Thanks, however, they are no longer out. Next time I pull them I'll get that done.

Truer words have never been spoken...I often say that my ratchets work much better counterclockwise than they do clockwise...

Planning on hugging the Sierra Nevada foothills for about 850 miles, another route I've not tried before. I truly detest Hwy 5, so this should be a welcome change. Adds about two hours to the trip, but I'm planning on taking two days.

Shiite. The GTV must be livid...

Do we have details, pictures, and the obligatory build thread on this one?

The GTV is getting testy, kicked out of the workshop two years ago, now having a '73 Berlina and the new to me 164 LS on the property...thought I wouldn't push my luck with any build threads...yet.

The 164LS trip home went from absolute heaven to Oh Crap! about 120 mile from home. Some wag suggested that I should have bought a 1,000 mile car instead of one rated for 850 miles. SMH. You can see a thread on dumping bad gas in the 164 production forum.

You still haven't done the 5 minute simple checks? You are badmouthing the car before doing these checks, lol, wink, wink. Do them and let us know what you find. The last guy (Richard Bradford) in the BB with a similar problem found that the multiwire connector to the AFM was loose or dirty. Simple fix.

We all hope that it is indeed a simple problem. Good luck.

I've done nothing for 10 days. Between the high 90s, low hundreds weather temps, and having to rebuild another lawn tractor engine, my Alfa time has been zero. Bear with me, we'll get back at this.

Such wonderful weather, lol. And, it's not going to get better, as you know, no thanks to you know what. I know my cousin in Roseville has to cool his pool. At least it is not outrageously humid, as we experienced in Virginia, etc.

You guys are killing me!

Jim, definitely getting older.

NM, that's my usual train of thought.

The heat here usually gets oppressive in late July, and then August. So...I beat it by getting up early and working, taking a break from about 3-7:30, 8:00, then working again. I guess I just don't want to get up early or stay up late anymore...

Age is starting to kick my ***!!!
