The Ti's and Supers apparently have two types of front scuttles. The vent that covers the window wiper gear and motor. An early and a late types. There for 2 types of scuttle to body rubber seals. The early type of scuttle has a channel to to receive one lip of the rubber seal.

The late seal has a groove to go over the scuttles forward lower lip ( I think) .

My 69 Build Super should have the later type scuttle I guess but it has had to be repaired with less than perfect results.

My question is can I replace the later scuttle with an earlier physically and should I? I mean which type is better, was Alfa improving, experimenting or economizing with this design change.

And if any one has pictures of a final intsallation of both types It would be appreciated if they were posted here or sent to me otherwise.

My Super has never had the rubber while in my possession.

Thanks

Ken
