Re: Flywheel Lock

thanks guys,

I took a electric impact gun to it.... pulled the trigger for about half a second, and it was off! I guess I really over thought this one.
lets hope the rest of the tear down and rebuild goes just like this! :roll:

ps. Mats, 41mm was right.

Re: Flywheel Lock

thanks Mats, i'll give that a try.

if that doesn't work, is there any harm in wedging a pipe between some of the flywheel bolts and the skid it's sitting on?

also, what size socket do I need for it?

thanks

Flywheel Lock

Hi all,

I'm just about to start tearing apart my 24v. the engine is sitting on a pallet ready to be put up on the stand, but i want to crack the crank bolt loose before mounting it to the stand.

whats the best way to lock the flywheel to keep the engine from turning over?

Thanks

Re: Track Car Preperation

I made a post in the suspension section, talking about converting to coil overs. Here is the link: http://alfagtv6.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4478 as for the rest of my track prep. I found a source for drop spindles, I am thinking of going with a 1.1 drop (my options being 0.8", 0.9", and 1.1")...

Re: My rebuild!

nice build! the car looks great!!!

Quick question about the PACE knuckle risers. how do they compare with flipping the LCA? Does this give the same effect? It looks a lot easier to install, and seams to be reversible if needed.

thanks, and keep up the steller build!

Re: 3.2 conversion parts in North America

3.2 conversion parts in North America

Does anyone know where to find 3.2L parts in North America, or places that will ship to Canada?

I have a 3.0 24V that is already converted to RWD, but will be opening up the bottom end, and want to look into converting the engine to a 3.2.

Thanks a lot!

Re: TS transaxle into GTV

I'm also looking to do this.
I just swapped out my transaxle from my 84 GTV6 for a freshly rebuilt one from a Milano platinum.

Will a sending unit amplifier from a later GTV6 work?

Re: most reliable way to get a 330-350HP motor

i think this sounds like a plan, i can save the money on boring or going 3.2 and put it into the supercharger!

its time for the research to begin, if anyone has good supercharging tips, please feel free!
