  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Got the new pump in the car and the pump works when you open the door . However draws too much current after a while. Wondering if something in the actuator is jammed or a solenoid prevents the fluid by-pass back into the reservoir? Surely in neutral there must be a by-pass valve or some...

  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm intrigued by the common and diverse interests that lead us all to the love of the Gtv & Spider... So, with cash to burn and a spare space in the garage - the challenge is to list here the one other fun/weekend car you would purchase to sit alongside the Gtv. Rules - none, other than it must...
  4. Alfa 145 & 146
    Well i took the car to Llandow on Saturday - handling and ride were greatly improved with the Bilstein B6's and new droplinks fitted, and felt like it had better torque however the new power steering pump blew its seal like the old one also did at the end of the first session - I was not a happy...

  6. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I need a Pressure Relief Valve for my 69 Spider's Spica fuel injection system. It fits into the banjo which is on top of the Fispa canister which holds the main fuel filter. Anyone have one for sale or know of a vendor who might carry them. When replacing the fuel injection hoses which pass...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a faulty pressure relief valve on my 2.4 159. It's the valve that looks like a bolt in the back of the a/c compressor. I'm really struggling to find somewhere that can supply just the valve and not the complete compressor. Does anyone know where I could buy one, or any additional info...

  9. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Quick question. How thick is the washer underneath the oil pump pressure relief spring? Mine is paper thin and wondering if this is factory spec or been replaced for the wrong one some time. (wouldn't surprise me with my car and it's shady history). :thumbs:

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just joined the forum and wondered if anyone could help with a query on an '04 156 query. I'm thinking of invading Belgium (although not on a Wednesday, as I've heard it's shut), but need to avoid attracting any undue attention on the roads until I'm ready to seize the seat of power, which is a...
