Thinking a bit of a slow burn on re assembly. Giving myself 12 months. While the body was away (18 months) I spent a small fortune on parts and refurbished just about everything I could. Hoping to finish to a good usable classic rather than concourse.

Welcome aboard MatB and it appears from your collection you have definitely been bitten by the Alfa Romeo bug. As I am located in Sydney, I hope to catch up on National events such as Auto Italia 2018 or Alfesta which is being hosted by AROCA NSW in 2018. It would be fantastic if the white 105 is ready in time to take it to these events around Easter.

Good afternoon Alfa forum,
Thought it was about time to register as I've been floating about as a guest for awhile and it's high time I got involved. 
Currently have this
And the major project which is only just arrived back from the body shop

It's a 1971 1750 series 2  in Bianco Spino, black interior
Engine and gearbox are ready

Just requires full assembly, how hard can that be.

Thank you, I have a spot, please send me an email as per earlier post so I can communicate with you.
Hi Jord
For information purposes only, the 6 speed auto gearbox fitted to your 159 JTD 2.4L is manufactured in Japan and is fitted to a multitude of makes/models. Attached below is a link to the wiki site on the transmission details. From what you described initially and the fault disappearing the next day, I would be very surprised that a major g/box component has failed. I would just wait and see what the Alfa guys diagnose when hooked up to the cars computer.
This is it. Remember that the price you see includes VAT but not freight to Australia. A phone call will sort that out, they should be able to email you a quotation for a tax-free valve body and FedEx to your door.

Based on similar jobs with French cars and the same transmission, I'd suggest another thou-and-a-bit, for R&R and fettling - if it is the faulty item.

I just had a quick surf in a free moment. Looks like you have an AWTF-80SC tranny.

If you need a new valve body for it, I've found "One Stop Gearbox Shop" to be cheaper than local agents and very quick in the post.

Thanks very much, it's getting looked at tomorrow. Would you have an idea of cost of the unit?

Bummer, I was hoping there would be a simple solution as mine are broken as well and I wanted to take some off a spare car to replace. Didn't realise it was going to be a difficult job :(
