New parts arrived this week from Italy (Alfa Romeo seller on ebay - Thanks to Jim Hanks for the lead!).

I sent them an inquiry with request for:

(2) Rebuild kits

(4) 34mm venturis

(4) Main jet holders

(4) 130 main jets

(4) 155 air correction jets

(4) 52.5 idle jets

The jet sizes are from the Blue book specfications chart for a 2002ti.

Received some new and used parts during the past two weeks.

(4) rubber boots, clamps, ti rear badge and some small carb parts (not shown)

Funny thing - after I ordered a front grill 2002ti badge at the same time as the rear one, I received an e-mail from the vendor indicating BMW of Germany needed a copy of my license and car registration. Since I don't officially own a ti, I wasn't able to purchase the front badge. Oh well.

Two instrument clusters also just arrived. These will be disassembled, inspected, cleaned and combined to make one cluster. I know that the real ti's had KM/hr speedo - I'm going to use the MPH version.

Well, I guess I should pick this back up.

Nevada 69 delivered Friday 4/13/2012

Some background on the car (now nicknamed "Oscar" by my wife).

Cleaned the seats and vacuumed the interior on the same day.

Today, I put the car on jack stands hoping to free the engine. M Lytle came over to loan me his short 30mm socket and breaker bar, but the engine is really stuck, so we removed the hood then I started pulling some parts.

Battery/battery tray removed

IMG_7034.jpg

Alternator, distributor, smog pump and all associated emmisions hoses removed.

IMG_7059.jpg

Smog pump mounting bracket is huge. Two front timing cover bolts secure the front along with the entire dipstick flange on the back. The (2) pump bushings were shot.

Maybe this is what is referred to as the "gulp valve"?

Next on the list was the muffler and resonator.

IMG_7057.jpg

I was able to remove the heat shield

Engine wiring removed and marked

Next up: Driveshaft, exhaust downpipe, radiator and whatever is left of the fluids.

Chris - funny how we are doing this at the same time...

I'm going to try and stay more stock than period modified (for now).

Solex 40PHH carbs with air cleaner (as seen above)

Reproduction ti accelerator linkage from Lars in Germany

Either use the engine from the 69 or my spare 72tii one

Bavaria fuel pump

E21 water coolant branch piece and bypass pipe

tii exhaust manifold from the 72 engine

New downpipe

Slightly used resonator with 02 bung

Slightly used Ansa center exit muffler

tii steel wheels and hubcaps (hope I can get 185/70-13 tires when I'm ready to buy)

Stock 2002 suspension with Bilstein HD struts/shocks

New stainless steel shorty european bumpers from LaJolla Independant (still waiting for them to arrive).

No clock since my dash is unblemished

Twin trapezoid mirrors

New grills

Not sure of the seats and steering wheel yet. May stick with stock pieces.

Jim, you'll be needing the correct 1.8ohm ballast resistor to go with that awesome red coil. Bosch# 0 227 901 014

http://www.autohausaz.com/search/product.aspx?sid=dmkfpxmg2qm5sl55gwlsreup&pn=W0133-1627679,

Great project, I also have an original '02 Ti air cleaner assembly to go on my '67 Red when she's finally back on the road. Though I'll likely be using 45DCOEs and an Alpina style bracket to mount the air cleaner to the strut mount stud.

Do you have the Ti/Tii brackets for the inner fender yet or are you planning on using an Alpina style bracket?

Tom -

Not sure what value the white ballast resistor that is now on the car. Will take a closer look - hope it is 1.8 ohm.

I have a cutout portion of the tii brackets from a rusty Polaris courtesy of Jason G. (Eurotrash).

Spent a few hours in the garage while Susan was at work.

Moved the tii engine block from the engine stand to my hydraulic table

IMG_7062.jpg

Crank turns nicely - this may be the base for the engine in the '69.

IMG_7063.jpg

Removed the driveshaft. Thank goodness I bought a cordless impact gun - the (4) lock nuts at the guibo were on very tight. Thinking the hardware was just like on my '73, I grabbed 17mm and 16mm wrenches. These were all 17mm.

IMG_7070.jpg

IMG_7066.jpg

The universal joint past the center support bearing is stiff. I had a hard time removing the driveshaft from the guibo. The (4) 17mm nuts at the rear diff were also really tight. I had to crawl out from under the car (4) times to rotate the driveshaft then put it back into 1st gear.

IMG_7068.jpg

IMG_7085.jpg

IMG_7086.jpg

I can pull up on the shifter at least 2-3", so I thought the shift tower bushings were shot. Not so fast.. All that was wrong was the triangular support bracket bolt was loose. What a simple fix. It had been rubbing against the driveshaft.

IMG_7067.jpg

The car was very tough to push from the delivery truck into my garage, so I pulled the LF wheel which barely turned. Thinking the caliper pistons were frozen, I loosened the bleeder bolts. The last one broke my 7mm Craftsman wrench.

IMG_7072.jpg

I ended up removing the (2) pads from the caliper. Now the wheel turns freely.

Drained what was left of the coolant and pulled the radiator, t-stat, fan and water pump pulley.

IMG_7092.jpg

Yummy!

IMG_7078.jpg

IMG_7080.jpg

M Lytle also noticed that the front control arms were different..

Right side was replaced at one point with a new one complete with ball joint

IMG_7081.jpg

Left side appears original complete with riveted ball joint

IMG_7082.jpg

The underside of this car is nasty!

IMG_7083.jpg

IMG_7089.jpg

Rear suspension has seen better days

IMG_7087.jpg

IMG_7088.jpg

Weird ABA brand hose clamps with blue paint removed from the large radiator hoses and heater core.

Great work Jim. Your pics are always very thorough. What are your plans for cleaning up the underbody?

Tom, can you share pics of the Alpina Ti airbox bracket?...I would prefer not to weld the Tii brackets if there is another viable/period correct alternative...TIA...sorry to hijack the thread, but it probably belongs here...

I've got pictures saved somewhere. I'll dig them out but for now here's two old threads with example pictures. Finding one of those brackets is on the list of parts I'm on the hunt for. Once I find one I plan on making copies. Or find a supplier that makes them.
