  1. 146 Jack, Spare and wrench placement

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi all, could anybody with a 146 (or maybe a 145) post a picture of how the jack, handle and spare are sitting in your boot? I just bought a 146 Ti as a mini restoration project and everything was just flung in loose. I can't figure out for the life of how it all locates properly. Thanks.

  4. Maintaining an impact wrench

    General Motoring Discussion
    Treated myself to an air powered impact wrench today; our motor club workshop has a big compressor and airlines all over the place, but sadly the air tools are all in shocking condition. Question is, how do I maintain it? I know to oil it, but what oil should I be using? There's also a small...

    I'm planning to change oil in my Giulietta QV 1750 Tbi, it will require a 32mm socket. Will a normal socket do the job or must I have a low profile 32mm filter wrench socket?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Trying to change the cat, but just not got the strength and rusty nuts. I've not got rusty nuts, the car. :D Anyone recommend an impact wrench or similar tool? I don't want to blow hard earned cash to find out I've shopped one with not enough power or doesn't fit.

    General Motoring Discussion
    I need help choosing which is better. What would you guys recommend? An air impact wrench and compressor or an electric impact wrench? They are both around the same price and I can't decide which to go for. Thanks

  10. Long wrench - chinese???

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    waste of money or worth a try? wrench extendible up to 500 mm. Would this chinese rubbish break within a second on car bolts? (bend like plastic) about 4 quid (toolrich) compared to a quality mexican wrench costing about 40 quid here...

  14. Torque wrench doubt

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I recently bought a 1/2 inch torque wrench (about 24 inches in length). Now most of my sockets are 3/8 (except the large 17-30mm ones) and I have an adapter 1/2-3/8. Now for example when I use the wrench to tighten the head bolts with a 3/8 socket but adapted to the 1/2 torque wrench so I need...
  15. Torque wrench

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Apologies if this is a really dumb *** question. I am changing the cam cover gasket on my TS following sophos9's excellent guide in the How To section. It says to use 6/7 newton metres on the torque wrench when refitting, but my torque wrench seems to start at about 28nm. Am I misunderstanding...
  16. micro tip - wheel wrench

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This might be a no brainer. If your Alfa wheel wrench surface finish is like mine it's as good as a rasp file. If you want to keep your alloy in the wheel nut sockets scratch and abrasion free just wrap a couple of layers of gaffer tape round the wrench from the socket end along and past the...
