Re: brake servo

hi Augusto, I'll be replacing the discs alright.. they're worn but i don't think they're warped. The left-rear caliper has started to seize, which i suspect may be related to the master cylinder. The brakes have always been squishy on that car, so if i'm changing everything else it seems silly to le...

brake servo

Hi all.. I'm hoping to get the brakes on the TB sorted out before the summer. I have most of the bits, but i have a feeling I may need a servo.. the brake pedal is very squishy and hisses quite a bit. Replacement servos come with the master cylinder for a cool €800 it seems, and that's on the off ch...

Re: 164 V6 TB Super ECU part no.

..that's not a silly question at all, but yeah the earth strap is ok i think :) Anyhow we sourced an ecu from a GTV TB and she starts and runs.. phew..! Not many people were set up to test this particular ecu, so trouble shooting is awkward enough. Anyhow, the cars has been standing for a while so t...

Re: 164 V6 TB Super ECU part no.

..hello all.

I'm in a similar situation. We suspect the ignition ECU (0 227 400 228) on my TB is a problem as we're getting fuel but no spark.

I can't find anyone to test this ecu though, would anybody have any ideas..?

Thanks :)

Re: 164TB from Ireland

..thanks for all the kind words (and interesting links..!) she's a nice car alright. when i sit into it after the 166 it feels like an older car at first, and for the first 100 yards or so i sometimes wonder why i go to all the trouble. then i find a favorite back road, keep the revs above 3k, and i...

164TB from Ireland

Hello all, great to see so many 'sixtyfours still on the road from all over the world :) I've had four 164s to date.. two tsparks, a 24v, and at the moment a 2.0 V6 TB. The TB was never sold in ireland, so we bought this one in italy and drove her back a few years ago. Ireland is now one of those ca...
