Truly amazing work Chris!
Following your story people can understand why putting an old Alfa back on the road is so expensive and time consuming.

I didn't find front springs for the 1900.

Here they are, custom made.

Thanks to those who helped me with the measurments.

I don't know how to rotate the picture in the forum. On my screen it's vertical...

And one of the reasons for being a member of the BB or any car club, is that there is always someone spending more money than you.
Rationalization.

Hi there,

We have a little neglected the car for some time. Other cars took us some time...


We resume work on the car and I realize that may be some parts are missing.
I looked in the documentation I have (manual of spare parts) but I didn't find what I am looking for.

I noticed that the top of rear suspension has four holes to fix a spacer or something like that between the spring and the chassis.

Could you help me with a drawing of the rear suspension assembly or a picture of the spare part ?

In the picture attached, you can see the holes for this part.
I enclose a picture of the drawing I have as well, without this part...

Thank you.
Chris

This is the part you are looking for. I believe it is rhe same part for every 1900, but I am not entirely sure about that.

That's a big help Mike !!

Isn't it asked too much if you can measure the height of the part ?

Thanks
Chris

I like your restoration and restoring the body is the most expensive part of most restorations. I live near a restoration shop that will build an entire body for a car.

Thank you for your comment. It's a rewarding but long work.

Thank you Mike, we found the parts in our "very tidy stock" !
