  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    When my 1991 spider eventually returns from its engine woes I plan to change the brake fluid and obviously will be bleeding the brakes. At the same time I thought it might be prudent to replace the bleed nipples. Are they the same on all calipers front and rear? Are there stainless ones...

  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider ... ipple-g-bn I'm having the ABS assembly re-built in my '96 Spider, so will have to bleed all the lines when reconnected. Thinking of fitting some of these, but I have no idea of the thread size required. Can anyone suggest the correct thread type...

    just changed my discs and pads yesterday, which im going to add was surprisingly easy. however i was lured into a false sense of security. i began bleeding the system and found the bleed nipple thread had stripped, so unfortunately when i did it back up, it was still leaking a little bit. i...

    Hi, i need to change the bleeding nipples at the breaks of my Alfa GTV 1.8 TS (4001 040, 15.09.00, ZAR91600006062772 8). The spanner width is 11 mm. Does anybody know the size or the Alfa item number? It would be very nice if someone could help me very quick. Thank you.
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    & Not the jogging kind! I have just started stripping a set of brake callipers “Brembo (305) front and lucas rears” so I can referb them and replace my rather sad looking items. As part of the referb I would like to replace all the bleed nipples with stainless items and at least all the...

    Err that should be LADIES, not loadies.... Took driver side front brembo off today to change pad and disc, clean up etc. Discovered the inboard bleed nipple was completely rounded off. Tried to remove it without any joy - heat/freeze, penetrating oil, stud extractor, then on closer inspection...

    Sod warm climates and blazing sun,you can`t beat a topless blast in a Spider on a cold but bright Autumn day,for blowing away a few cobwebs. Just taken the Spider for a new set of boots and wheel alignment,and thought I`d better take a slight detour to check the handling. An hour or so...
