I have an extra radiator overflow bottle on a bosch 84 spider that I am parting. Its the same one as on my 78 spica Spider. Sell her to you for $20 plus shipping. Drop me an email if you are interested.
I am glad that you got it. I had two and they both looked exactly the same. Now you know why I am buying a new one! I just got a new fan from Alfa Parts, turns out they are white. I always thought they were yellow! Can't wait to get the white overflow bottle.
I did have an idea for the old bottle. If you buy two small hose fittings and attach them to the side of the bottle, connected by a small clear hose, you could paint the bottle black or whatever and still be able to visually check the coolant level. That was my plan until Papajam said that he had found new ones.
Do you know if Rainer Hurtienne has the old style brake resevoir with the two seperate resevoirs and the big metal filler cap? The one they show on the website is not the same. If they do, I need one of those as well. I appreciate the offer to combine shipping but if it is too much hassle let me know, otherwise just let me know how much I owe you and I will send $$$. As far as the shipping to me, I have an account with FedEx and UPS, so just let me know when you have it and we can ship it on my account.
Just got an e-mail from Richard Norris at Alfaholics. He has the coolant overflow bottles for £23+vat each! (about $38.00).
My wife and I are visiting London on April 20th, so. . . If you would like I can pick up the bottles and avoid the shipping costs. Actually, if there is anything else they have that you want, let me know.
OK, so I spend about 1/2 hour Simple Greening
the crap out of the bottle I bought from Jeff.
Looks pretty good, time to install. I set it
on the fender while I monkey with the battery,
and plop it falls to the floor, and cracks
Yes, please pick me one up from Alfaholics.
Does it come with a cap? If not, could you please
pick one up as well?
The bottle cleaned up pretty good. It still had
a little bit of grease stains on the inner top
of the bottle. Must have been from a car with a
very bad head gasket, then again what Alfa does
not experience this once in its life
Jeff, Thanks for getting these for us.
BTW, International auto has then for $51, which
seems very high, until you try and buy one over
seas for $25, then pay $25 for shipping
