    Hi Don,

    Do you know anyone that has new valve springs for the CI 2000 engines? I've searched the usual suppliers with no luck so far. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Hello Don, I wonder if you can help me with something? I am building a 'Special' using a 2600 engine/gearbox. The gearbox I have has no angle drive for the speedometer cable-should it have? There is just a threaded flange sticking out at the rear-I assume an angle drive goes to that? Is the angle drive shared with other Alfas or is it unique to the 2600 do you know?
    Thanks, sorry to be a nuisance.

    Hello Mr. Peterson,

    I've seen many of your posts and was just reading your "full monty" thread, always loved the lines of the Montreal. I was hoping you could give me to your body shop, I'm up in Reno and was hoping I could find a local member with a reputable shop I could consult with regarding having my 1971 1750 GTV redone. Would love to drive down, take you to lunch and pick your brain on Alfa's.

    Thank you in advance.

    I have followed your thread for a while and am interested in being the next caretaker of your Monty. I will be in Monterey for the auctions and wanted to get an idea from you what it is going to take to buy your car. The reason I ask is that it costs $200 to get bidder credentials at Russo & Steele and yours is the only car I am interested in bidding on. If it's within my comfort range, I'll get in on the action.

    Hello don
    I sure could use your help since you know not a lot of alfas in reno/carson city area. I resurrected my 78 sedan from a backyard in reno. Mice took its toll on the wiring and im patching together the pieces.
    I havent dealt with twin webers before so im reading up and consult the bb.
    I usually hang out at the sierra invisible shield shop. Lots of intersting cars show up there. SIS | Sierra Invisible Shield | Your Clear Bra Specialists

    Hey Don,
    I'll try Doug, and then list it.
    I was building my shop up to a point where I would be a full fledged shop, rather than just a rabid GTV6 enthusiast.
    But interference by a BB member cost me several sales and a lot of my enthusiasm.
    Also, my health is failing, I have congestive heart failure and have to be very careful not to stress.
    So, getting rid of all my parts and all of my cars except for 2 GTV6's and 2 Montreals.
    Big job, as I had 30 Alfas and a tractor trailer load of parts.
    Thanks for your suggestions,

    Hi Don,
    I hope all is well with you.
    I have a 50's 2ltr engine I would like to find a home for. Has sat outside for a few years.
    I'd like $400 plus shipping.
    I am closing my shop in August, and have a ton of Alfa stuff to get rid of, mostly V6 era. I have a weathered Giullietta engine and trans too. Papajam recommended asking you for input.
    Thank you for your consideration,
