I have a 72 1600 Junior, it’s a stock car (engine-wise) but it has spent it’s recent years as a hill climb car in Italy so has a pretty stiff suspension set up.
It came with semi slicks on it which I’d like to remove to get some of the sidewall / comfort back while still being...

Hi, I am new to this forum. I am a Canadian living in Slovakia and drive several alfa's but feel very lonely in my ownership of a black 146 junior with the 1.6 engine. Anyone else out there with this version and engine? Any production numbers out there?

I am new here and seek advice before I waste a lot of time on what may be a simple problem.

I am the owner of a 1971 Alfa Romeo 1750 Gtv.
The car was a daily driver till it picked up a starter issue last year.
When i removed the starter (8 tooth), i had found that the starter nose had completely broken off (images attached) and almost fell into the flywheel well.
I was looking to do this sometime in the future as I am not completely satisfied with the brake performance but it has become more urgent lately as the o/s front caliper sticks on from time to time and so gets a tad hot :lol: (which I presume is a caliper fault)
I have standard 1300 brakes with...
I want to remove the wheel in my car and replace it with a momo wheel.
I have taken the centre cap of the wheel and was expecting to find a large nut to undo.
There is a centre spline but no nut and the boss type thing seems to be riveted.
What am i missing here guys...
Decided to make some subtle changes to the front of the junior.
Removed the chrome horizontals, and decided to get the grill re-powder coated. Fitted new clear indicators and chrome finish amber bulbs (to replace the old worn looking orange indicators), and fitted a pair of period correct wipac...

Three years ago I bought a Mito Turismo, unfortunately I now need to part ex it for a bigger car however some things have been uncovered recently that makes me think my Turismo is actually a modified Junior.

I have bought a wonderful 1976 spider junior 1600 last may and i want to slowly fix it.
There are a few things to be fixed on the interior:
1 - I have noticed that the seat covers and the door panels are slightly blueish while the interior should be all black.
Is there a quick...
I have bought last may a 1976 spider junior 1600cc and i am slowly fixing a few little things.
The first and second gear "scratch" slightly when i insert them.
Could this be the famous worn syncro-mesh or is it something else?

After my 1.6 GT Junior engine gave up on me 10 miles from destination on a 300 mile trip last summer, I bought what turned out to be a 2.0 Alfetta engine from eBay as a temporary replacement (listing advertised it as a 105 engine).
I understand that the Alfetta crankshaft may, or may...
