He? He? Alfas are ladies.. very good looking ones too!!
That's scary about the brakes..... Why are they not releasing?
Yeah but the smell of hot brakes, If only I could bottle it, its one of my favourite smells
Now that I would like to see pictures of!
sounds like you have acheived a hell of alot already, dont be disheartened too much
any ideas whats causing them too bind?
I'm getting over my disappointment about the brakes, I'm starting to think it actually an assembly error that I made when fitting the V6 Brake Servo.
When fitting the Servo to the bulk head I un-intentionally left off a bracket which seals up a space between the Servo & Bulkhead. This bracket is also sandwich'd between the Master Cylinder & the Servo, so I'm thinking that the cylinder is too close to the servo & therefore is always partially on
. As the car is driving the brake fluid is getting hot & expanding but is not been allowed back into the reservoir as it should be because the cylinder is not returning to its HOME position.
2 hours tomorrow would tell alot. Tomorrow I'll have to remove the fans & dip stick, tilt the engine forwards [ again ] & place 2 or 4 spacer washers between the Servo & Master cylinder. Fingers crossed it'll be ok.
If not plan 'B' is to replace the 2 front calipers
Plan 'C' is to replace the ABS pump.
Plan 'D' ........ drown me sorrows at the thoughts of missing Mondello
