Need s some advice on an Alfetta GTV 3.2 V6 24v conversion

Post by Alfaaa1 » Wed Mar 23, 2016 1:52 am

Hi guys,
Starting to Do Modifications to the 3.2 to make it fit in the Alfetta GTV.

Has any got photos of the modification required on the lower engine oil sump aluminium plate.
It would be great to get some ideas. :D

Just modify the original sump on the 3.2 to fit in 116 . Much easier and no leaks around front of pulley . Your only 18mm closer to Tarmac than standard sump in 12v .
See the links here of three different ways .

Thankyou Kevin,

Three good Modifications that can be done to the engine oil sump. :)

Would you know know the gap between the oil pump pick up to the lower part of the oil sump on a standard Alfetta gtv6.

I just need to do this mod and then I will fit the 3.2 in the Alfetta GTV. :D

Next time I take sump off on spare motor I will measure but you would want it to be high enough above the sludge that collects ( probably not in your case ) and also clear any moisture that settles below the oil if car is standing for long time ( but probably not in your climate either ) .
I might have sump off next week .

Does anyone have a modified lower 3.2 Busso V6 engine oil sump to suit an Alfetta GTV6 they would like to sell.

Just fitted the V6 engine in the car , no stress on the engine mounts all fits great, But have just noticed that the alignment of the engine front is over to the left hand side. Is that normal.

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 the engine .
Link to where I aligned engine up

Hi KevinR,

Have not got that far yet as I had to do some work on the Alfetta body.
I just wanted to sit the V6 in to see if it fitted ok, I am going to remove the V6 now and paint the cars fire wall engine compartment. Just was worried it fitted in to easy and it was over to the LHS.Please refer to the photo.

Regards
Alfaaa
