I'm not sure where in the world you are, but here's a link to an ad from the Victotrian AROCA forum. It's an old ad but they might still be there (if they're the ones you're after that is) http://www.alfaclubvic.org.au/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,68/topic,771.0/ You can email to: enquiries (at) ...

Some of you might have seen this already as I posted it on the other forum. This is a jig my dad made to re-balance the flywheel on my 75 after lightening and without engine balancing. The original flywheel was mounted and the jig balanced to the flywheel. Then the flywheel was lightened, and bolted...

If it is a problem, you could cut some high density foam to sit in the gap

Speaking of the thermo fan bracket, I think the fan would work better if there was no gap between the radiator core and the fan shroud. Nice job on the car.

That sounds really nice. Is it all 2.25" from where the headers join? How many cats, mufflers?

Thanks Peter you're a great help. I remember reading about VE in David Vizards BMC tuning books. I did a little reading on Helmholtz and a little on Ideal Gas Law, but I need to go over them again. It's interesting stuff. Thanks for the insight on tuning as well. How many load and rpm points are the...

Thanks Peter I really appreciate it. The installation doesn't sound too painful, and tuning shouldn't be too bad once I get the hang of it. It comes with a stim so that's good, and an IAT sensor(to do without the AFM I guess) It's probably a stupid question, but what does VE stand for? I think I kno...

SH Megasquirt questions

Hi guys I am looking at a second hand MS setup. Most of you have probably seen the ad but here it is again: I have a fully built and functional MegaSquirt. It is mounted in a Bosch L-Jetronic case which makes it perfect for L-Jet cars. It also has the flyback board installed in the case for L-Jet lo...

So the head measures 27mm? These suggestions might not be big enough but:

What about front lower inner pivots on the engine bay side?

Or maybe watts linkage centre pivot nut? (kinda hard to miss though :D )

I have a pair of KU31's on my 2.5 75. The other 2 are Kumho 712 which were replaced by the KU31. I bought them because they are one of the cheapest 'sports' tyres while still offering good performance. (1st year apprentices don't get paid enough :? ) I'm really happy with them, although I don't know...

Try Schmidt wheels. They make some that look very similar.
