  3. Front Cam lobe missing

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Evening Removed my intake camshaft to sort out the variator and discovered the first intake lobe is gone (as per the photo). The lobe is almost completely round. This is one of the oddest failures of a camshaft i've ever seen, if the valve was seized I would expect the belt to snap before the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  9. Twinspark conversion leftovers wanted

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Has anyone reading this put a twinspark in their 105 and then converted to carbs? I ask because I'd like to get the left over bits - TS plenum, throttle, idle valve and rubber intake . The reason for this is I am quite convinced now I can bolt on an s4 spider manifold, and connect it to a 75 TS...

  11. Aftermarket/upgraded Throttle Bodies for TwinSpark?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all! I'm wondering what aftermarket, or upgraded, throttle bodies y'all have fitted on TwinSpark engines?

    I have a 1999 Phase2 916 twinspark and trying to find out if it has a replaceable fuel filter. I've read a few threads on here but still unclear. Some say it's inside the fuel tank and some say its outside but definitely not in the engine bay after searching. I bought the air, oil and fuel...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've read a lot about 4th gear "swarf" fixes if you can't get it into 4th gear, but what about if it pops out of 4th gear? Mine works fine until about 2 miles down the road (i.e. it's fine when cold) and then it starts popping out for 4th. Changed the gear oil, no noticeable improvement.. Am...
