    Started tearing into the Alfa tonight. Was originally planning on a clutch change as well as rebuilding the rear transaxle and swapping mounts and bearings.

    Removed the exhaust and see the driveshaft flex donuts are starting to crack. Well add a driveline rebuild to the mix.

    OHH, and that minor oil leak at the rear of the engine is now seeming bigger and more pronounced. Add in a engine pull to the mix.

    Gonna be a long winter in the garage. A picture after tonight's mayhem.

    This was a little odd. :wtf::wtf: You were triggered by “ok”. Lol.

    I just replaced my starter on my truck this weekend, and replaced the door hinges on the driver door. Not sure what the little pony is. Did you just pwn me hard.

    It was a line from Steve Martin in one of his stand up routines. I will see if I can find it

    Just realized I have zero posters on my garage walls. Also you need a hydraulic lift imo.

    I do need a lift. It is on my list of things I need. A rear end drop is a few hours work and requires not much in the way of special equipment.

    But now with the engine needing to come out, it would be tits for aiding in dropping the exhaust and drive line

    They are so incredibly handy. I said you need it cause looks like you like to work on vehicles. I myself don’t really like to. But I’ve rode dirt bikes my entire life and always have to jack with them. Obviously don’t need a lift for that. These days most vehicle stuff I just end up paying my guy.

    My newest purchase I want to get is a new side by side. Either a rzr or ranger.

    Well I actually had posted ok thinking it was a different thread. So when I saw this response it was funny. How long have you had that car. Any pics of the inside. Curious if it’s white on red or red on white.

    I don’t know much about the alfa Romeo except I’ve seen the older kind like yours modified at race tracks.

    I have no idea if they’re still cool after Chrysler bought them. Chrysler can mess up stuff. See jeeps.

    Although I still like the dodge rams to this day. Even though @banksy and @Capn Crud hate them.
