  1. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello all. I’m wondering if someone can help with my oil pressure gauge. I’m assuming it’s broken and not making any sense but thought I’d check on here anyway. I’ll link two videos on iCloud. The one that is 32s was when cold straight after start up. The 40s video is after a 6 mile drive...

    I am feeling very happy I finally got a 75 twinspark engine for the alfetta. However there are a few things missing. I recently got a bellhousing for it, but I do not have the bolts that attach it to the block. I'd like to take my time and get the engine and bellhousing and starter all bolted up...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've searched the forums, and the motor factors websites, and all I can find are these stands that bolt to the bell housing. When I rebuilt my V6 busso, in erm cough 1991 I had a stand that attached to the engine mounts, that you could rotate the engine about. But these do not seem to be...

    Onwards and upwards....., we had hoped to finish installing the Alfetta head today but couldn't join the cam chain because the tensioner wouldn't slide any further in to its hole, we used as much force as we dared but it felt like it was coming up against a stop, it moves in and out quite freely...

    Engine turns over. Bores look good. Head removed for inspection 112mm height so looks to be unskimmed. Oil looks quite clean. 116 engine but can be adapted for 105 series No carbs with the engine. Can probably find manifolds if you need them. £350 without cams or £500 with cams Will split...

    Hi guys. I've turbo'd my 2000 junior using a T28 journal bearing turbo running 0.8 bar of boost. I converted the car to fuel injection by building a intake manifold and its running on a powermods management system. the car made 230hp and 340nm at the wheels. Just before the car went to the...

    I am wanting to replace the timing gears on a '79 2.0 ltr u.s. Engine in my gtv sprint veloce. I have yet to find a parts house that carry them here in the states. I found chains, but no gears. If anyone knows a good parts outlet to buy them from, I would be greatful. Thanks again

    Anybody use them before? I already have a set that I bought from Alfaholics but it would be nice if I could get as set for 45DCOE as well. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    I have an engine in my garage that I've always thought was a 1750 because of the head mark. but the block is it's stamped AK01600 * 006375

    So last Friday I visited a fellow Alfista who recently acquired a turboed Giulia 2.0. It's running FI on Diktator management. The car runs well when cold but after some driving, the engine starts losing power and almost dying but can be persuaded back to pulling okay by tapping on the petrol...

    My series 1 1750 has a boosted 2 litre Alfetta (Alpine Turbo) with 8.1:1 CR and running 0.8bar boost. Before I get crucified for messing with a series 1 1750, just know that I bought it this way almost 3 years ago and it has been a project ever since….My most recent problem is that it popped its...

    I'm going to modify a 2000 Nord head in the near furture. This will be one I've had for a while, problem is I've mislayed 3 of the tappet buckets and one of the valve spring caps. If anyone has any of these parts spare and willing to sell please let me know

    I posted in the SA classifieds section too but thought I'd ask here: A friend is restoring a 1300 step nose and needs a 1300 Nord engine to take the car back to original spec. Any thoughts who I could contact in Jhb/Pretoria area that may have the above? Kevin at AK is looking but no joy yet...

    Hi all - I'm on a bit of a drive to make some progress on my car after a somewhat quiet winter time... As such I have a few bits and bobs to sell on, having accumulated too many engine parts. I will put a proper list up this evening with some pics & prices. All parts are 2L Nord associated...

    Anyone know the factory jetting for Dellorto 40DHLA fitted to 1300 Nord? Picked up a set of 40s with 28 chokes off a Alfa so should be near enough to get up and running for a rolling road session, just wondered if anyone knew so I could they follow Weber sizes?
  19. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Can anyone advise from personal experience what the safe maximum rev's should be on an uprated 2lt Nord ? By uprated , I mean fully lightened/balanced bottom end , new liners with HC pistons on steel H rods , head ported and machined for 1mm larger inlets , very light skim to level , rifle...
  20. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    When I changed the oil/filter after buying the GTAm 2lt 105 replica , I didn't have the correct socket and ended up borrowing one from Paul/AFORALFA and can't remember what size it was. I phoned Classic Alfa first before asking Paul and they told me the size , off I went and bought one BUT it...
