    I see you own a 79 Spider. I acquired one a few months ago and I am sorting some small issues. Would it be too much trouble to look at the picture on my post regarding windshield washer system. I'm trying to figure out what the femAle plug is for to the left of he washer fluid tank. There was no motor atta he'd to my tank when I got it. And there is conflicting info in the owners manual and wiring diagrams. I don't know if it ever had one I do know that whe n I push the floor button there is little travel and the wipers sweep.

    Hi Andy,
    I was looking at the suspension item you commented on in the Forum.
    Could you pass on the telephone or email of Andy at Performatek. I am interested in doing some Poly on the back of my Graduate.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there
    I have stumbled over old posts from you where you mentioned Weber Carbs by John Passini (Vol 1) I have Vol 2 and have been trying to find Vol 1.

    On this side of the world no luck on Vol 1

    Any suggestions

    Ed - Thanks for the picture today of your spider. Wow it looks great in Euro style. What are those rims, please? I like them. My 74 came with Cromodoras, which are nice, but very common. Thanks - Dickson

    Hi Ed - always like your posts . wondering how your spark plugs look . we have 4 2l Alfas , plugs always look too dark . leaner idle or main jets lead to stumble ( 50 f14 , 135 mains seems best ) tried n9y , bp6es , bp7es & some platinum bosch , but all come out dark . highway mileage is 24 or 25 . Hotter heat range maybe ? 10 to 1 comp , 10548 cams in everything - good power band(torque for street ) Thanks , Roy

    Hi there;
    i found your posts (old ones) on using an MSD6al. I've just acquired one for my 86' spider(bosch distributor). Any help you could offer me in terms of how to install, what to do/or not to do, would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    wow! that would be awesome if you had an extra stud. I am going (with optimism) to a fastener store here, who may be able to help, but most likely not. I will reply later(after work) and we shall see. Thank you in advance for your kind gesture.
