My 164 24V Super - the story continues

Post by Ladin164QV » Mon Apr 24, 2017 6:00 pm

So as i write in Topic with my previous 24V QV, i sold her in 2013 - because i have lost my head for e36 M3 Cabrio, and then 3 years regreted it (M3 is good car, but i missed 164).

Last year before Alfisti Christmas meeting in Prague they (friend + wife) managed to secretly buy a 1992 (one of first 24v) 164 Super - color Nero601, which was near Stuttgart in storage for 17 years (!), she drive until timing belt snaped in 126000km in 1998, and after that was unregistered and in garage. She has broken rear windshield (which they replaced) and they replaced also whole engine from 1995 Super, Rosso Orient leather with a layer of mold everywhere inside :D . Still wasnt running but this is another story.

There is a video from that action, i was really very surprised and happy - they give me the keys and car was outside on trailer - they really aren't normal :lol:

So how make it work...

First, most important, steering wheel from QV :mrgreen:

Image

Fuel pump totally KO, like from Titanic...

Image

New spark plugs, crankshaft sensor (no spark and no fuel before) and cleaned injectors, cleaned brake calipers (rear brakepads totaly stuck).

Image

Then it runs and we can go move outside garage for cleaning...

Interior was great mess... Also she was in her short history rear-ended, and this isnt perfectly repaired, paint isnt also good, so i decided to make her mechanicaly OK - not for show and shine - and she has a nickname - ZOMBIE.

Image

Better... There were also original carpets, nice...

Image

Some not-peeling interior parts...

Image

Intake runners from GT 3.2 - to match engine QV specs - 171kW

Image

H&R springs from previous QV - owner wants original springs

Image

Front suspension renewed...

Image

New bearings for noisy fan...

Image

Discovered why with empty aircon is compressor always on..

Image

Then we got registered in CZ, and some deeper cleaning...

Image

Nice place to be...

Image

And last summer, we go with friends to Austria - Grossglockner - no problems at all 8)

Image

Then this winter new bearings to belt pulleys and alternator, clutch hose, brake hoses, more polishing, new speakers etc... Now I hope she is ready for trip to Milano 164 meeting this June - to meet another 164 in her birthplace :D

Fresh foto with polished rims:
