Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Those are really nice looking adapter plates Kevin!

Guys, I'm wondering does anyone here have cad drawings of the exhaust flanges for the 3.0/3.2 24V? My engine came without the exhaust headers, and I'm having problems sourcing original ones to copy the dimensions from.

Re: Short Shift

Looks nice, but I haven't heard of anyone manufacturing anything shifter related for our cars. As this will be the final modification that I have planned for my 24V project, I was thinking of doing something along these lines; https://i.imgur.com/P3DxSJm.jpg https://i.imgur.com/g9PVNCS.jpg https://i...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'll be looking then for a proper balancing shop to have the flywheel match balanced.

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

@ Davo, could you update your links? The pics aren't showing. I'm little bit confused as to the flywheel installation on the 24V. I have lightened GTV6 2,5L flywheel that I originally wanted to mate with the 3.0 24V. I know Alfa V6's are externally balanced. Now where the confusion starts: Some peop...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Hmm interesting, here's my part. There's only metal gasket sealing it against the block.

What year is your engine? Mine's 2004.

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Hi Kevin,
No grooves or whatsoever on the adapter plate. The stock part is also flat, so I figured it should work. I'm keeping the stock gasket as well, and as you mentioned, I'll probably use a thin coat of silicone to keep everything tight.

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

OIL FILTER. Tapping the block is probably the best way to go. But if one's doesn't have proper tools or conditions to do so, an non-invasive option is possible. I've used original metal gasket that sits between the block and axle support/oil filter assembly on fwd cars, as a template to make an adap...

Re: 166 24v into 116 GTV

Since I have just about finished prepping my 24V to drop into GTV6, here're a couple of pictures of things I've done a little bit differently. SUMP. While the sandwich plate is a nice simple solution, giving away 20mm of ground clearance, was a turn off for me. After some measuring and tinkering, it...

Early vs. late oil pump drive gears

I have a late ('95) 3.0 motor from 164 super, that I wanna drop into my GTV6 while retaining L-jet (think in terms of a weekend swap deal). Thing is I remember (or I'm actually making things up now) hearing about a chap who wanted to do the same with 164 QV engine, but it came out that the gearing o...
