    Hi all Sorry if this is a repost but i have searched with no luck. I would like to remove the plugs from my 1750 to set the gap correctly but nothing i try fits down that bloody hole. Can you guys inform me as to what size you are using

    Thought 'I'll change the plugs'. Not so simple. What on earth spanner are you meant to use? Standard socket not a chance. Found an old draper long box spanner-surely that's going to go in? Nope. I have ordered a Laser 10mm box spanner from Halfords, maybe it will be slightly thinner-walled than...

    Hi, Does any one know the correct ring spanner size for removing the oil filter housing from a Mito 1.6 JTDm engine. It appears to be about 36mm AF but I cannot get a good dimensional reading due to its location. Just finished removal, strip down and bearings replacement of the gearbox...

    I have after market alfa wheels that have a single large central alloy wheel nut and cap. My garage following a "routine" oil change took it upon themselves to check the wheels for tightness. They subsequently over torqued them! Got a puncture today and tried to take the wheel off only to shear...

    Im going to make JT a spanner up, my friend Scotty can make five up at one time - doesnt make it cheaper. If your even thinking about doing a clutch change you WILL need this spanner making up. I wont have been able to do this job without this spanner. Its a must! Tried and tested spanner by...

    Hey hey. The amber spanner (wrench, for our American cousins) warning light has just popped up on my 159's dash. 'm hoping that it just means the motor is due for a service, but I couldn't find confirmation in the handbook. Anyone?

    This thread is going to develop - I just need to get some time to type in all the details. I just have one question that I need answering cus it's killing me.. Should the poly bushes I bought for the spring pan outer (ts version) also fit the the spring pan with rose joints (3ltr)?? What do...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    But definitely been a cleaning and polishing Saturday. Finally got a break in the weather since I got the car, so first chance to give it a proper clean. It'll never be a concours' car (had enough of those in the past) but it looks much better now after a bit of elbow grease. Have fitted some...

    My gf is away for Easter which can mean only one thing: free time to work on the GTV :thumbs: Finally I'll be able to clear out some space in the lounge fitting all the new bits! I've got new discs and pads all round to do, a small bit of rust on one of the fuel lines to treat, plus a new air...

    I thought I'd share this with those of you who have upgraded cams. Obviously the usual disclaimers apply, but if you follow these instructions, you should experience no problems. You might have experienced a substantial loss of torque below 3000rpm when you installed your high-lift, increased...

Obviously for services rendered beer tokens will...

    Hi, Mike2909 and I have been discussing something that's common over on the continent (specifically Holland) which I've had in mind for a while. "Sleuteldagen" (literally 'Spanner Days') are where people get together with someone who shows them how to do simple servicing on their cars - oil...

    Got myself a 3 year old Alfa GT 2.0 JTS. ....and now realising I need to work on the thing. As usual when I try anythingn like this I am stopped at the first hurdle. I think the cover for the engine is known as the "engine dressing". It seems that to get this ff you need a special...
