Any 105 series spares out there?

I'm sure something is going to fall off at some stage.

Dear Santa...

Sorry to hijack someone else's request for parts, but I need some chrome or stainless headlamp rims for my 1972 GTV2000.
I probably need lots more too but they would be good for starters.

Starter Motor Wanted

While I don't hold out much hope, I'd love to track down a Bosch starter for my '74 2000GTV, the Paris Rhone (uncommon and impossible to get parts for)unit my car came with is driving me crazy with its intermittent performance. Anyone in NZ got one sitting under their work bench?

Dean - isn't it just the small drive gear at the end of the starter that needs to be specific to your car? As in, would an Alfetta starter work but with the correct drive fitted? And maybe the drive on the current starter can be fitted or modified to fit?

Just thinking out load.....

Vernolese,

I have some 2000GTV inner rings (link) but no outers (as far as I can make out). Let me know if you cannot find anything closer to home and I'll look into postage costs.

Alex.

Alfetta starter has lightly different mounting holes, its only a mm different but its enough to strip your ring gear, which is a pity as its a more powerfull 1.1hp vs .7 hp bosch. Could be made to fit by redrilling holes though.
I have a Paris Rhone starter from a 75 which looks good you could use for parts, I also have some Bosche starters.

Thanks Hans-Peter
What sort of condition are the Bosch ones in and how much do you want for one? From what I've seen on the BB the Paris-Rhone is not worth trying to fix and the Bosch one is the way to go.
I'll count the teeth on mine to confirm the fitting.

...and it's the rear side window. Anyone have a spare? I'll need the clasp as well, or at least the part that was attached to the window.

Hi there, a seller on TradeMe "gtparts" in Wellington is listing a bit of NOS Alfa parts incl 105 stuff recently, you could contact him and see if he has anything else lying around?

A window, seriously? If you can't notice that your window is in danger of falling out, I'd say that you're going to miss pretty much every other problem awaiting you. The kind that will leave you stranded on the side of the road, for example. I don't mean to sound unkind, but are you actually capable of looking after this car? There are thousands of other cars out there, even in NZ, that are better candidates for daily abuse.

That is unkind, when I got my first coupe I checked it out and drove to my first race meeting, Bay of Plenty to Manawatu, rear side window promptly fell out in the streets of Feilding, had a great meeting though, May Madness, still going with the same car 9 years later, anyway a window that was firmly fitted was loose after a 4 hour trip over mountains/road works etc, quite a normal trip in these parts.

Hi mate, more to the point, which side of the rear side windows do you need. I am pretty sure I have both a spare LHS and RHS. No idea on the cost of shipping though from Hobart (Tas) to Auckland.

Got one thanks through Milano in VIC. Was a bit hard to track down because it's a common issue and everyone I contacted was out of stock.

Not sure of the value of your post, Alex. The 105s are a great daily drive, up for plenty of abuse, and mine has served my well for almost 10 years. They like to be driven hard and mine has always been serviced by Alfa specialists. However, in New Zealand, it needed some rust removed. At the garage they opened all the windows and clearly didn't tighten the LHS rear clasp when they closed it. I didn't check, took it on the motorway and wound the front window up. The pressure change pushed out the rear side window and ripped it from the seals.

So yeah, I knew the seals needed replacement - they all do, it's a 35 yr old car - but it wasn't a problem as long as the window was closed properly. There's only so much money to spend on replacing bits.
