Re: 3 liter, 24 valve engine project

Actually, the design is different. On my headers, the pipe exiting #1 cylinder is attached to the collector between the pipes for cylinders 2 and 3 - the pipes cross over one another. In the other design, the pipes are attached to the collector in the same order they exit from the head - no crossin...

Re: 2nd US-Based 3.7 Litre 24 Valve Milano/75!

So - I don't understand it (and yeah - I could have glued a video to my car), but in the days leading up to all of this, we arguably had a bit more to think about than mounting cameras or who would be holding a video camera track-side... Sorry guys - no video of the two 3.7s then I guess. Still, her...

Re:

Thanks Slyalfa, That's exactly the informative type of post that makes this forum what it is. Greg Accept that it won't work - the ring-gear hits the water-pump above it on a Milano or GTV6 12 valve motor... On top of that the Milano/GTV6 pulley has a balance-factor cut-out section at the back wher...

Barry - nice carbi! Glad the fire was stopped. We've had our share of bad ones here too! Is that the little green 2.0 turbo that I see in the background there...? What are you doing to it? Hey, I sent you an email about a friend's 3.7 156 for sale in Pretoria - shoot me a reply please (so that I kno...

Ron has the Ring rented out for a private day on Monday March 10th and he still has some openings - contact him... The upside is that the day before - Sunday the 9th - is also a public day, so driving is a bit cheaper that day and it gives one TWO days to pray and shoot for good weather. Visits to t...

My 6-speed daily driver now (not a GTV6 or a Milano - I know), but still an Alfa (and yeah - a transaxle at that... :lol: ) 17 x 7.5 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2s with 235/40/17s - moved the little thin OEM spacers (normally on the front of these cars), to the rear... I bought these unfinished from TD...

Jes, Kevin - two things that you guys are miscommunication on a bit; 1) Kevin, you were likely applying the ball-joint-flanges directly to the chassis and will run in to problems that way.
