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

Indeed it did :) In last few months I was still fighting with some issues - car had less power and higher fuel consumpion then it should. Although at first I suspected turbocharging issue, after some digging it turned out to be problem with ignition. Cables on distributor were switched for 1st and 2...

Re: Finding front shock absorber !

Keep in mind that pre-facelift and facelift (Super) version have different front shock absorbers - including upper mounting, etc. The best is to look up the code you need in ePer (for example here http://keyeper.pekidi.com). But the truth is that for Super version it's very hard to get new shock abs...

Re: rubber protection

If you mean those for Super version, they're hard to get... even harder in goot shape. But you can use those from pre-facelift version, they fit and are from harder plastic so they're more durable :)

Replaced lambda sensor (so now it hopefully won't take 15l/100km and does not stink that much :D) and during weekend done approximately 400km. And it did not brake down, yet :) Also finally attended some Alfisti meetup after 1.5 year with own car :)

Re: putting 166 brakes in a 164?

But as AlfaWizz said, those have different bolt pattern (5x108), so unusable on your wheel hubs unless you want to have them re-drilled.

Re: 164 V6 TB Super ECU part no.

Tested two spare speed sensors (inserted into drilling machine) and it's also bouncing... So speed sensor in my car is most likely OK.

Hello guys, @Pinino: Thank you for the link, I will go through it. However it was not misbehaving like this before we removed part of the electric wiring for engine during the engine removal-insert.

It's alive! After 1 year, 2 months and 13 days it has finally returned (so far unoficially as it has to pass MOT) on roads :) 102_7928.JPG Driven around 80km and it's working... fingers crossed.

Seems so - bellow is the picture of one soare valve I have with locks correctly in place and shim on the top. As you can see there's gal between lock and shim (1mm - I know, I have exagerated a bit with those 3-5mm :D but still if valve is shortened by 0.4mm (definetely not more then that) there is ...

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

I did not shorten the shim edges, but! the one I used had quite short edges anyway and between them and locks were roughly 3-5mm of space so I don't believe it could move that much... I shortened it by approximately 0,4mm (before I had clearance 0,25mm with 1,68mm shim, no I have 0,4mm with 1,9mm sh...

Yeah, that's the thing - I also had my valve seats grinded and after that on one valve I could not fit in tolerance (after recommendation I went for a 0.400mm clearance on intakes) with the 1.700mm shims. I had one done to 1.600mm but it was still not good and I did not want to go with to thin shims...
