Just be happy you weren't working on them for a living when the bulletin was issued. The supplier to Alfa on the seals cut a run of them short. I can't tell you how many of these I replaced with the engine in the car under warranty. I think I did 10 to 15 twice until they figured out the replacement seals were also short.

Its really easy and quick to remove the upper pan with the engine in the car after you've done it 30 or so times.

1969 1750 Spider Veloce w/dual webers, 1969 1750 Berlina, 1971 1750 Spider Veloce w/ dual webers, 1985 Spider Veloce 23,000 orig. miles, {Two} 1986 Spider Veloces, 1987 Spider Veloce bought new, 1988 Quadrifoglio, 1991 164S, Plus several more. I think they are breeding.
