Re: Radiator size dimensions?

I know this is an old thread, but did anyone measure the horizontal dimension of this aluminum radiator? The reason I ask is that the Alfetta 4Cl radiator seems a little narrower at the bottom than on the top. Is the GTV6 that way too, or is it a perfect rectangle like this aluminum radiator? I'm wo...

Re: Clutch spline count and shaft Dia?

I can find clutch builders. I was just curious if anyone here has done it before.

Re: Clutch spline count and shaft Dia?

Has anyone sent their old hub out to some of these custom clutch manufacturers to have the disc and material of your choice riveted to your hub? I have kept every one of my old clutches (2 maybe) because I just couldn't throw them away. I now think it was good to have kept them.

Thanks,

Re: TS ignition map

Bumping this. Anyone have any maps? If so, a snip of the view would be nice.

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

Finding a way to save it all for archiving and searching is definitely something you should research. I applaud you if you find a way before the closing. In the interim, if there is a way to modify the code of this site to allow the view of all posts of a thread on one page, people can print the pag...

Re: RS Racing suspension rear springs - Coil Spring Isolator

I got them a year or two ago at either Alfaholics or Classicalfa in the UK. I can't remember which one right now and can't find the paperwork. They are available anyway. It's the lower ones that are no longer available. I made some lower ones out of polyurethane sheets as they are not flat/step, but...

Re: broken clutch disc

Where are you located? I just acquired one disc that was advertised as for Alfetta and it arrived today and is 190mm wide. My Alfetta is 215mm wide. The hole and the splines seem to be the same - 7/8" hole (22mm) and 19 splines. I've been searching high and low for the reason and I think I've determ...

Re: Selector Rod Centering Spring Broken

Just to close the loop on this, I was able to find a spare rod with a good spring but other parts were damaged. I brought both to Merrit Carden and he was able to drive out the retaining loop and put the good spring in my rod. It can be done. As I watched him do it, I realized that anyone with good ...

Re: Suspected clutch rattling noise

Very old post and resolved for the initial poster.

Any chance that this little object on the front of the driveshaft would also cause a rattling noise? Is it the locating bearing mentioned a few posts ago.

Re: Alfetta wheel offset

Yes, that's true. I'm happy with my wheels and the original poster xrad, is happy with using 35mm ET, so it doesn't matter. I'll check the posts you are refering to and see what it says. By the way - 18 Racing is just down the road from me. I haggled with them for 6 months, 4 years ago, for them to ...

Re: Alfetta wheel offset

Hmm... I'm going to have to do my own research to convince myself of those high offset values. Those are like FWD figures. Hard to believe.

Re: Alfetta wheel offset

I would still disagree with the Alfetta specs. Mine came with factory (not dealer) wheels at 22mm offset, as well as every stock Alfetta I've seen in California. Maybe Alfa had different specs for different areas, who knows.
