    Quick question, was the QP3 fitted with a specific radio from the factory? or did the dealers fit whatever was available at the time?

    Thank you.

    I have a new old stock distributor cap for a Qporte 3. I owned an '84. Does anyone need a new cap?

    Hi to the QP III group ! I am struggling with electrical issues related to the Tedel 102 which was blown. I read with great interest the posts of William Abraham in 2013. His car had a blown Tedel 102 resulting from a loom faults of some kind. Then a local elctrician tracked down the underlying faults which were causing the box to blow. However William does not detail the fault in the loom it would be very useful to have this info. It William reads this message thank you for your reply ! Kind regards, Alex Camoletti (Geneva. Switzerland, 1985 4.9L auto Marrone)

    Am starting a rebuild on 1 or 2 1984 Quattroporte 3. Looks like hood leaks have let water into the cylinders via the carburetor throats. The water goes right through the cylinder and ends up in the crankcase oil. Of course I have stopped this from happening but now have to start engine. Starter didn't work, so I want to rotate engine manually. Other engines have a large nut holding the pulley on the front of the engine. This engine has the pulley bolted on with 4 smaller bolts. How can i rotate engine manually? Belt wrench around the pulley? Big nut welded on a flat plate that bolts to the pulley using the 4 existing bolts? Appreciate any advise.

    If all the spark plugs are out, the belt wrench will do it. The proper way would be to fabricate a plate that would bolt on to two of the pulley bolts. This might be redundant, but i would spray PB Blast or some such rust penetrant down each cylinder, especially if water has been hanging out inside the engine and cylinders.

    Good luck!
