Re: AlfaGtv6.com - CLOSING TIME - January 31st 2019.

Hello, I'm mostly a lurker, but it will be a great shame if another forum has to close. It is a companion in my bookmarks, but I didn't find the time to post regularly. A ton of information will be lost if no solution is found. Thank you for your commitment thus far! Hopefully you'll change your min...

Re: Flipped ball joint LCA

Finding this thread here made me happy, as this is currently something what is the last step for my car set-up. And perhaps there have been some new advances regarding this. The wishbones of my car are currently also pointing upwards due to lowering and fitting 30mm torsion bars and 60kg rsr springs...

Re: Resevoir Cap Specification

There are many different ones available. Just start looking for one with 0.7 or slightly greater. Obviously running a too high pressure can cause damage to the engine or other parts of the cooling system. Newer cars run much higher pressures (1.2 etc) so I think best is 1 or close to. This is the si...

Re: A/C installation in a non A/C spec GTV6

So an update. I ran halfway during this summer into some trouble. One of my radiator fans died. So I bought a second hand 156/166 jtd unit, welded some mounting points to it. http://i376.photobucket.com/albums/oo209/Melvivio/Alfa%20Romeo%201980%20GTV6/IMG_5186.jpg The result is a much more stable wa...

Re: POWAAA STEERING!

Very fun and good conversion! When I shoot my steering rack to bits this might be a good conversion for my luxury salon-car.
