    Good morning Gordon,
    Your name was recommended to me as someone to talk to about an oil pump rebuild for a 1600. Looking through your post messages it appears you're a busy guy though! If you get a chance could you let me know your thoughts on these oil pumps and possibly your availability to look at mine?
    Kind regards
    Mark

    Good Morning Gordon,
    I recently posed a question about water pumps on ALFABB. While googling around , your name came up. I have a 750 engine that the pump impeller is loose in. Seal is still good.

    Do you sell rebuilt pumps ? Exchange or just rebuild what is sent in?

    Thanks, Somer

    Hi Fran,
    If there are cups over the progression holes, these are late production. Cannot tell a lot more without seeing them. The original application for 45DCOE18 was for the GTA junior but there were other applications as well. I believe there were more 45DCOE18's built than small top 45DCOE14's but Weber kept no records on this so that's only a guess. Several well used sets have appeared that share features with 45DCOE13's including 3 progression hole bodies.
    Contact me anytime at <[email protected]> and we can discuss with photos. Oddly, rare and odd DCOE's restoration costs are exactly the same as more common variants as the same work is needed. I've a pair of nice matched 45DCOE14's in my shop that arrived yesterday for a stradale GTA that will finish up as new.
    Best, Gordon

    Good morning Gordon, I was wondering if I could get your email. I have a pair of 45 DCOE 18's, I would like to send you images of. I am considering having these rebuilt by you when you have a chance. The venturi locating screws are safety wired, and the screws that you typically would remove to see the three bleed holes have brass cups installed there, the venturi's are 36, which leads me to believe these may have been race prepared, but I don't know. After seeing some examples of your work, you definitely are the go to guy for these. No rush when you get a chance you can email me at [email protected], or reach me via the BB. Thanks, Fran

    Good morning Gordon,

    As I was looking at my "spare" 1600 engine, I noticed there was a tube (perhaps called the crank breather tube) coming off the back of the engine block and apparently venting (draining) to atmosphere. Whereas, on the 1600 engine that I'm rebuilding (I think they're both '67 vintage engines), the opening on the block is blocked by a flange.

    So, this opens up a variety of questions:
    1) Is this a difference between a GTV engine and a GT?
    2) Was this an early idea that was subsequently accomplished via the "valve cover breather tube" on newer engines and thus blocked on my one engine (as the casting already had the hole)?
    3) Something else entirely?
    4) Any benefit one way or the other?

    Thanks in advance - I hope to get my carbs today!

    Chuck

    Hi Gordon: I tried to email you today and found that the address I had no longer works. I sold my GTV and am now Alfaless for the first time in decades. In going through my parts -- in preparation to sell them -- I found some Weber pieces that I have found difficult to price. I'm wondering if you would mind giving me some advice? If so, will you email me at [email protected]. I have photos of the bits and pieces in question. There are many of them.

    I have been trying to post in the classified section a question and a picture of my 92 Alfa spyder, but it hasn't shown up. Can you check and see what I am doing wrong. I thought maybe the photo was too large when it first didn't post so yesterday I tried again with a photo that was 191kb but still no luck.

    Thanks.
