If you you change your view settings to show 30 posts at a time, it only comes to 7 pages at this point (make that 8 as my reply is #211), and doesn't seem as long and drawn out as your suggested 11+ pages does.

I'm thinking about putting a "7I0" cap on eBay. Any suggestions how much I should be asking?

Hmmmm...I'm not sure if it's the same, but I have 0170 caps on my Alfas. Is that the same thing?

I think that's a different code number, Alex. Must be a newer cap.

Hey AlfaPunk, you perhaps have picked the most appropriate name for yourself on this board. I was also wondering, like Punk, if anyone knew where I could get a short shifter and ecu chip for my 1971 GTV? I've heard these chips give you at least 50 hp. Then, Im going to change my exhaust, that's another 30 hp. And with headers, Im up to at least 200 hp right? Boy, I'm gonna have the sweetest drag racer you old guys have ever seen. I mean, c'mon, why don't you guys just stop driving your cars right now? Us yung bluds r gonna put u in yo graves quick as sh!t if yu come and step to our rides.

The brother of my lawyer's girlfriend's hairdresser is a mechanic with Italian blood who told the hairdresser to tell the girlfriend to tell the lawyer to tell me that the "710" and "0170" caps are interchangeable. Apparently, "710" caps are much rarer than the "0170" caps, as they were original equipment only on a limited number of US cars while "0170" caps were on most other cars, except an even rarer "70" cap with two dots below the "0" that may have been delivered to Germany.

My cap is still in its original bag but the number sticker has fallen off. Given the above statement -- that the caps may be different depending on a car's destination -- I'm guessing these caps may have something to do with emission controls.

A potential buyer just PM'd me asking for torque specs for these caps. I don't have enough experience to answer that question and don't know where to find them in the shop manual. Can anybody help?

Torque? I usually use my all-around general answer for torque whenever I don't have the published specs: That is to just tighten it to about the tightness that a small teenage girl would use. It seems to work, because I haven't broken nearly as many bolts or studs (or caps) since I began tightening things like a teenage girl.

Hey Tubut, if you found your glasses you could make your font a wee bit smaller.
