    Cruise Around Mt Rainier

    James, I'll meet you guys down at the Walmart but will likely peel off somewhere after Elbe as I've got some things to take care of. Thanks for putting this together. ColinK
  2. After 4 years of non-use I would start with a brake fluid flush, including bleeding the clutch slave cylinder. But......It sounds like it is time to rebuild the pedal box. Suppliers like Blunt, Ireland and others have kits. Archives will have tips on flushing and pedal box rebuild (not a fun job). Scope creep would include looking at replacing the brake and clutch lines. Good luck
  3. Ping LarsAlpina. I was able to purchase a new set of trumpets back in late 2018. He may also still have the rubber 'gummis' if you have the Alpina airbox. Mine had a nice patina and no cracks but after the rebuild/plating (and new injector lines from Carl Nelson) i wanted a complete refresh. Cheers and good luck. ColinK
  4. i think the Alpina airbox hides too much of the ITBs and stacks and slightly mutes the sounds. I've gone with foam socks.
  5. Congrats on 51 years or original ownership! I hope you and the car enjoy your new winter digs. ColinK
  6. I'm always interested in a drive/get together. That said, I think the boat launch at Alki is closed (or was it just the beaches). Hopefully we can do a get together in May/June, probably the best place to post will be in the PNW section. Cheers
  7. I installed one years ago. First thing i noticed was that the car fired up much quicker on cold starts. FYI, i installed a Streetfire, made my MSD but not as much juice. I'm also running Petronix and a Flamethrower coil.
  8. Amazing restro James! Beautiful car. ColinK
  9. FYI, my old kaput unit is a 003. i guess my memory is fading but I thought it was labeled "West Germany". The currently installed one is the same part number but states "Made in Malaysia"
  10. Search for 'Hemholtz', there's a couple of old threads: Stock is your best bet.
  11. Can't wait to see it in person!
  12. Paul, i'm in for one also. Thanks for your work on this. ColinK
