Thank you Jim for being so generous and gracious with your time helping all of us Alfa nuts. I know personally Jim has helped me on many occasions. Your devotion, dedication and kindness surely do not go un-noticed and this BB would not be the same with out you. You rock Jim! I think Jim needs a "Dr." before "Papa Jam". He truly prescribes the medicine for our Alfa sickness

Papajam is the man, helps everyone and asks for nothing in return, how often you meet a man like this? He sent me a manual for my Spider a few years ago that had the U.S and euro versions for spider and GTV, I was very impressed when I got it, it looked professionally done.

And hooray for Osso, your work on your car has been an inspiration to me. Every time I wanted to do a half a$$ed job and hurry to complete my car, i would stop and visit your web page to be inspired again to take my time and restore it to your standards or try to. You have helped me more then you know.

OK, I'll stop talking now!

Thanks for help (this isn't the end, I am sure I'm going to need your help again).

Thumbs up What more may be said?

Hey Gang!

While there is no way I can productively add to the accolades showered upon Papajam in this thread (and thanks for all your personal assistance, amigo!) I don't believe too many of us fully appreciate the challenges he has faced while putting together all those logically constructed schematics.

Anyone who has access to the factory manuals can attest to the fact that the schematics provided therein have got to be the most difficult to follow and down-right confusing electrical drawings ever generated on this side of the galaxy. How Jim managed to maintain his sanity while doing an Italian/English translation is indeed a mystery!

On behalf of all Alfisti who have used your masterful efforts to unravel electrical problems of the Alfa Romeo flavor, muchas gracias!

Papajam!

I had the privilege of speaking with Jim quite often last summer during the time he was convalescing before he returned to full-time work. He was so helpful and answered so many questions; you would have thought I was one of his best friends.

Two weeks ago I was locked in a death struggle with a drive shaft and I called Jim for advice and he took the time to walk me through the ordeal just before his bedtime.

He has proven to have the heart of a servant in a day when most people are anything but humble and helpful.

Thank you, Jim; I promise to call earlier, next time!

Ossodiseppia started this thread well over a decade ago and I thought I’d reiterate how Papajam keeps on giving such is the graciousness of this man.

I recently reached out as a newbie and quickly received literature from Papajam including one of his renowned electrical diagrams for an early 105 Giulia Sprint GTV.

Truly, what a gem of a bloke! Kind natured expert Alfista who humbly continues to extend his help across continents as Alex Csank noted earlier in this thread. On this occasion to a new guy from down under in Oz.

I feel very fortunate and have benefited from making contact with this guru. Here here, Kudos to Papajam and many thanks to this admirable man.

There is MORE to the story. Jim has Alfa research documents going back who knows how far, can and has, solved MANY Alfa mysteries for me and other BB members with his research.
How many know there are 2 cast aluminum 750 Veloce sumps, and the late one is 3 mm shallower than the early one? Both have the SAME casting numbers, but appear with different part numbers! Fortunately only ONE 101 casting number sump! Some of my customers went through considerable back-and-forth with me with photo's and discussion before Jim solved this one!
There is so much more Jim has taught me (and others) over the years that just a "THANKS!" is totally inadequate. His passion is contagious!

Although we never met in person, he treated me like an old friend. Supplied wiring diagrams and freely shared knowledge. He even introduced me to some sellers when I was searching for my car. Legacy is how your actions affect others after you are gone. We should all give him a kind thought every time we unroll one of those beautiful diagrams of his.

Yes, we will do this, shortly. I have to relearn all of this kind of thing. So, for now, I will close this thread and at some point merge the newer posts with the one below:
