TA for '79 SPICA Alfa

Looking for a TA for my '79 gt... my hokey sure-start setup is messed up again for some reason, I want to get this running right for once and for all. If you have a known working one, let me know.

Thanks Jim - odd that I didn't find that when I flipped through that forum. It's pretty pricey though (not considering the price of a new one or the fact that I know & trust Andrew to sell a good part) - anyone know of one for less?

I'll take less for mine if the price is too high. I'm in New Orleans right now (saw a Berlina, bizarrely, first thing this morning), but will be back Sunday night. Let's talk then if no one has bitten at the $175 price by then.

If you don't like Andrew's price, you can always go to the source; Wes Ingram:

Chris, I also have two more used ones coming, which I will test when I get home. If any is usable, I'll let you know.
Alas, I just had four others, but sold them as cores to Wes. Best one extended to 27mm, not great but usable.

Sounds good, Andrew, sounds like one of your TAs will suit my needs... talk to you next week!

On a side note, where the heck do you get all those things? It's like you have a close watch on the Bay Area market for TAs or something... or maybe you don't want to divulge your sources

Here and there. Ebay, CL, just bump into them. Often I get them for almost nothing, and ones with good tubes and bulbs are worth $40 credit at IAP or $40 cash to Wes.
