Joe, I don't understand your last email, but suspect it is an answer to a direct email. I wish I had a good source for new 87mm Romablocks.
The size needed for the various Alfa fittings is 8mm. The real Cavis nearest fit is/was 7mm, so you use a heat gun and they fit fine. I've assumed those who have the (apparently only in green, not blue/green) reproduction hose are also 7mm. Obviously 8mm would be nice.
However...I've run into a number of items that use short pieces of blue/green fuel line. I don't know what size it is, but does appear to be a larger size. Thus my email to a seller on eBay to see if I can get it in 7mm meters.
Before I came on this thread some weeks ago I was planning to use an ordinary black fuel hose for my Sprint Veloce. After my visit I tried to find an acceptable green hose closer to my location and I found this. Today I received the hose and I am very satisfied with it, it looks very original.
Buy enough so you can change every section every couple of years, if looks are that important. Plenty of 'our' cars have gone up in smoke over the years because those cheap hoses have split. Personally, I would not take that risk. Use so-called ordinary black fuel hose, or braided hose, for regular use and keep a length of the Cavis style for the kind of car show that requires several days of cleaning, scrubbing and polishing prior to the event, or the day that the assessor from Bonhams pays you a visit.

I was hoping to canvas some informed opinion as I start planning and budgeting the restoration of my 101.12 Sprint.
I appreciate the options I have regards engine internals and head work, but am undecided whether the pursuit of DCOEs and all that entails is proportionate in terms of effort...
This question only applies to 750 Veloce with DCO3 Webers.
Is the photo of Bell Crank 1365.67.707 (early Veloce - described as "L-shaped with welded spacer")
or it is 1365.67.718 (later Veloce described as "Two levers welded to spacer")?
The Spare Parts Catalog specifies different length...
I'm finally getting around to installing the hood latch, door catch and trunk latch mechanism on my 58 Spider. My painter lost the original hardware, so I need to know what size/type bolts, nuts, screws, etc... are needed to install these parts. Here are some photos showing the hardware I need...
I've seen these for sale on both the CA and AS websites, but neither of these parts are to be found in either the Giulietta or Giulia parts catalogs.
PEDAL BOX SPACER PLATE & PEDAL BOX RUBBER SEAL
Are these necessary? If not, how did they come into use?
