67' Duetto Brake fluid reservoir Bracket, photos needed

Can some kind soul post some photos and dimensions of the brake fluid reservoir bracket, as my bracket has disappeared?

Thank you.

Regards, Alberto

Alberto,

Which braking system are you referring to? Dunlop of ATE?

I just put back my Dunlop brake reservoir unfortunately. Not too special actually. Just holding the reservoir.

Dunlop. I am aware that it is not too special, yet I can make one, but I would like to make it look nice.

Dunlop Brake Reservoir Bracket

Here you go Alberto. I tried to measure it, but it's in a very dificult spot. There is a machine screw that holds the canister strap to the mount. Perhaps APE has one. Even a crumy one can be used as a patern.

Late than never, but Franjo Mokina in Slovenia, sent me a gorgeuous reproduction, reasonably priced too.

Write him at: [email protected] and find his catalogue

Great Alfa parts.

Just out of curiosity... In respect of the above discussed bracket and the reservoir attached to it; is there a different bracket/reservoir setup depending upon whether you have ATE or Dunlop brakes. I have ATE brakes but with the setup (shown above) that suggests that its specific to Dunlop brakes. Anyone care to comment?

Many Thanks,

Gary

I am not 100% sure, however my 1967 DUETTO has the set up as shown in post number 4. What I can say is that I have owned the vehicle since 1980 and it has always had ATE brakes front and rear. To change the rear brakes from Dunlop to ATE would leave traces of the ‘support bracket’ welded to the differential - mine does not show any signs of this and I doubt anyone would have gone to the trouble to change the rear axle for a ‘rather small’ brake modification. From another point of view, Alfa Romeo was not 100% consistent in that one DUETTO would have an ATE setup and the other a Dunlop and this happened with many other small differences on vehicles that should have been identical - seems it was a bit of mix and match!

That reservoir was used on all of the 1600 Spiders. The 1750 used a different reservoir.

Many Thanks,

Ate brakes were used "late" in the production of the 1600 Spider. I'm not sure what late really means, but it was sometime in 1967. I've not seen a 1966 model year with Ate brakes, but I have seen 1967 model year cars with either.

Two thoughts:

- Yes people did go to the trouble to change the rear axle for a ‘rather small’ brake modification back in the 1970's and 80's. I did. At that time, used 2L rear axle assemblies, complete with calipers, sold for about 50 bucks. Rebuild parts for the Dunlop rear brakes weren't readily available (no internet to reach AlfaStop). And the trend was more toward keeping cars on the road without spending much / less toward originality at any cost.

- Referring to Duettos by model year is pretty imprecise, given the variations in when cars were imported, how long they took to sell, variations in state's policies on assigning a model year, etc. Using VIN numbers to discuss Dunlop vs. ATE would be more useful. For example, my Duetto, #664321, came with Dunlop brakes.

My '67, had Dunlop, and replaced all with Ate, including the rear axle from a another 1600 GT

Front, same stuff. Easy. Looks stock and no problems.

Regards, Alberto
