My name is Joe Niederst and I live in Ventura. I met you probably 20 years ago at an Alfa Club meeting in LA. My son and I have owned some 10 Alfas in the interim.
My son is finishing up a rebuild of a 102 series 2 litre engine, and is in serious need of at least one of the carburetor rubber flanges that mount the Solex PH44 carbs to the intake manifold. The one we need is for cylinder number 1 (or 3) although we would consider buying a set if necessary. Also, am I correct in thinking that the same flanges are used on cylinders 1,3,5 of the 106 series (2600cc)?
I seem to recollect that you owned several of the 2600 series 106 alfas. So I am contacting you in the hope that you might have some used parts around that would satisfy his requirements.
If so, please get in touch with us at your earliest convenience, since the lack of this one part is keeping the car off the road.
