Re: Need s some advice on an Alfetta GTV 3.2 V6 24v conversion

Alfaaa1, so I remembered to check the dipstick for you. Basically the bottom of the factory stick you have is the low mark and the notch you see in the pic is the full mark. This will put your oil level 1mm or so below the factory levels. From the stop on the 24v dipstick its 530mm to the full mark ...

Re: Need s some advice on an Alfetta GTV 3.2 V6 24v conversion

Alfaaa1 I'll be tinkering with my 24v tomorrow. I'll measure the dipstick for you and take a photo. If you fill it to the level on your stick you'll be around 1.5 liters too much. Blow a lot of oil through your intake and smoke out the exhaust.

Re: Wheels

Hi Alfaaa1, yes you will def have to roll the wheel arch lips. With 15" wheels you may be able to squeeze them in but I doubt it, very precise offset and wheel alignment will help. I run 245/40/17 on 17x9" rims, standard arch with rolled inner lips. With an offset of approx 20-25mm can't remember ex...

Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

If you've lost that much coolant you would see a rise in the oil level on the dipstick, an extra liter or two in the sump will surely show up on the dipstick. Check the carpet isn't wet. With A leaky heater core or tap, the carpet will soak up quite a bit of liquid.

Re: Engine mounts

75Evo, it sounds like your mount is soft or poor quality. Lightly jack the engine so you can nip it up then settle the engine and do final tighten with open end spanner. Then order a new mount 😉 Jimk, for me it's piece of mind due to available space with the exhaust i built for the 24v. Quite a tigh...

Re: Engine mounts

Yeah RHD, I now use a 147 booster and master cyl, far shorter in length as master mostly sits inside booster. Free'd up some room for the intake manifold and cut a lot of weight in the setup.
Custom adapted pedal box. Now Bmw e36 clutch master sits inside firewall.

I'm located in Aus.

Re: Engine mounts

Thanks! It's coming along

The 164 had a similar arrangement and could be adapted to be very similar.

Re: Engine mounts

12 or 24V
For the 24V I retained the factory bracket and double skinned the inner guard. Used a mount off a 164. Extended with an adjustment in the middle

Re: Which would you choose and why?

I'm pretty sure we're stuck with cast iron for liners, although steel is stronger/tougher per mass, it is more elastic and certainly doesn't have the porosity needed to hold oil within the surface grain structure. With the harmonics and surface temps reached at the ring face im sure you'd loose ring...

Re: Balance issues?

Hi all, an old subject I know but just a heads up! The 4 cyl cars nd v6 have a diff size input shaft sleeve. (The tube the throw out bearing slides on) so if you simply bolt a v6 clutch housing and flywheel assembly onto a twinspark g/box you'll have the larger bearing on the smaller tube. Which cau...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Another option for those interested in keeping the later hi output alternator is to remote mount the filter. It still means drilling and tapping the block but also means the the filter is now easily reached

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

Nice work Kevin, I've often wondered why people use the sei diff considering its weight when the Bmw option is easy to find many ratios and I'm sure would end up lighter if built well. Plus the serviceability and strength

Oil level

Ill start with merry Xmas everyone. I'm curious if anyone has done any serious checks of oil levels while running etc... today while making my windage tray/scraper I notice when I cut the dipstick hole that the factory full mark is dead in the level of the crankshaft counter weights. Obviously the r...

Re: transaxle upgrade's

Hi Gtv-racer, nice to this coming along. Looking good.
Just curious, the needle roller bearing you fitted iinstead of the bronze bush beside reversed gear. Was it an off the shelf bearing of did you need to machine the housing to suit?
