Re: Alfa 164 2.0V6 TB Super (1995) - MikeCZ

Some furter update. About a month ago I have pulled out the fuel pump to cleanup the pump basket. At the same time I have replaced the connectors on hoses going to the lid on the tank, as someobody demaged them - one of them was even missing the release ring, so I had to cut them out. The new connec...

Re: Alfa 164 3.0 V6 12V QV "Q2" project

Really great work! As for the gearbox mount, the one from TS fits without modifications, plug-n-play? because I when I was doing the work on my car I was not able to find the V6 mount at all... and it's only old mount in my engine bay :D

Re: Refurbishing the QV Rims

Really nice work :) I will hopefully get a hand on a set of those wheels for myself in two weeks (I was hunting for them - for a reasonable price - for some time) so I guess I will be undergoing this process too :)

Re: Q4 4WD warning light on instrument cluster

Maybe you could check if you have light bulb for Q4 warning light in the cluster at all - for example when I disassembled mine, I found out someone removed bulbs for airbags :roll:

Re: 164 TS From France

Unfortunately those are the typical "rust week points" - jacking points and the rear axle beam. Because those jack points are just welded on the flook, there's no reinforcment and when it starts to rust, you risk to get exactly such holes in the floor. That's why it's recommended not to jack car on ...

Re: Alfa 164 meet summer/2020 - Czech Republic

It did. So far this event is cancelled/postponed until... who knows when. With the current situation the organization would be almost impossible and also attendance would be much lower.
So let's wait for a better times :)

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

I guess it won't be the case, but when I was rebuilding mine, I had similar problem. I doublechecked all connectors on the way, relays, etc. and still did not had it working - on cable leading to the pump there was only small voltage. But what fixed it was replacement of the crankshaft position sens...

Re: Front shocks

If you won't be able to get new one then refurbishment is the only option. Guys here in Poland refurbished those electric shock absorbers in company in Poland and were satisfied. There's no other option, it won't fit from any other car. Also pre- and post-facelift have different front shock absorber...

Welcome amongst 164 owners!
To be honest, that rear frame does not look too well... you will have some work to do on that car.
But wish you good luck with the restoration, hopefully it will be worth it :)
