The cutover to the short rods was 1975. Very rare in Australia. First time I saw one in a Berlina I was wrecking, I kept it for myself as I realised that it would eliminate the weeping from the selector shafts.

A rare case for Alfa, but the seal grooves in the cases are not machined concentrically in the case. Even when you replace the o-rings, you can see that the seals do not sit quite right in the bores and therefore will leak quite soon.
