Re: JK's v6 book

Richard Jameson (from the other forum) got good results using standard, but I imagined modified 12v manifolds; limitations due to class of competition he was competing in?

Re: Front Hub Nuts

2) Because I'm a tight-arse, I welded a small strip of metal to the missing / damaged flange section of my nuts(!)

Re: v6 clutch release bearing

I'm pretty convinced the Sachs pressure plate is not unique to this car. I am thinking circa 70's Porsche 911 or may be a VW. The release bearing I can get welded / repaired but my car is a daily driver and a need a replacement pretty snappy.

lower gear lever gaiter

I am after the bottom one, where can I get one from? Is this common with say a 105 Alfa or other Alfa, or anything else?

75 3.0 litre back box

.. it's very heavy but seems to be well made, had it now for over 12 years. Anyway, what kind of design is it - absorption, reflection or other design?

Re: Slave cylinder v6

I was hoping it would be a cheap common part shared with other cylinder manufacturers such as Lockheed and other UK / EU suppliers. I think it's 3/4" / 19mm and I hazard a guess it's a common seal.

Re: GTV6 / 75 gearbox mounts

Thanks. There is a certain Alfa spares dealer in the UK that tells me they are the same. I know the 75 3 litre and GTV6 mounts are bigger then the TS and Alfetta 2.0 litre but I am not too sure if the larger one for both cars was the same.

HBE, Alfalholics, RSR Anti-roll bars

.. anyone have experience of these kits? I like the cruising capabilities of the 75, which I rate very highly and don't want to ruin by a "crashy kit".

Re: '75 clutch pedal assister thingy

yeah been feeling like that for a while..

Back to the clutch.. can't say it feels heavier at the bottom. I wanted to reduce the travel and the weird travel arc but the the assister was causing the pedal to stick down so I took it off.

'75 clutch pedal assister thingy
