Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

That's right, I'm sure it is pins 30 and 87. I tried that - still nothing from the pump!

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I took the relay out and cleaned the contacts. They were pretty clean already. With the ignition on, if I removed the relay and then put it back I could hear/feel the relay ticking so I assume it's OK.

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I'd like to make sure my 'new' Supersprint exhaust fits first, as it looks very slightly different to the current exhaust (but I haven't compared them properly yet). If the new twin-tip one fits OK then I'll post the oval exhaust for sale in this thread. I'm not totally sure what the price would be,...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

My Supersprint exhaust arrived at my workplace today. It really is new old stock - it has some marks and scratches of course but it's otherwise in very good condition. Would anyone be interested in the exhaust that's currently fitted to the car? It's a Supersprint oval stainless backbox as far as I'...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Thanks! I don't know the part number of it, there wasn't one mentioned in the advert. I'll have a look when it arrives. The seller had a few 164 exhausts for sale at the time. I finished the cambelt job at the weekend, so my engine is slowly being put back together. I *might* have the car running th...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I haven't posted on here for a while, sorry about that. The weather has been terrible here since November so I haven't got much done on the car until recently. Today and tomorrow I should be able to finish the cambelt job thanks to Daryl (Alfamuppet on here I think?) lending me his timing tools. I u...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Giri - that's interesting, I always assumed that the Cloverleaf and Q4 were sold alongside each other in all markets. Every day is a school day! MikeCZ - Well, after I had finished laughing at the asking price, I decided I was no longer interested! His price would have been fine if they were in good...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Finalfa - I also forgot to mention about the Ferrari tensioner. It's identical to the Alfa part, but often cheaper. I used one on my old Q4 when I carried out the full engine service and had no problems with it. I bought it from Eurospares here in the UK (Maserati/Ferrari/Lamborghini specialist) but...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I believe the 24v QV and Q4 were built alongside one another throughout the same period, with the 24v Qv launched in 1993 and the Q4 following shortly after. I'm certain the Q4 didn't 'replace' the Qv in terms of production, as otherwise the Qv would have been in production for less than a year. Tho...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Thanks, although all I have done is polish them up a bit - the previous owner had the wheels refinished like this, several years ago. The polished finish had gone dull over time, so all I'm doing at the moment is bringing them back to how they should look. Having said that, I do have experience of r...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I was really pleased with how the wheel and the chrome intake runners look after lots of polishing! I've been thinking about some long-term plans for the car too. I usually end up buying Zender Milanos for my 164s but I really like the original Speedlines in this polished metal finish, so I think I'...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

It does look good and with all the spares it looks like you have made a good purchase 8) Any idea why the car is not starting? You write that it is from 1996, how can that be? Yeah it seems like I have, for othe first time :lol: I haven't tried to start the car yet. It has been in dry storage for 8...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

Th car also came with a large amount of spares, including some rare and very useful parts. I couldn't believe how much was included! The yellow item in the picture that shows the rear seats, is a fully refurbished rear subframe. There's a clutch kit, an exhaust rear section, headlights, brake parts ...

Re: 1996 Alfa 164 Cloverleaf (I'm back...)

I've had the car in my possession for 1 and a half weeks now. Even though it doesn't run or drive, it's still nice to have a 164 again :) Last Sunday, I gave the car its first clay bar and polish treatment. The weather wasn't great so I had to rush a bit, and I didn't have time to do the interior. I...

Welcome back Haydn! Good to have you back in the club. 8) I did follow your thread on your former Q4, indeed that's what happens with those Alfas, you sell them same way as you buy them - on an impulse. :mrgreen: Glad to hear you're recovering and congrats on the purchase, she's a stunner!
