Perhaps Competition Friction?
Thank you all. All done now, new brake rotors and pads (Ferodo DS3000). These seem quite hard to source in Australia, does anyone know of a good supplier?
Hi All,

Still for sale - Price drop to $23,500.

Number is 0422 431 851

Yes, a few lessons learnt there I'd think. Possibly the harshest being that one's parents can (on very rare occassion) actually be right about something...

I have included the torque tightening sequence from an Alfa service manual basically you tighten the nut to 20- 24NM then rotate the hub then back off the nut 90 degrees then re tighten to 5-10NM then insert a screwdriver between the hub and the washer with a slight amount of force you should be able to move the washer sideways.
I'm stocked up some Red Line 75W90NS for when I next get under the car. I was told you can use it for the diff as well?

Reasonable field for Alfa Racing, three four cars doing back to back weekend racing, well done on the turn around.

Actually a massive field of Alfa's overall, 30 Alfa's including the racing group.

As mentioned, weather is great, probably a bit too warm.

Who's coming.
Hi bazz 
There is enough oil in a new compressor to cover a dry installation. The Hychill website states that minus 30 is compatible with all other refrigerants but they also recommend a total evacuation of the system and then adding SRO500 oil before regassing
I am not using Hychill in the system, currently it has R134a. I will try minus30 next time I need to regas.
That beat up oil filter was on and old 2.5 engine I used for R&D. I used it to get proper fit and alignment when I modified the bracket for the longer compressor. The photo was to show how tight it was on a GTV6 or alfa75. A standard filter will fit but you would need to remove the compressor each time you do a filter change because the filter won't spin all the way off.
A smaller filter as used on some 164's was used as it can be spun off easily with no problems.

Spot on GG105. I owned one of the first five imported and another belonged to a girl in my neighborhood: all red, all registered as 2 litres, mine black velour & no roof, hers tan leather with roof!
