  1. Coolant pipes

    Alfa GTA
    Some advice please folks. Does anyone know if the coolant and ancillary pipes are all common on the 156 GTA and the GT V6? Roose motorsport have a set for the GT and I wondered if they would fit the 156? One of my coolant hoses gave up the ghost over the weekend. Autolusso are out of stock of...

  4. V6 Inlet Pipes

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, What's the current thinking on the best way to refurbish Busso inlet pipes? I'm assuming that getting a good, robust finish by painting / powder coating isn't possible (unless the chrome is stripped first)? Has anyone used a chroming company recently with good results and decent...

  8. Separating an oil cooler from corroded pipes

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My oil cooler pipes were very corroded and as I had good access to the back of the engine with the sub-frame off I decided to purchase some new ones from Alfaholics. Of course, as most people have experienced, despite the fact that the oil cooler itself looked OK there was the not insignificant...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just had my aircon re-charged about 2 weeks ago and it's starting to go off so reckon I have a leak somewhere.. Had a quick look around (without a UV torch) and noticed some misting on the pipe in this photo.. Not sure whether these pipes in front of the condenser are related or not? Can...

  12. Replacing Brake Pipes on a 1972 Spider Veloce

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm looking to replace the original brake pipes on my 1972 Spider Veloce with some corrosion resistant ones. However being an early Kamm tail model that has been converted from LHD, I can't find a suitable copper brake pipe kit that is guaranteed to fit, so I'm thinking of measuring, cutting and...

    Hi Guys n Gells having modified loads of turbo'd cars, petrol and diesel, i know how important retaining the boost level is, and the dramatic cost in losses of weaknesses in the system, but ive never come across a car that sadly must have the worst record of unrelaibility as far as the standard...
  17. TS Thermostat to bulkhead pipes

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    A bit of an odd one this. My recent 156 purchase had an engine change 2 years ago. Had a good look under the bonnet to find the coolant pipes to and from the heater via the bulkhead were cut off and not connected, so coolant just circulates around engine/rad. As its been kinda warm, I have...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

Having spent the day on my back scrabbling around underneath...
