I got the new water pump from Centerline. Interestingly, the installation guide says that if you're installing the pump with a gasket, that you shouldn't use sealant. If you install it without a...

Preparations for a new water pump

By the looks of the green droplets flying out of the front of my 1300TI's water pump, I'm guessing it's time to replace it, and have a new one somewhere in transit between Centerline and SF. Not...

I find it somewhat hard to believe that this outfit is selling NOS Abarth exhausts for 105s for just 325 Euro. Vintage Abarth accessories are somewhat akin to the Holy Grail. Thoughts?

Hi Chuck,

I believe it was the brushes that were the main issue. The shop went through the whole unit, and may have renewed some other bits and pieces as well. It's worked flawlessly since. My...
