    Jim,

    How much do you want for the Alfa cam turning tool and the valve adjusting measurement tools?

    Thanks, Mike

    Hi Jim,

    I sold my 78 Alfetta GT to this guy named Andrew Conti.
    I sent a spare 78 driveshaft from another GT with the parts that I included with the car.
    Write to him and see if he wants to sell it.

    best,

    Jim,

    I recently met someone that is interested in a GTV currently for sale in Gainesville, GA. Ironblock suggested that you may be able to do an inspection. If you know of the car, or would be willing to do an inspection please contact me.

    Thanks.
    John

    Thanks Jim let me know when you receive it. I'm hoping to be able to use this on a 101 Giulietta 1961and a 1963 Giulia differential I have. Would this work with these? Thanks Bill

    Hello Jim,

    Do you still have heater valves available and are you willing to ship to Belgium ??
    I'm working on a GVT6, EU version, with AC, VERY rare on this side of the pond, and maybe need such a heater valve

    Best regards

    Roland

    Thanks for the response Jim.
    I was thinking I would undo the cable at the transmission end and put it in a drill. Should the drill be in forward or reverse position to make the test?
    Assuming I have the key in the on position for power to the generator, should the speedo then register movement? I can have someone watch from inside the car.
    On your suggested fix using washers, I assume you would place the washers in the trains end correct?
    Maybe a new cable would then be the fix.
    Many thanks......Bryan

    Jim, thanks again for your help.Please pardon the personal message however I read your bio with reference to your experience with Alfa and I thought ...why not go straight to the expert.
    My remaining challenge is the speedo and odometer as both are inoperable. Everything else on the dash works. They worked intermittently for a few months then gave out. I know that this model uses a pulse generator and is not a straight cable driven setup. I've been through the fuses and all are ok. My plan of attack is to first undo the cable section as it enters the pulse generator, place a strip of tape on it. The tape will allow me to see if the cable is turning as I slowly drive. If it's ok, where should I look next? I know at some point I should check the connections behind the dash pod. In your experience is this a logical step by step approach. Should I suspect the pulse generator? Can they be fixed by a speedo shop. Any other things I should consider? Your response is very much appreciated.
