116 Series (Alfetta Sedan/GT/GTV & Giulietta Sedan) / Re: Brakes...or lack thereof
« Last post by sudsy on January 17, 2020, 10:15:10 PM »
FWIW.. I found that my Alfetta brakes went to Xanadu if the rear calipers got sticky  to some degree or another...

This usually happens (still) after a hot run...

In this case, the brakes went very rubbery and not very effective at all..
Leaving the car rest overnight with handbrake off tends to restore braking efficiency..

Take away from this is ....sticky rear calipers...

General Discussion / Just an idea.
« Last post by bazzbazz on January 17, 2020, 09:28:37 PM »
To all those around the country who are the organizers for club drives, I was wondering if it may/may not be a worthwhile idea to take the drives to suitable areas/communities affected by the recent fire crisis. (NO, not active fire areas  ::) )

I am sure they could do with the business/income from where ever our merry little bands my stop, spend, have lunch, buy fuel.

Like I said, don't know if it's a good idea or not, but just thought i'd mention it.

Hi Peter,

Congrats on the purchase, welcome to the world of Alfa.

You'll find us a friendly lot on here, a little weird, a bit strange, but that's all part of the Alfa charm.  ;)

Sent you a PM too.

I will take precautions to protect the leather.  Maybe slide a deflated football into the gap and inflate it........   What can possibly go wrong  :o  Probably open the sunroof first and place a net over the hole  :D.

PS:   I believe 'facetious' is the shortest word to contain all the vowels, in order, with no repetition.

Maybe for Military vehicles, but definitely NOT the case, if they were working on fixed or rotary wing aircraft.

I was being facetious.   ::)

I'll have to try using a bit more brute force.

"Use a bigger hammer"

"If it won't fit, FORCE IT! If it break, eh, it needed replacing anyway"

Two very popular dictum employed by Air Force maintenance personnel on a daily basis.  ;)
(Especially "Sumpy's")*
