Should rebuilt TA push on cold install?

Wes doesn't mention this in his literature - maybe its obvious to most but should a rebuilt TA "push" on the logic section when installed cold? I dont know the name of the female part the ta plunger acts on but to install the TA cold id need to push it down as you can see. Name:  Image1469305032.783744.jpg

Yes. There will be contact between the TA and what it pushes on from about the position in your picture.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

Thanks. Is there a gasket or o ring at that junction?

[QUOTE=r-mm;7120218]Thanks. Is there a gasket or o ring at that junction?

I removed my TA last week from a car that has only 23,006 original. Does not look to have ever been touched and the two gaskets shown are what was removed. I sent out to Wes Ingram for rebuild but retained the gaskets in case he does not supply them. The round one is a plastic o-ring but profiled and it goes into the manifold. Was wondering if this is NLA what people are using as a substitution as again not a rubber o-ring.

When new the plastic oring was rubber and looked like a normal oring. The one you have is just old and hard and has taken its compressed shape from being on the engine for the last 39 years.

Gasket is there to adjust for overly long t/a plunger protrusion.

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.
