    wanted: throttle body from 164

    I'm looking for the throttle body assy from a 3.0L 24V Alfa if anyone has one in decent condition to sell?

    Regards
    Paul

    thanks guys - let me know if you come up with something. I had a bit of a snafu the other night and managed to damage the existing one - it can possibly be repaired but a replacement would be a whole lot easier. Yet another reminder not to work on the car late at night when tired....
    (at least I can console myself that a) it's an easily detachable part and b) no hammers were involved)

    Got a 12V - are they significantly different? - fly by wire rather than cable?

    The 24 valve version is cable operated - here's a photo of the culprit I damaged:

    What happened (and I hate to admit it) is that I mangled the threads on the shaft with the lock-nut holding on the cable pulley when I was changing it out for a smaller pulley that I fabricated (to shorten throttle pedal travel distance). Initially, I thought I'd bring it to a machine shop to repair, but when I started dismantling it to remove the shaft, I had second thoughts about forcing it out of the bearings holding it on each side so decided to see if anyone had a complete unit instead. Worst case, I can probably revert back to the repair idea
