Beats the heck out of me. Did I use the term "praxis"? Can't find it in my post.



Probably not the chains and oil pump. Your head machinist will decide if the valves can be re-used; a lot...

You're right, your compression numbers don't sound bad. An engine with even, 170 psi compression readings will run well. Just checking the head for straightness and replacing the head gasket will...

There is a LOT more involved than just installing an evaporator and blower motor. You need the bracketry to mount the compressor to the engine. Need to relocate the battery to the trunk because the...

There is probably some caulking/clay -type sealant under it that has now hardened and is acting as an adhesive. If all the screws are out, your next step would be to apply enough force to break the...

Just two snaps per mat - at the rear of the mats, right in front of the seats - will hold the mats pretty well. The factory also put snaps at the front of the mats, on the firewall, but those aren't...

Yes, those are the type of license plate bracket that came on my '66 Sprint GT that was originally sold here in California.

Well the idea of what is "standard" depends on your perspective.

Cars sold in North America came with brackets that accommodate our rectangular license plates. So we only need an adapter if we...

Looks like a 1972 - 1974 2 liter spider.

Snap an underhood photo (hood release lever under the dash, to the left) and post that as well. It will be interesting to see whether it still has its...

The liner O rings should be in there.



While I agree with IRONBLOCK - viton lasts longer than conventional rubber - I'm not sure how critical this is for the liner O rings. I say this because...

The O rings typically come with the gasket set - not with the liner set. It's pretty hard to replace pistons & liners without replacing a bunch of gaskets at the same time, so I guess Alfa (or Borgo...

Oh yea, sorry - when I hear "floor mats" I think of the big mats in front of the seats. But as 6alfas says, the rubber pieces that cover for the sills (whatever we should call them) get glued down.

Not with glue - with snaps. The male snaps are secured to the floor sheet metal with sheet metal screws. The female snaps are located at the corners of the mats.

These are still available.

New repro panels are available for ~$100 each, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the lack of interest. It'll break my heart to chuck them out, but I guess we all...

Yes, that makes sense if the headlight switch - or power to the switch - is the issue. The flashers, turn signals and brake lights are on completely different circuits.

Sure.

I'm not saying that I know the manufacturer for every Alfa rubber part; the 750/101 trunk seal that people on this thread are discussing may well have been made by Ciccognanni.

I'm not sure that is true. There are certainly different "flavors" of 105 GT door gaskets out there, some thicker/stiffer than others.

My sense is that some parts suppliers carry generic rubber...

Ah, the passenger side. Yea, shimming only that side would raise the height of the engine, as well as tilt it. You need to drop the "DS" at the same time to maintain the location of the crankshaft...
