Van-dalism

I'm back

I felt this was more apt than adding to the van thread

For those that don't know the van thread...

The van



The latest idiotic purchase sitting in the garden


This one can't be rescued but has a lovely sounding engine

I also plan to transport these


Along with a few other bits and bobs (dash perhaps? )

As per norm, no one bothered trying to talk sense to me

Don't expect an update in the next few days, I'm rather swamped with other stuff, but soon enough

Need to source out some Alfa wiring diagrams, if anyone can point me in the right direction it's much appreciated

Let's see if I can get this one to work...

This is my first question. Im guessing 1.6 based on the engine steady in the top left of the pic. (connects to the drivers strut tower, same part as Bravo 1.2 i think)

Edit, just noticed the Alfa wheels are 5 stud :P

A 01 this one doesn't need the cat! I've been meaning to get Autodata myself a while...

Of course, hence the thread

On the engine this man has it spot on:

Very well spotted, it is indeed a 1.6 I was opting for a 2.0 CF2, I'm in the deep end with a CF3 setup! Didn't particularly want electronic throttle!

Have seen a few Coupés with 5 stud conversions, like this one from fiatcoupe.net. It will be interesting to see if I can do it, I may need driveshafts from a Coupé (156 uses double wishbones iirc)

Sure we'll see how it goes, I'll document it anyway for all to see!

On another note, I went to start the van, only to find the fuel pump has seized... The CF3 setup uses a different tank setup anyway!

In due time

Well thank goodness for a lack of time this time, I finally got one 2.0 T-Spark, CF2

Pictures in daylight alas I have to get the damned thing running first... I'm sussing a dodgy fuel pump... It's in the yard awaiting stripping

That would be excellent stuff, cheers!

The usual cameraphone has been retired for the E5, long live the Supernova!

Pros: Better quality Con: Huge photos

I've began to strip said 2.0



The main attraction


Conveniently, the ECU in the van decided to give up taking it out, it plugs straight into the Alfa's plugs doesn't mean the pins are the same... If they are, happy out!

Then there's driveshafts to think of too.... Hmmm.....

Any light shed on both the ECU's would be a huge help!

Re: Van-dalism

Back in business..... Hopefully things will move faster now!



This will be fun to try and retrofit the driveshafts..... Feck the double wishbones I want to use my coilys!!!


Stay tuned....

De-polluting


Almost ready. Just shafts and the exhaust left to remove, but will do so when it's at the garage door
