Hi Redmerlin,
I already just replied to you, but I'm not sure that it went through, as when i pushed the Reply button, it deleted itself! So, here it goes again...
I had said that I am a neophyte with Alfa Romeo parts, and don't have any idea what you might think this 2600 intake manifold is worth, but if I can trust your opinion that it is in good shape except for the welded up crack on the bottom edge (do you know how that crack got made?---and, could you tell before you had it repaired whether it was badly corroded inside in that area?---can you even see into the water jacket of the manifold in that area? Anyway, I would be willing to offer you $1000 for it on your word that it is good usable condition, but would like to talk personally with you regarding payment methods and shipping, etc. I could call you at the time and number that you give me, as I tried to send my phone number to you in an earlier reply, but the system kicked it back saying that I could not include phone numbers or email addresses, so I don't know how to work with this system, but hope you do!
So, let me know the next step...
THANKS!
JIM

FWIW, I paid about USD 1,800 for my Weber manifold is similar condition (and also missing the bar for the throttle linkages) several years ago. Weber manifolds are about as rare as Unicorns, but I heard of one that sold for about $400-450 last year. The exorbitant costs and rarity of these manifolds are one of the main reasons why Solex manifolds are being converted.

Best if we move to email to discuss - I will send a PM with my email address. N.B I do have the throttle shaft and levers if required

Hi Redmerlin,
Sounds good to me, I'll await your reply with a PM (which I still don't even know what this stands for..."Post Message"?)
Thanks!

Weber Manifold

Well it looks like the manifold is up for sale again - I have waited patiently and pm'd the board member I agreed a price with a couple of times for payment but I have had no response in 3 months . So I guess it is reasonable to move on. If I have missed something a pm or mail please let me know . Price is now £1500 which was offered before. I may try listing on ebay to get a confirmed buyer. I am looking for funds for my new alfa 1750 race car project. I do have original carbs to go with the manifold
