  1. Lightened crank pulley

    Has anyone fitted a light weight undersized crank pulley. Looking into sourcing one at the mo. I know AutoLusso do a kit for £175. Would like to know the benefits of someone actually running one thanks.
  2. Alfetta 2.0 GT front crank pulley - easy removal

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Well I have been struggling to get my front pulley off. 3ft breaker bar and 6ft scaffold pole wouldn't budge it. I don't think the full problem is how tight this nut is more to do with the rubber donuts in the propshaft not locking things solid. Well today I bought one of the following for...
  3. '82 Alfetta GTV - Water Pump Change - Remove Crank Pulley?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    So the job this weekend is to change the worn out pump. It is the late type with pressed on pulley and timing mark. I have read up on this and it seems that there are two options:- 1) Remove the crank pulley. 2) By locking two nuts onto the bottom studs of the water pump remove the two bottom...

  5. 156 JTD 10v - Crank Pulley

    Whilst investigating what sounds like a dry aux belt pulley bearing I noticed the crank pulley rubber looks very perished. Should I be replacing this too?
  6. Exhaust Cam pulley key way

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just pulled belts off and noticed on exhaust pulley the keyway has come off. I have another cam pulley but its slightly different. There is only 1 cut out on the sprocket that the cam sensor picks up on. The spare pulley I had in the shed has 4 cutaways that the cam sensor picks up on! Is that a...
  7. Crank Pulley Help Please.

    Alfa 155
    Morning Gents, I hope you are all well? If you look at my previous thread, you will see that I eventually found a new tappet cover. Fit the new one and started her up. But......(always a but :depressed:) There is absolutely no oil reaching the valves and the cam-shafts. I check the oil...

  9. Alternator pulley or Air-con pulley?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    On Engine startup (1.9 jtdm), I have a short chirp noise coming from aux belt area, I am thinking it is either the freewheeling pulley on the alternator or aircon pulley causing it. Some advice I found on this website: " On-vehicle testing A short chirp noise during engine start-up or shut...

  12. Aux belt, crankshaft, pulley, 2.2, JTS

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    They fail. 2006. 40k miles. The inner donut is glued to the outer pulley body with a rubber ring. When it fails, the inner half rattles about and wears against the cam chain cover which will eventually write the whole engine off. (Typical GM rubbish.) Alfa can't supply the pulley, it's on...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My V6 is having the belts done as we speak and I need a new crank pulley as its worn. It's the lower one that drives the Aux belt. Apparently they are no longer available from Alfa and to date I've only found a used part at Autolusso. Two questions would a used pulley be ok? Can I get a...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I dropped my 147 JTD off at my local indie for its MOT yesterday and I asked him to look into a rattle thats recently developed at idle. As soon as revs go over ~1200 its fine but at idle there's a noticeable rattle/rumble noise. This is not affected by whether clutch is...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My gtv is back in the garage again. Had cambelt and all associated bits changed a few weeks ago and this week it started making a loud squeel at low revs and also when steering on full lock, assumed it was the aux belt and turns out it was due to the rubber damper on the aux crankshaft pulley...

    Hi everyone, a couple of weeks ago (when the temperature dropped) my 156 1.9 JTD 16V had trouble starting in the morning.
