The belt covers for V6 engines (Busso), 12 valve are now ready, and for sale.

They look great and extremely sturdy, 2 layer, hand laid fiberglass.
One set was tested on an engine in the USA, and the result was very satisfactory.
The round caps are not included, but the covers are relieved for their fitting.
The square opening for the ignition wires are cut out.

For installation, they aren't as flexible as the originals, and some items have to be removed,
as the alternator belt and radiator hoses. A drop of Loctite on the bolts should be applied, as the washers
might not be sufficient, and could vibrate loose as the standoffs could not be applied in the molding process.

The price is $350 per set plus $21 shipping, flat rate USPS priority box, Conus.
I have 6 sets available, at the moment. More will be available for next year if enough
interest and a deposit of $150.
Due to the limited production, first come, first serve. Only ones in the world.
After the first week of January, for the BBers in Europe, my son will take them as luggage to Spain.
If you are in the EU, please contact me for reservations and deposits.

You can reach me via a BB conversation,
Please title the subject: "Belt Covers".

Regards, Alberto

All - I received my set from Alberto, and they are extremely well made, well finished, and apparently quite rugged. I'm really looking forward to installing them on my new engine!

I purchased a set of these about 2 weeks ago. They arrived quickly and in good shape. The quality looks to be first rate. I have not installed them yet however. I am waiting for my next belt service.

To the fellow European Alfisti, my son will take some sets to Spain this Friday,
thus lessening shipping charges.

We made a few more, as a vendor in Europe is interested.
Thank you for watching!

Anyone that has installed the covers have comments on the installation?
Criticism? As nothing bad has been posted, I assume all is well...
Thank you.

The covers available in the USA, are no more.
Only available in Europe at the moment.
If there is further interest, I can produce a few, to be available sometimes in April / May.
Please advise.

Hello Heavifuel, My friend checked in his storage of my parts, and there are two sets of belt covers available right now, ready to be shipped from San Francisco.
Kindly advise your wishes.

Thank you heavifuel.
The other set is still available, but I would hurry, as if it sells, it is gone...

The covers are listed for sale on eBay Italy, in case someone there has any interest in them.
If you are interested, please revert to me, and I will arrange shipping from Spain
at the regular price in $ and not Euros.
Regards, Alberto

Just a question, as I am a bit surprised about not receiving any feed back on price.
How do you feel about it? I am curious, that's all.
Regards, Alberto
