I am sorry Richard, but I totally disagree with you attitude.
quote "As far as I am concerned there is enough complication on this engine without adding more! "
If we take that attitude , you express. We certainly will not be any wiser, ever.
Alister Muir. I think I am reasonably aware of the history of the Alfa 33 Stradale. And ,i think, have read what is available on the net. Without coming closer to an answer to my question. But maybe I have some "holes" regarding the race cars.
But my question concern the tipo 33 Stradale.
My 2 cents regarding the ignition coils. was that it could be related to the different performance . The tipo 33 Stradale. the customers had different wishes about the performance of the engine. from 230hp ( Standard??) and up to 290hp should have been delivered.
Regarding the prototype engines from the 50es. Did Alfa Romeo produced those as an engine for the new upper Alfa. And did they scrap the V8 engine. Only to concentration on the 6 cyl 2600 engine.
But my questions could maybe been placed in the wrong forum. But my exasperation was that it was in here the knowledge of the V8 was representative.
Sorry I am just quires about the history of development.
