Rob, as I mentioned, Reproduction water pumps, the good ones, are less expensive than mine, but for those that want or need an original, I make even really horribly corroded ones, new, using original parts.
I usually suggest the good reproductions first, but owners should SAVE original cores.

Gordon, I am sure the good reproduction ones are good, but a good original perfectly restored one is great! Thanks again, Very Happy.

Bosch distributor VJ 4 BR 35

So I have been searching for the correct distribution chart for my Veloce Bosch VJ 4 BR 35 and I found this to be very interesting. I wrote an email to Bosch who put me onto a Bosch Classics division which can provide info on vintage Bosch parts. I was happy to learn that such a division exists and within days I had my distribution chart! Amazing. Pic attached

Giuliav,

The dizzy looks fantastic; I may have to rethink the 123 option.

On another note, I have been communicating with the Oklahoma Tax Commission in an attempt to have my title corrected from a 1966 AR Giulia Spider to a 1964 in keeping with the build date.

I've sent a copy with logo of the email I received from Marco Fazio, but they say they need a document on letterhead to prove official.

Did your response to your inquiry come as an email or in hard copy printed format?

Thanks

Ray

Hi Ray, thanks for that. As for Alfa, they sent it as an email and I asked if I could have it on letter head but they said it is not available yet. They also said the service would be available soon. I would think you could print out a color copy and hopefully it would be acceptable. I would call Gemma at Centro documentazione and ask her her help with that.

Fispa 83 Fuel Pump restoration

Finally done restoration of my Fispa 83 Fuel pump. Still debating whether to go with the electronic fuel pump or stay with my Fispa? Any suggestions? Pics attached Restoraton courtesy of Ed Fall (vintage werks)

Some depends on how you will use the car. My Ausca Alfa has only and electric pump. Ferrari, years ago, realized fuel evaporates from hot Webers, and considerable cranking may be necessary to fill the 3 or more float bowls. They added "Autoflux", an electric pump you turned on to fill the Webers before starting, or used WITH the mechanical pump on very hot days to avoid "vapor-lock" issues.
For a non-race Alfa car, an electric-ONLY pump is wired into the ignition switch. Ignition "on" pump runs. If you like the mechanical pump, BUT don't want to kill your starter cranking to fill float bowls, add an additional switch that allows the electric pump to be turned on and off like Ferrari, prior to starting, or in hot driving IF there are heat related fuel delivery issues.

Fergat wheels and Pirelli tires off to be restored

Fergat wheels and Pirelli tires are off and going to be restored. I have read several times that some like Borrani because they are a harder wheel. My car originally came with Fergat. Any reason to switch? Pic attached

Actually, the Fergot are a bit harder and heavier than Boranni. Many Borrini wheels no longer exist as when stock wheels were required in racing, the preferred Boranni's were destroyed. I trashed a lot of them. The were softer, and bent rather than fractured like Fergot. Fergot might have been better for many street applications. Somewhere in my photo files I've pictures of failed Fergot's. TODAY, both are just fine for street use.
This is only my opinion from my own experiences.
