purpose

  1. FMIC ideas? Will an Iveco Daily IC serve the purpose, and what else is needed?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Want to mount a FMIC. Think I read somewhere that an Iveco IC will mount pretty well. What work will be needed to get it working? Will I need custom made pipework or is it a plug n play solution?
  2. crank ventilation? purpose of these hoses.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    hello! I'm not really a forum kind of mechanic but I recently acquired an Alfa 156 2001 2.4 JTD 10V. Now I'm in the process of refreshing the overall of the car. I'm unfamiliar with this engine yet, or diesel engines in general. I'm really curious what the purpose of these two hoses is if...
  3. What is purpose of this box?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Changed air filter and cleaned MAF yesterday. Whilst removing top of air filter unit with the connecting hard black plastic tube that leads across to carb I found a large moulded black box (moulded into hard plastic tube). This is after air filter but before carbs. it can't be opened as moulded...
  4. what purpose does this serve on the lower wishbone? (pics)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    ringed in red. noticed on one side mine was "loose" and figured was likely the source of my knocking noises so bent it in places so it's "flush" against the bush again. But what is it? [email protected]

  6. What is the purpose of a back box?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Looking to upgrade the exhaust on my Giuletta 1.4 TB soon, the long term plan is to go for the full system and work something out for a modified CAT that would still allow me to pass the MOT (or maybe move the cat in the centre pipe so that it is easily installed/removed pre/post MOT,but this is...
  7. Anyone know the purpose of the small green wire to the alternator?

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Is this important - or is it just for some light on the dash. Someone once told me it starts the alternator charging in some way, but I have never really believed that. Thoughts please...... :)
  8. Purpose of black button on key

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Afternoon all I own a V registered Alfa GTV 2.0 T-Spark. After checking a few sources I believe it to be a phase 2 car, its got a plastic rocker cover on top of the engine, and the center console features rounded air vents. Can anyone tell me if this car should have remote central locking...
  9. Do they do it on purpose?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Nice looking Blackline on eBay even if a little high on mileage , trouble is the pictures are of a JTS and the auction is for a JTD. Is it just lazy owners with a car for sale scouring the net for images and thinking...they'll do. What's the matter with these people? All the best Pub

    South Scotland
    So who is up for this one? :) A meet and run i've been thinking about for a while now and I've just got a plan worked out. Nothing too long, but enjoyable with a reward of fine Italian food at the end. :) This is a later start than normal with an afternoon run, and then early evening meal...
  11. 156 Tea Tray - does it serve any purpose?

    General Alfa Discussion
    apparently the real purpose of this wing was for homogulation reasons. If they sold the right number with a wing then they could use the same size wing on race version of the car. I almost didn't buy my 156 because of the wing, I thought it looked silly and boy racery. I'm glad I did buy it...
