    Alfa 3.0l engine cylinder liners.

    Hi All
    Had my Alfa 3.0L engine stripped after the engine went bang, when the throttle potentiometer packed up and the ECU over fuelled it!
    After that engine got a bad habit and started to smoke.
    The engine was modified to 240HP which is not bad for a 12v.
    It has now been stripped and the main reason for the smoking is that the cylinder liners are now in bad condition.

    The reason for the post is that i cannot find any liners for the engine! Even 24v liners that will also fit.

    Ian

    Same company as the ones I listed Griff! Hope you're sorted out soon Ian. Might another donor car end up being cheaper?

    Did you source any Ian? I notice a 3.0V6 24V going through an auction on 14/11 - unfortunately a sportronic but may be a possible donor?

    Re: Alfa 3.0l engine cylinder liners.

    Thanks Guy
    Laurance and i like the look of the liners and piston sets from Westwood's. He is checking the pistons i have for getting the right compression ratio.
    In the end the engine will have an almost full overhaul.
    Going down the 166 route is not on the cards as most engines like the one you just posted have over 130 thousand miles on the clock, and will require and overhaul soon.
    As for parts, the the 12v and 24v are about the same availability.
    The other good reason for sticking with my 12v is the I don’t have to re wire the car again and another exhaust system for the car.
    Don’t forget getting the car off the isle cost over 340 on i transporter.
    Lastly i think the 12v makes a better road car with more linear and lower down torque.
    I hope you all on the big island are coping well with the new lockdown especially Guy with the army doing mass swabbing!

    Re: Alfa 3.0l engine cylinder liners.

    Big Island... not heard it called that before Ian! I'm just outside Liverpool in Sefton so not allowed in for the mass testing. Apart from 3 days in the office and one shop a week we're staying indoors. Trying to stay safe and well.

    Sounds like your liners are sorted then? Hope the rebuild goes to plan & budget!
