    Where in East Texas are you? I grew up in Kilgore (and got out as fast as I could), and there was only one Alfa in town- a Niki Lauda model Spider.

    Hi Gigem75,

    I was reading your thread "one off bucket list, valve seats", and i wanted to confirm what size valves you are using with those seats ?
    I am thinking about doing a 4 angle valve seat on my 2L head, but with 45mm, 45 degree intake valves.

    Either way, can you let me know what results you had with the 4 angle seats ?

    Hi Gigem75,

    I was reading your 73 GTV restoration thread and on post #165 there is a pic where you have the headlights on. The headlights look very bright and i was wondering if you have made any mods to your wiring or bulbs etc as they appears to be very bright?

    Hi Robert, I'm not sure about this new website look; I am having trouble finding your new Berlina thread. I will be posting more on my thread 69 SV Resto shortly.
    Take care,

    Hello Gigem75,

    I was reading your thread "head work" and have a quick question about using the Neway cutters. Perhaps i have been watching too many YouTube videos but i have seen when the Neway Pilot is installed in the Valve Guide, an instrument called a "concentricity gauge" is used to ensure the pilot is sitting correctly, at 90 degrees with the valve seat to ensure an even cut on the valve seat.
    Could you please let me know if you have used any tools to ensure the Neway Pilot is inline with the valve guide or at 90 degrees with the Valve seat? or are the Neway tools that accurate that there is no need to check the allignment.

    Thanks in advance.

    Gigem - I am having some difficulty with electrical hookup of w/washer foot switch and the wiper toggle switch. I intend to use the MC pressure switch arrangement that you defined some time ago, but the electrical connections are unclear (for me)) Can you provide a schematic ? My email address is Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Do you have the time to discuss your techniques for painting the car at home??

    Primer used, gun used, etc...

    I'm thinking of trying it myself BUT there is so much conflicting info it make my head hurt.
