    Greg,

    Thanks for getting in touch. I hadn't seen your reply until now. I'm at Lake Itasca State Park for 3 weeks (2 to go), teaching a course at the U MN Biol. Station. I was going to bring the Spider up with me today, but the fuel filter/regulator is leaking. Not gushing, but 3 drips every 10 sec. at idle is hazardous. I'm going to get in touch with Gordon Raymond (IL) about a repair. The leak is at the brass tube outlet to the carburetors, and is probably a hairline crack in the casting. Gordon says he has fixed them before. A replacement part would be useful, just in case the original can't be repaired (gotta spare?).

    I was planning on driving the Alfa up to Kenora, Ontario next Saturday for the Northern Lights Rendezvous (British cars). I thought it might be fun to be the odd one in the mix. It's the 50th Anniversary for the MGB; I think I'll still go. The BMW is pretty fun to drive, too, and it's only about 270 mi. along good country roads. Stay in touch, Dan

    Hi Dan,
    Yes, spider now lives in Tulsa. Nice guy who promises not to paint it red. Now focused on GTV which needs a new diff etc. Never been to Rapid City, but sounds like a good trip. Perhaps I'll see you on the road the summer. Let me know if you need any mechanical support this summer. Always glad to help out.
    Best.
    Gmack
