  1. Headlight switch: is it repairable?

    Sedan (1962-1977)
    it won't turn off. this has happened to me before. the contacts are carbonized. last time I found disassembly instructions, took it apart and cleaned it. this time I can't find the instructions.
  2. Headlight switch: is it repairable?

    Sedan (1962-1977)
    I'm searching all over the place. Can you point me to where it is? I know I saw an exploded view or disassembly instructions somewhere but now I can't find it. any help would be appreciated.
  3. Do you believe in "global warming?"

    Off-Topic Talk
    anthropogenic climate change or natural, hysteria or real crisis, I think what is abundantly clear, and what even proponents of climate policy must admit, is that the crisis is being used on an international policy level to control human behavior. Nothing is more important than the planet...

    GT (1963-1977)
    Put my brand new Giulia QV on a lift the other day to look at the factory carbon fiber drive shaft, and guess what? It has a guibo joint at the back of the transmission ! :)

    for sale are the rarest of the rare alfa romeo seats. The 69 1750 flying buttress seats were only made for one year. they came in two varieties: the european and american versions. I have the european version with the headrest only on the passenger side and no headrest on the drivers side...
  8. Cavity Protection? Cavity Wax, Fish Oil, Lanolin, or Used Engine Oil / Diesel Mix?

    Car Restoration
    question for the forum: about 10 years ago I bought a 66 step nose from a canadian. The car had been restored in california and, from a metal point of view was absolutely spotless. No rust then or ever. all panels clean, all factory with pictures from the restoration. the previous owner...
  9. 60 Giulietta engine upgrade

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    development update: After much consideration, I decided to buy some cams from Richard Jemison and install them in the original style 1300 tipo 120 motor. My thinking was that the engine was basically sound and the cams would work either in the 1300 or the 1600 if I later decided to swap the...

    spring tool is owned by my mechanic, Richard Garre. Probably an original tool
  11. Whats in your tool box?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Most breakdowns on the side of the road are not fixable, so the AAA advice seems sound. There are a very few exceptions with this particular car. first: the cable from the throttle linkage to the bell crank can snap. I would keep an extra one of those in the trunk. I had this failure...
  12. giulietta sz 3 shoe brake rebuild

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    drove the car with the original style pad material today for the first time. There is no comparison to the old material. much better stopping power and much more bite. I think the old material may have been satisfactory for track driving but never really got hot enough for the road...
  13. Source for bearings and parts for Early ZF steering box

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    some years ago, I communicated directly with ZF regarding parts for a 105 series box. they had a classics departments and had almost everything available save the worm gear
  14. giulietta sz 3 shoe brake rebuild

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    the other piece I really couldn't get my head around, even after looking at other posts, parts diagrams, etc. was how to get the springs off. Turns out there is a factory tool that goes over the little pin behind the brake shoe that the spring hook catches on. you put the tool over the pin...
  15. giulietta sz 3 shoe brake rebuild

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    I had some questions about the function and repair process of the giulietta 3 shoe brake drum system which I have found some answers to and I thought I would share them with the board. The system as it was did not really stop the car well. After researching the bb and communicating with...
  16. 60 Giulietta engine upgrade

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    Leak-down test done! cylinder 1: 10% cylinder 2: 10 % cylinder 3: 10% cylinder 4: 15% conclusion: motor is healthy, its just not very powerful. This opens up and interesting possibility. I will source some RJR cams and install them with more modern cam timing (less overlap) . If...

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    Next piece of the puzzle: drove the car hard today and there was a bit of vapor coming out of the canister. However, the vapor coming out smelled only of oil and gas, not coolant. the coolant smell is coming from a small leak from the spigot on the exhaust side of the engine. Could be...
  18. 60 Giulietta engine upgrade

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    'Nother question: The original motor has a block vent in the back, as does the 1600 motor I have sourced. I am considering sticking with the original motor and just uprating the cams, and cam timing for a start, as has been recommended. The 1300 tips 120 seems sound, runs well and has good...

    Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)
    you are right, the Veloce book cites the car as tuned by Nardi, not Facetti as i wrote in a previous post. You have a good memory!
