Where's your sense of adventure, I mean what could go wrong?

It's not like it could burst into flames or anything . . . . . . . . .   ;)

Thanks Bazz, rest assured I would never be tempted to have a go myself on my GTA with either solder or epoxy!

As John has mentioned, the strut towers on your 156 are already well braced by the firewall, and unless you intend taking to the racetrack and going 10/10ths at it, I think any effect you would notice in road going use would be more of a placebo.

I recon you'd be better off spending the money on taking your wife out somewhere nice for dinner and making her feel special. (well at least more special than the Alfa). You just know those brownie points are going to come in useful next time you really need to spend money on the Alfa.

Buy/Swap/Sell [Announce ONLY] / Selling 1976 Alfetta 1.8 sedan
« Last post by xb-60 on August 08, 2022, 04:47:18 PM »
I am selling my much-loved Alfetta 1.8 sedan that I have owned for 40 years (I am its second owner).
The Alfetta’s build date is 6/1976.
The original 1.8 litre engine was removed at around 210 000 km because of a leaking rear main seal. The car is still on its original clutch, so the car has been treated well.
I purchased the Alfetta in 1982 with 32 000 km "on the clock". It has now recorded  around 245 000 km.
The car has replacement Alfetta front seats (grey, courtesy of Phil Storr) and the rear seat and door trims are the original cream vinyl, all in good condition.
Wheels are 14”x6” alloys.
I fitted A/C in 2003 (would need re-gassing).
The engine currently in the car was purchased from Jim Stratmann (was originally fitted to his Alfetta GTV, the engine having approximately 10 000km recorded). It is a 2 litre engine, has now done around 45 000km since the rebuild during Jim's ownership.
The car’s colour is Posillipo Blue, and the paint is in good condition. There are several small rust spots, however for an original non-restored 1976 Alfetta, the body is in very good condition.
The car has been on Club Conditional Registration since 2006

Asking price is $12 000

Finalised the tyre setup today. Decided on 225/50R16 tyres on the back, 205/50R16 tyres on the front. Wheels are Borbet Type A 16x7.5 ET30, centre caps still to go on. Don't fret about the air gap over the front tyres, there's still 40kg+ weight to go over that front axle.
 
Overall diameter of the rear wheels is larger than a standard GTV6 but is offset by my lower 4.1 diff ratio. Gearing ends up slightly lower than a SZ and quite a bit lower than a 75 Potenziata, both with similar power to what I'm expecting to achieve...maybe somewhat less  ;D

hadnt considered the adjacency of the strut towers to the firewall for the 156, they are quite close.
Might wait a while for members to comment before spending the a Lira.

Another milestone achieved with the fitting of the stainless steel exhaust system I purchased from EB Spares way back in April 2020! As I've come to expect nothing is straight forward, with the centre section needing some massaging to clear the clutch master cyllnder hose and the cross member supporting the torsion bars. The rear section also needed to be cut and reassembled to ensure the rear muffler landed in the correct spot and tailpipe lined up with the cutout in the Zender bumper.

It took the guys at Trackart Custom Fabrication a day to finesse it all, not helped by the unfortunate situation where the exhaust was built with metric tubing whilst we still use imperial tubing. Very happy with the result and looking forward to hearing it in action soon!

This now draws to a close all underbody work. Now to turn our attention to finalising the engine wiring loom, fitting the fuel injection and air intake, fitting the cooling fans and hitting the dyno!
