I would rather cut off my own testicles than remove another gtv servo

Im sure Alfa never expected a servo to go in the 916 gtv or spider.I spent two hours or more plundering a scrap gtv just to get a good brake servo out for a transplant ! see pic.
Im doing this cos i dont want to see a cracking spider scrapped cos the brake servo has gone last time i did one i vowed never again but im a mug!! If your offered a gtv with a hissing noise when the brakes are depressed tell them to hiss off or start cut your own test...... The first one i changed took 12 hours but i recon i can halve that with wishfull thinking.Be more fun to replace an engine.

Gtv V6

Somewhere in Arese, circa 1996... a brake servo goes down a production line
(Cue the 'dawn of time' music)
A master cylinder is added
Clutch master cylinder and pedals
Body panels swoop in
Engine is fitted, etc.

Only joking but it does feel that way, doesn't it!
