hello to you all.
A Alfa friend of mine has brought a Alfa F12.
It make me quires. So I have been goggle for informations.
It seems that there is no books on the subject.
The prime informations on the subject seems to be Tony Stevens from Alfa Stop, who have an interesting article on the subject. Witch is based from a article Giuliettaletta.
All other articles seems to have grown from Tony Stevens. With a few additional informations.
I have some questions ,I hope someone will enlighten me on.
What type was the Chassis number on the different Romeo- F11-F12 chassis
What type number had the engines. They must have different numbers from Romeo to F 11/ 12. I have not seen any 750 used except on the Giulietta.
Did they use the ZF transmission 4 DS -7 on all models over the 30 years.

The rear axle that was used on Romeo models, was that a ZF axle, and was it used on the F12 trough the whole range for 30 years.
Does anybody have the axle type number.
The axle has for torsions bars in the axle tube. Was the oil filling or grease in the axle tube.

A lot of questions. Hope someone is able to help me.

I had a 1979 F12, Perkins 4.108 diesel engine. Earlier gas versions had a single-carb 1300 and single-carb 1600, far as I know. The transaxle is Alfa-made, has 101 part-number parts inside, including synchros, but not much else is common with other Alfas. I don't know if earlier version had a different transmission.

Brake calipers front were four-piston ATE, similar to BMW 3.0 and some Mercedes. Brake master cylinder had a Giulia TI part number. Clutch hydraulics were I think same as 1750 Berlina, but longer hose. Rear brakes were drum, never had them apart.

A guy in the Bay Area bought my F12, but I haven't heard from him lately.
