outer insert. Does this need to be pressed in with a hydraulic press? Thanks,

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Was wondering if anyone knows what size nut and thread type I need to buy for hub bush bolts? I've sourced the bolt but for some inexplicable reason it doesn't come with a nyloc nut! I'm anticipating resorting to violence so should probably have a fresh nut to use! Any help appreciated! Cheers
