Re: Transmission

The tranny's fine. You will want to use the early 1756 flywheel though to match the bolts. Don't forget the pilot bearing. It should fit. A lot of things should fit pretty well. The 1592 was the first of this engine series that went through 2L and different than the also 1600, 1608cc engine which wa...

Re: Hagerty Alfa Shop Article

That's funny, I thought all recent Mazda's look a little like Alfas. From the Brera on. They even add some sporty handling (compared to other high volume Japanese cars). That's why I always thought Marchionne missing nailing down Ford's divested share in Mazda and letting it slip towards Toyota was ...

Re: You know current racing is boring when....

There is nothing like that sound in person. Buzzing on tv is definitely not the same. There is a drag strip near me. I still remember the first time I went. I am Not a big drag car guy. Nevertheless as you watched during the day and they built up to funny cars by the evening. You could feel that car...

Re: Weber DCNF/DHSA carb misc. parts

Jeff,

On those DCNF chokes, you say a pair of each 28 and 30mm but there are 4 in each pic. Is that for a pair of carbs? or is there a pair of each left, ie enough for one carb?

Re: ebay selling

Yes. It was a 30 dollar textbook. Don't ask what it cost to begin with. The listing did sit for a 2-3mos. Ironically the seller was great, he just wanted a book for his kid for class and we could have both easily and forthrightly completed the transaction but ebay wouldn't just get out of the way. O...

ebay selling

Be forewarned, long-winded minor eBay rant/warning to follow. So like many of you I have bought and sold parts on ebay for...a number of years. Unlike some of you I still consider this an option. At least until today. Not as any type of major buyer or seller, just occasional items. Lately I had been...
