  1. HP Diesel Pumps

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hey all, Has anyone tinkered about with a HP diesel pump before? I'm based in a ChemEng research lab at the moment, finding that we need a pump capable of delivering high-pressure (~200 bar) at a low-ish flow rate (~10 mL / min), of a solution of smashed up plant bits (d < 1.4mm) in water...
  2. Best Brands of Timing Belt and Water Pumps

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning All, Got the whole job of plugging the intake manifold soon. What are the best brands of water pump and timing belt kits for these cars would you say? I am happy to just wait until Eurocarparts or Mister-Auto have a big sale and just make the most of it whilst they are on their sale...
  3. My Giulietta - Update. Dodgy water pumps, strut top bearings and Bilstein warning.

    Alfa Giulietta
    So this weekend I decided to spend some time on my troublesome Giulietta so that I can stop hating it and start enjoying it. So, first things first, I stripped the engine down and put the old water pump back on. Result! the engine no longer whines up to 3000rpm and has gone back to being...
  4. Fuel Leaks, Pumps and Pipes

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Problem with a fuel pipe on my 1.9 JTD, 2007 GT Steel pipe joining the HP pump to the fuel rail keeps failing. The original (as far as i can tell) was on for over 7 years and 124k miles. I am now on my third after the second failed a month ago, 6 weeks after replacement. The latest replacement...
  5. Question re S4 fuel Pumps

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My external fuel pump is emitting a high pitched whine. I understand that this can be caused by wear of the pump or the failure of the internal (tank) pump. To test the internal pump I bypassed its circuit by running direct power to it from the battery. I could not detect any noise or vibration...
  6. Electric petrol pumps

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Have any S2 owners had any experience of fitting an electric pump rather than use the fitted mechanical pump? If so has there been a noticeable improvement in starting? If this has been found to be beneficial can you advise on the following: 1. What make of pump did you fit? 2. Where in the...
  7. Are all 33 oil pumps the same?

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Is there a difference between oil pumps in the 33? How do you tell if you have a good one? Are there some basic checks you can carry out?
  8. Circoli water pumps on GTA

    Alfa GTA
    Has anyone had Circoli water pumps fitted on their GTA? As far as I’m aware they’re a decent brand, but wanted to make sure! I think originals were supplied by Bugatti (perhaps a different Bugatti to the Veyron manufacturer?!). Thanks
  9. 159 2.4 20v Water pumps

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know the issue of cambelt changes being necessary earlier than handbooks say , due to w.pump bearing failure , has been well documented on here -- however , does anyone know whether the pump can be taken apart ? If they fail due to water ingress into the bearing then lubricating the seal...
  10. Main Dealers and Water pumps

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have had my GT for about 3 months now and I must say I love her to pieces. What a great car and the sound of that V6 engine is to die for. When purchasing the car I looked for one with a cambelt change etc so I didn't have to worry about the expense of having it done myself. So after...
  11. Single/Twin carb fuel pumps

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    It's been referenced in the other thread about the difference between the heads, but can anyone detail the differences between the single and twin carb fuel pumps? I've been having various issues following a twin carb conversion on the sud and after working through some other ignition problems...
  12. No more petrol at the pumps!!!

    Republic of Ireland
    Well what will we do the day this happens. Will we keep the cars and throw sugar at them, would you convert them to a bio based fuel. Could you drive an electric Alfa.... thoughts and opinions
  13. My water pumps leaking...

    Alfa GTA
    ...I took the wheel off to try get a better look and it seems to be coming from behind the pulley on the water pump? It's not a big leak, i'm having to top the reservoir up about once a week with a 1 cup of water. Do you thing it's maybe just the gasket? And do I REALLY REALLY have to take...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Curious if anyone knows someone who sells NEW selespeed pumps at a very good price? Regards
  15. Appetite for Power Steering Pumps. *burp*

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi all, It's been a while since I last posted here, but I think my 146ti (~120k miles on the clock) overheard me being smug about reliability: I took it in for a cambelt service last month, and the auxiliary belt was replaced as well. A few miles afterwards (maybe 30) the power steering...
  16. Fast Question: Do all the 33's fuel pumps are the same?

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Today I changed mine with one from 1.7 8v that was little bit smaller, but the exit pipes are the same diameter. Do they have same flow ? There is no change about car's power. That is mine from 16v.
  17. water pumps

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Can you open up water pumps to see if they have metal or plastic impellors? I am about to embark on a bit of engine work, which may involve a rebelt and I was thinking about the water pump as it is down there. I had my water pump replaced about 4 years ago, would it be dangerous to assume it...
  18. Fuel pumps

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, any one knows if the Phase-2 3L fuel pump can be used for the Phase-1 2L GTV? i expect the 3L unit can pumps out more fuel than the 2L unit, but will be regulated by the fuel pressure regulator. any feedback or comments will be very helpful. thank you.
