I recently made a similar statement about the age of Alfa 2600 SZ owners. My comments were misinterpreted as "only 70-80 year old people like these cars", which certainly is not the case. I believe the majority of sellers is 70-80 years old, but the majority of buyers (or recent owners) is 30-50 yea...

Mysteriously losing coolant

In www.tomyang.net/cars/ferrari490.htm, Tom writes about mysteriously losing coolant in his Honda. A couple of years ago in our Acura, we started to lose coolant mysteriously, too. There was no sign of leaking. As it turned out, the head was cracked and needed to be replaced. The cracks were probabl...

I vaguely recall that one of the reasons why some rubbers (such as tires) are black is that carbon or graphite is being added to keep them flexible and reduce wear. Obviously, carbon and graphite are conductors. The reason why you encountered some sections of rubber to act as insulators, semiconduct...

I can't help much with info about the spinners but you may find the following trivia useful: The hand with the spokes is from Rudge, not Borrani. Rudge figured out the lacing about 100 years ago. Borrani licensed the design and included the hand as a credit to Rudge. The "RW" designation probably re...

Whining: I agree that it is best to insert some kind of choke coil or suppression device in the power line to the radio. This should be as close as possible to the radio. There usually is a separate fuse for the radio in the power line. I recall kits that were inserted in this fuse clip. As suggeste...

I agree with Giovanni. You can never take enough pictures. And, as the months and years go by, it's good to review them from time to time and see where the time went and what difference you made. Don't cheat yourself out of that satisfaction. As for tools, I'm looking at http://www.drupal.org for bu...

I believe the Carello lens 18.535.716 is unique to Ferrari reverse lights. However, lenses with a similar shape but a different pattern for the ribs of the Fresnel lens wera also used as front indicator lights on the series 1 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint and Spider.
