    Any specifics on the model of heater valve from the manufacturers Jaguar or Austin Healey (i.e Xj6 and 3000, respectively) would definitely set me straight on my search. Also any tips you might know from Greg Gordon extending the cable would help me out a lot.

    Hello Glenn,

    I've been reading up

    on Greg Gordon's project car 'The

    Blue Meanie' and see that you are

    the proud owner of the machine.

    One of Greg Gordon's threads was

    on the repair of the heater valve,

    by replacing the troublesome Alfa

    original with what Greg described

    as a generic one.

    I'm curious to know if you have

    had a look at Greg's repair and

    can give me some tips on copying

    his procedure onto my own car.

    Any pics you have of the mod would

    help me as well.

    I don't want my GTV6 to turn into

    a garage queen as its my daily

    driver in summer.


    Thanks,

    Greg

    Hello Glen,
    It's Merril. I'd like to send you a few pictures. I haven't messed much with this forum's message feature so reply to me via mgordon_gtv6@msn.com. I might have a few others you might like to see as well. Sure enjoyed the convention and hanging out with you as well.

    Allan, thanks for your call. I basically have about 10 years of collecting V 6 hardware. Sold the GTV 6 racer and the 85 GTV 6 Hot Rod 3 L is next. Parrying down on my focus - 4 cylinder Alfas and Race Mazdas keep me too busy for a retired guy. I have 2 - 3.oL engines left. One crank fire 164 that the heads have been pulled and the other a short block. 3 cranks, heads lots of used spare stuff. A transaxle etc.

    Lots of spare little body parts that I didn't take pics of.

    Also the 85 GTV 6 - 3.0 L can be yours before I respray - too much to list. Full suspension/wheels/tires/headers/Venolia 10.5 pistons/cams. Sounds great and SCREAMS - Euro bumpers no PS or Air - nice interior - $5500 the way it sits.

    As far as the parts I'd give someone a screaming deal if they took all the V 6 stuff.

    Send email and I'll send some pics of the piles.

    HeavyMetalAlfa,
    I tried to send you a few messages about your red 69 roundtail for sale, but I just signed up to the forum (mainly, to try to connact you about this car), and I'm not sure if I am using the messaging correctly. If possible, please give me a call at 843-324-8763 as I have several questions about the car (condition, what's there, etc.) and I think it'd be easier to just talk over the phone, or if it works better to communicate via the forum, just send me a reply. My name is Charles Feeley (cmfeeley on forum).
    Thanks,
    Charles

    Because of a recent theft, I am having to replace several Alfa Spider Veloce parts. Since I have purchased from you before, I was wondering if you have the front emblem and rubber holder (part of front bumper system), ignition computer, and fuel computer. My car is 1986 with L-Jetronic.

    I am still looking and learning about the GTV; really like them.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    You saw the GTV for sale on craigslist didn't you? And the spider over in edgecombe? I'd have bought that but I don't need another project right now. I bought the black spider that was in Freeport..

    Hi Glenn:

    Johnny Boy Duncan was over at my house a few days ago and making noise about flying out to California for the Convention. John is the current guy in the Alfa Club responsible for Marketing for the Alfa Owner, so it seems he has an obligation to be there. George Schweikle and Dee are going too. Cross Country Motor Home trip. Several of the guys from Louisville are going. They have purchased a car out there, Brian Shorey has picked it up, and they are all going to race it together. iIunderstand, they are going to dump the car on Brian after the convention. I offered to go out and pick it up and drive it back to Kentucky if they bought me the airfare and the gas to get back. They didn't like that idea.
