    Hey. Thanks for your to the point answers on the BB.
    As a moderator on a Jeep forum I appreciate that.

    actual experience is important.

    That said, I need some advice.

    I have a 78 Spider with 40 DCOE Weber, header, 10:1 compression, freeflow exhaust, oversize intake valves, 14 pound flywheel. I built a 1979 Spider years ago with my brother user459.

    My adjustable front control arms will be here tomorrow. Planning on as much caster as possible and .5* negative camber per side.

    This brings me to poly bushings throughout the rear. Mine aren't really bad, I just want more predictability and pointability on corners. Should I bother, or will I regret the harshness I hear about on the BB?

    Thanks, Pete

    A friend of mine in Southern California is thinking about buying his wife a later-model Spider.

    Not a big budget.

    Which model should be be looking at?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Hi Alfaparticle,

    I have been reading your thread on your 2L engine on the dyno and just wanted to check, when you were running the 40 webers, making 169HP @ 6200 rpm, you specified you were running 34mm venturis. What about the choke size ? Were they also 34mm ?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Cheers,

    Rob.

    Sir, My name is Jeff Klein and I live over in Aiken, SC. I was hoping you might be able to recommend a good machine shop in the area for block and head work. I am rebuilding a 79 Fiat Spider and since it is so similar to Alfas thought you might know of a good shop for Italian small bore stuff?

    Ed,

    I may have a spare (untested) ECU from my Milano ownership days, will check when I get home. If so I'll offer it to you for very cheap.

    Didn't we do musical instrument business some years ago? I do woodwind work (instrument repairs/restos/mods) and mouthpiece refacing; may have bought some stuff from you on eBay. Can't remember the details.

    Cheers,
