Re: Clutch Release Bearing - Removal

Cheers guys. Spoke with Kevin.. was very simple: Unbolt pressure plate, turn it upside down so it's resting upon the release bearing and push down a little. The circlip holding the bearing to the pressure plate becomes easily removable and the bearing lifts (or falls!) out. I took some measurements ...

Clutch Release Bearing - Removal

Hi all, Hope you're all keeping safe and well in these strange times. Seeing as we all have lots of time at home at the moment I thought I'd change my clutch, but have run into a problem - mainly with my own lack of knowledge ! Question - What is the correct method for removing the Alfa pull type re...

Re: TS ignition map

Nothing for a twin spark I'm afraid, only for a 24v 3.0 or 12v 3.0 - both are just single plug engines

Re: Supercharger help please

Hi Rob, The merc 230 sounds like a decent option, casing looks compact which is useful to maximise use of limited under bonnet space. This sort of thing rebuilt :- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Eaton-M62-Supercharger/253407131016?hash=item3b003df588:g:qZMAAOSwCtJaddox I quite enjoyed making my kit, see...

Re: Supercharger help please

Hi Rob, Not sure what country you're in but 62 series supercharger units are relatively common from various car manufacturers.

Re: Headlight lamps

Hi Kevin, how's things. I presume you are already running all 4 lights through relays and are looking to upgrade the dipped units? The "mains" can easily take 100w bulbs, but I never found a truly satisfactory solution for the "dips" using the factory lights. The design flaw seems to be that the bul...

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Hi Kev,
I don't have anything much planned Alfa wise this year as I've quite a lot going on with family weddings, holidays and such.

If Alex holds another open day I'll be there though :-) Any suggestions welcome.
