    WTB Schrick 292 camshaft

    William, i was looking king for something like this: A 304 would be more appropriate for my use. If you decide to lower your price, let me know... thanks!

    I’d take the 304. How much? I’ll PM you.
  5. the turn signal levers the emergency flasher button both are REALLY hard to come by and quite obscure. and don't know where you live but they shouldn't be all rusty... good luck. i like what GUY said, pull everything you can and use it to trade as you build up yours.

    Lynx Manifold + Weber 45 DCOE Setup

    I bought it back in March when i sent my PM above. So, OP didn’t respond w/ a “sold” tag. I haven’t installed yet (spent the summer driving around and having fun) and now garage is being re-paved so just going back to remember what i had... as an aside; i also sometimes go back thru old “for sale items” and ping folks. I wish more would tag SOLD so i wouldn’t get my hopes up... good luck!
  9. Tons of fun! Good venue! Will absolutely do this again. Great to learn from others in the community.

    2002/1600 parts

    Hey, can you take pics of marking on the various items? Block, heads; marking on tranny’s. It’ll help you sell them as folks will know better what you’ve got... there’s lots of variants out there. I’m asking cuz’ i might be interested. ;)
  11. yeah, i had an alfa GTV prior to my 2002 and that community has some deep experience. As an example, i found a dyno plot representative of what some of the old racing guys said they were getting back then. >200hp at less than 7500rpm. like Toby said, those DOHC's could really flow some air. i'd love a 200hp M10, but, personally I'm going to be wildly ecstatic if i can double my 70whp on something i can take to the track. seems Ken's been doing some good work in SoCal.
  12. The Alfa’s had twin cam engines, disc brakes and 5-sp trannies. I also vaguely remember the 2002’s weren’t as balanced front to back so they didn’t brake as well. THere was also no BMW factory support. The Alfa’s were the 2.0L front runners until the Datsun 510 showed up, with good support (primarily privateers but backed by some factory help). I had an article that said the last year 1971 the Datsun and Alfa were evenly matched but the Datsun had just a hair better mileage so the Alfa guys cheated w/ a larger than stock fuel tank and was disqualified. The results, but not backstory, are in Wikipedia. I saw another post here that said hp/L is harder in the M10 than the corresponding Alfa. I’m sure there’s someone online that can weigh in on the intricacies of engine design Its funny that the BMW’s seem to rule the roost now in vintage racing. Not sure why that is either. LIkely a larger community working on it now. Seems like there’s a bunch of vintage folks online here. If i had more time / $$ i think the vintage racing would be fun!

    Show me your roll cages (full interior)

    solid point. i'd have to ensure the bar is close enough that its effectively above my head so if i draw a line from the bar to the front of the hood my head is below it. i'll continue to noodle on it. though i'm certain that the correct roll bar will be quite a bit safer than what i have now... as an example, there's lots of convertibles out there w/ roll bars. of course modern convertibles also have pretty beefy a-pillars.
