A Thousand Posts ? It's the 'One Thousand Giulian Nights'

We should celebrate - let's go out and you can buy us all a thousand drinks !

(It's a little like this odd policy they have at work - on my birthday, they told me I had to bring in cake for everyone.... strange that no-one else seems to have had a birthday in the last two years - but I can't wait until they do ! )

Seriously - that's a fair body of work mate - well done !

How long before the car comes back out the other way ?

Cheers,

Derek,

Progress will be quick now its at the body shop! ...driving by Xmas?

I have a theory that the 66' era Supers are not as bad 'rusters' as the later cars.....

I know, I know they all rust but I have 2 sets of doors from 66' models and are all rippers.

My 73' car has rust everywhere!

So hopefully yours should come out OK. How bad is it?

Cheers,

Paul.

Soo, you'd be first to know if I had some bits of use for your car.

Scott with a name like aikendrum105 do you wear the cake when you bring it in? I know in the architecture field you have to bring your own b'day cake to feed the office, was getting a bit expensive a couple of years ago when we had more than 100 staff. Not so expensive now...

Paul, considering its abuse in the past it isnt terrible. My doors, boot and bonnet were actually quite good, the rear panel is very good, but the scary bit as always is the sills. The rear quarter panels 'sound' a bit dodgy too, but I wasnt going to dishearten myself at home by taking the paint off to see until I had it in the shop. A magnet sticks to most of the sills except the front 10cm but I will know this weekend coming what the damage is.

The front upper support and lower panel are all getting replaced, as is the front right guard due to accident damage. It will get put on an alignment rack as well since the bonnet gaps seem a bit tight.

I have a feeling there will be positives and negatives when I have it completely stripped.

Mate - massive bonus points for even knowing the rhyme. I can count on one hand the people I've come across who remember it. Could've sworn we sang it in primary school....

You may well be onto something there Paul, my '69 was a complete rustbucket, but has been fixed, while the '67 I used to have had little rust.

As to the cakable offences requirements, you should see the list we have, which goes well beyond just birthdays, at my work. We have to bring cakes in for getting engaged, married, divorced !!, children being born, houses being bought, new position, successful outcome over a specific problem being solved and so on. It is a wonder we are not all lard arses around here

Derek, your Super should be a breeze to fix, believe me, mine was rusty, seriously rusty and the shell has been brought back from the dead, if only the prep and paintwork had been done correctly.

I have taken some photos of my shell and will start yet another Aussie Super restoration thread rather than clogging up others for you all to see.

From Dave's thread, since I am guilty of much thread hijacking as well.

I haven't factored in drooling over Jim K's book.
I know I have what I need to do this.

I have:
  • A reconditioned head - street port and polished, matched intake manifold, new stem seals etc. (still in vacuum wrap)
  • a new set of Borgo pistons
  • a very good set of liners
  • new engine mounts
  • Reinz head gasket
  • full engine gasket set
  • front transmission seal
  • distributor O ring seal
  • Rear Main Cap 'cigarette' seal
  • rear crank seal
  • front crankshaft seal
  • new timing chains

I'll wait til the crankshaft is out before I get bottom end bearings. I'll get a new water pump, and check the oil pump tolerances.

What other bits will I need?

Oh and Super guys, for those that dont use the original rear number plate holder, what do you do with the 4 holes in the rear panel? Mine had 4 cateye reflectors bolted in.

>> Reinz head gasket

Shiny !


I'm clutching at straws here, you've got everything I can think of;

* Crankshaft Pilot / Spigot bushing (might be fine, but they're cheap enough - polish up the nose of the input shaft too.)
* Think about tapping grubs into the crankshaft galleys - massive peace of mind (however I think it's normally the later nitrided cranks that spit the alloy hammer-in plugs out - don't know if the 1600's suffer this malady much.) You'll need a cobalt 7mm drill for this, and a HSS M8 tap set. There are four plugs on one plane of the crank, and two on the other - some say use 5mm length grubs for the 4, and 10mm grubs for the 2 to preserve balance... I just use 5's, but higher revs on the 1600 might make it more important

* This stuff I find great for anywhere there's a paper gasket: http://www.permatex.com/products/aut..._Sealant_a.htm

* This stuff I find great for anywhere there's no gasket (eg gbox) Loctite 574, 510, 548, 515, 518 Gasketing

* Tap and Die to clean up the Head studs / nuts (will check the size/pitch for you - will be doing this in a day or so myself.)

Some head gaskets need a little extra sealant around the rear oil return galleys / front timing cover section - Ultra Grey or Maxx Grey or RTV or something...

Oh - I have a decent collection of 105 valve shims (misspent youth at Pick-a-part) - if you need some when you come to do your clearances - work out which ones you need and I'll swap you any I have that can help.)

When I got married, I turned up cufflinks out of stainless for myself and the other lads in the wedding party - and press-fit 105 valve shims on the top (they're so shiny) (best man is a 105 nut too, and we'd always joked about making some). It's a sickness, I know... I still wear mine

Scott you are truly an alfanut. What other 'accessories' have you devised?

Well I think I have all the shiny bits I have been chasing for a while. Thanks Soo for finding the last few NOS bits I was looking for, which arrived today. I can't wait to be at the point of putting them back on. It is cool that if you look hard enough, 45 year old 'new' parts are still available.

Sweet Derek, Alfa porn for sure. Envious also is another term that springs to mind. You are so much going to enjoy putting all those nice shiny bits back on your bella.

Well the boys at the shop are working away on my car as we speak. Since the front end needs the most attention, is there anyone with an early Super that has a pic of the front panels - upper and lower, and headlight surrounds without all the bits bolted on?
Mine has had that many extra holes drilled due to fitting different grilles and general dodginess that I dont know which holes are original!

Hi mate,

Mine currently has all the hardware out of the front - it *appears* original as far as grille holes etc go - only the factory square holes with the white plastic clip ins for the grille screws to mate to. The tangs for the bowl springs and the rubber light to grille 'gland' seals are all there..

I'll take some pics on the weekend for you and see if it's what you're after if you like.

The bottom 2-3cm of the lower front skirt has been replaced - but the single oval cutout seems to have been reproduced correctly.

Cheers,

Thanks Scott, that'd be great. I am not after perfection, just close-ish to original. My lower valance replacement panel is for later giulias as it has two rectangular cutouts but they look like they are nearly behind the front bumper anyway so not highly visible. I will have to search my parts manual to see if I have all the bits to fit the original type grille on.

There are rubber strips that fit behind the top of the grille against the body and behind the upper heart section which I have found as NOS over the last couple of years. I will photograph all these bits since I am pretty sure no-one reproduces them just so others can find a similar profile at their local rubber store.
