I had a "good" spare box . Started to rebuild it ... it had cracks . Got one from a friend ... it had cracks .He had a second one and it was good . Be very careful with the steering box . I think it is an example of poor engineering . Very rare for Alfa.The steering box should have been thicker or made from steel .
They can be had new and are a thing of beauty . What price would you put on having steering ?
