the adapter plates have still quite some work to fit propely .

to inlet runners are skewed and not in line.

 

so that needs a lot of after thinking.

 

 

last Friday I bought a ecu for the engine. 
She will run on a DTA S80 pro ecu.

last week I have bought another small project. a very poor looking gtv 3.0 24v

the car getting a little refurbished and cleaned. then another few months driving around and resell it.

After a bit of tinkering she runs again.

Luckily it wasn't a leak headgasket as the previous owner claimed.

 

There was s too long radiator hose mounted that a kinked in front of the radiator, leaving the radiator withoud coolant flowing through it.

which resulted in an engine that overheated and a radiator the couldn'd handle the pressure.

 

After changing the radiator and cooling hoses she runs perfectly again.

 

things to do to get it back road legal.

som smal parts of the brake line's 

powerflex in the supporting arms at the rear.

new supporting arms at the front

new tyres 

timing belt

Good job! I bet a simple wash and some polish would make it look 10x better too B)

After that was built everything back together I still had a little problem with the circulation to the coolantreservoir 

When that was fixed it was all good with the cooling of the engine. 

 

 

When some on polished for our Dutch annual 916 ride. only under the hood. the exterior needs polishing but that is for an other time.

What did you do with the fuel pipes? Only painting with a golden colour? Or is it a special coating?

 

Best regards

It's just chrome paint only then in the color gold. 

 

It only has 1 disadvantage. 
It is not restistens against fuel. with the head gasket Exchange there is some fuel leaked over it so I need to spray them over again....

in recent months i ditn't do many on the gtv or spider. 

with the gtv I have don a few events. and for the spider another brake upgrade from stoch to 305mm and now for the 330mm brakes. 

 

last month I shoud drive with a friend in a alfa 90 to Italy.  but on the day of departure is the master brake cylinder died. 

so we had another car. his alfa gt jtd had broken drive shafts. My 33 is already 2 months quietly for  waiting for som welding and apk(mot)

the spider still has no engine. 

 

so the gtv was the only option. 

the trip went very well. no problems or anything with the gtv. 

only written of som parts....  tyres brakes and the front suspension arms

These stones on the third photograph, as punishment did somebody complete it? By the shield of 330 mm and wheel rims of 17 inches, perhaps to be problem with the space for weights for balancing the wheel.

3 mm is enough, if the rim weights can move between the caliper and Rim can I see no problems. 



at this moment the spider is for a short stray at home because the shed gets a new roof. 
unfortunately i'm unable to sell the gtv. No body want to pay a fair price. 
so also no update's for the spider.

last weekend was the club day of the Dutch 916 club.
I was just here at the start of the ride. have the ride itself not ridden since the cooling fan at the break.

at the end of August I go to spettacolo sportivo on circuit park assen.

 

and after that its back in the shed.  wiring to adjust for the drop down function of the Windows

and a little conservation. the past 2.5 years, the body didn't survived that well. some small rust
