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

Yes , about 7degrees , so it bell housing bush and centre bearing offset . Old theory is as car accelerates it twist the engine into a straighter position . All about comfort . On my race car I made own engine mounts and aligned whole drivetrain up BUT I made an engine brace to stop any movement of ...

Re: Helloo from Serbia! (My 24v conversion)

Hi , it's a shame all your images have gone as was just going back through topic and looking for your suspension pics . Can you post some more of roll cage . I'm interested to see how far back you have the main roll hoop , ie how far is it from the chassis crossmember over the tunnel . I guess it al...

Re: Race Animal ?

It's RWD as you can see engine has been turned around . I think it's using a Jerico box but I will ask him for some pics .

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

This particular road on normal days is not a one way and has a speed limit of 60mph . Thats what it is on most of these country lanes where you have to stop and pull in to let some past . There are two absolutely blind corners on this particular stretch your main concern on normal days is not other ...

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

Had a bit of fun with the track car in a hill climb event in a small village not to far from me called Shere . Its a very pretty place if visiting with an excellent coffee shop . Most of the buildings date from 1450 to 1550 . They make the tower of Pizza look plumb ! It's not a timed event but you c...

Re: transaxle upgrade's

That's an excellent solution . Pinion float from tiny deflection was always th killer under serious abuse on the track . Twin plate unsprung GTV clutch with 0.9mm skimmed off each side of intermediate plate worked well with 350 hp . Lighter than single plate and handle more torque . Clutch bracing -...

Re: How high should I rev my new 3.0?

I never had issues to touch 7k on the track in the 3.0 12v but if you gonna do it constantly on the road and want longevity , synchro to stay good and with those cams probably safe to stay at 6.5 k ( conservative side ) Did you put new rod bolts in as old one don't like it above 7k or nearly 8k :sho...

Re: Crank angel sensor pulley

Here's a pic show how the trigger wheel has had a 140mm recess machine out and pressed onto pulley with four counter sunk bolts . Trigger wheels that are not recessed on do come off . However on the new ones I'm going to laser cut I'm going to make them much lighter with a whole lot of holes cut aro...

Re: Alfa Romeo Championship at Brands Hatch

George's 3.2 is running Omex . The motor has not even had its heads off since it was pulled from a low mileage scrapper thus it's absolutely standard . But it has light flight wheel , long 42mm primaries ( same length jk ) , tapered plenum . Makes 270hp which is about right for standard engine with ...
