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

Can't find an email address though.

There's a bit of weight you can take out of the front. Battery, AC compressor and condenser, PS, heavy US bumpers, front flywheel(not easy though).

Dad and I just did this with the rack for my 75. To separate the 2 rack parts(tube and housing) initially you need to make a C-spanner with two prongs to undo the nut that holds the 2 parts together. Either this or bash it around with a punch and hammer :( When you separate the main tube out of the ...

Don't laugh, but you might be able to adapt a wall vent from a hardware store. Definitely cheap and probably aluminium so it won't be too heavy. Might not have louvres the full width of the cover but might be able to get one with 2 or 3 sets of louvres that end up the right width.

Originally it would have had a 2.5 12V. Recently, it had a 24V with aftermarket EFI, but now I think it's a 3.3 12V without L-jet. 3.3 is from 3liter crank and 98.5mm bore. If you can find the Lockheed calipers they probably wouldn't cost you an arm and a leg because there are better systems around ...

I'd be surprised if it's up for sale, but I don't know Hugh Harrison so anything's possible. I think it's been returned to 12V power so it probably wouldn't look too unusual under the bonnet. It's such a fantastic looking car, I'd give my back teeth for those wheels. What sort of plans do you have f...

Is there any reason to run an oil reservoir on a converted rack? I'm converting the PS rack to manual for my 75 V6, and have just packed it with grease, though I think I might add some Semifluid or thick gear oil as well. It has all the ports blocked off and all internal seals removed. Shouldn't thi...

Here's two photos of two Australian GpA cars that were raced here. The first is the Ignis car, and the second the Dulux one. Info on the Dulux car can be found in the link I posted in your other brakes thread, and info on the Ignis car isn't quite as well compiled. Some can be found here http://www....

Thanks Nick. Luckily there hasn't been any money sunk into it, or I'd be broke. Getting the plates laser cut is possible but it's a lot of extra hassle when there should be plenty of old mounts around anyway. I've read posts by some people using a DIY poly kit bought from a hardware store, but I dou...

Isn't the thing with the guibos that they control torsional vibraton as well? From what I understand that's why uni equipped TA cars don't really work so well.

Well, I'd love to supply more mounts but no-one seems interested. The mounts are mixed to the same hardness as the originals. From memory I think it's 65-70 on the Shore A scale. To tell you the truth, I'm no expert in rubber and pouring is taken care of by an expert. The job was described to him, i...

The very same thing struck me when I started posting on both forums. This forum seems to be full of the 'boffins' like Barry, Greg, Micke, Mats, MD, JimK etc while the Alfa BB seems to be frequented by your average owner who needs help on how to keep their car going. The two are very diferent yet to...

That belt looks like a 5PK850 which will translate into Bosch/Dayco/Gates part numbers
