Let me know if I can help, Steve
Thanks. I got 90% of the parts to repair it for $58 at P-N-P can you believe that. The 91 164L (Fred DeMatteo's old one) was still pretty much complete except for intake plenum and valve covers (the bing they sell on ebay or they try to sell).
What was missing for this project was complete hoses from oil separator and idle actuator (IAC) to intake corrugated hose and 90 degree elbow for oil sep hose to corrugated hose. I got partial hose for IAC as car must have had a repair to hose.
For the $58, I also got besides for fire repair two good hoods struts to replace dead ones on BB1. dizzy cap and plug wires, IAC w/partial hose, air flow meter. I did get besides wiring I needed, false firewall, complete G154/G155 circuit board, heater/cooling fan fuse holders, coolant tank w/cap, brake reservoir, etc....
The Kicker to this whole save the BB1 caper is INS CO will probably pay me more to scrap the car than I can sell it for and that is so SAD.
Don't have final figures yet from them BUT adjuster estimates about $2300+ to fix car with new hood, battery, etc... and their estimated value of BB1 about $2800.
Since ML said one 164 in FL BB1 maybe a goner no matter how easy it is to fix. I couldn't get a buyer or two or three to come thru even at $2500 so with $500 deductible I maybe can still get close to that price and be down to 1 alfa 164 in Fl and none left in VA.
Could this be a blessing in the making. Life as I am approaching 80 maybe telling ME to RIGHT SIZE and let go let God.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story.
