Hey fellow Alfa lovers, haven't been on here for quite a while. Hope you and your better halves (your car) are ok.
I'm finally and slowly getting my S2 1.7 cloverleaf 33 back on the road.
Quick story:
Bought a modified 1.7 8v engine on ebay, claimed 135bhp (forgot to take a picture before started stripping it):


Stripped, cleaned/painted n rebuilt it as I wasn't sure how well it had been done:


Cleaned and sprayed engine bay black:




Now got to try n remember where the heck everything goes :confused:

I'm stripping an S3 33 P4 atm, intending on putting engine n running gear in my S2 but maxing the engine out first n making it RWD.

So if anyone wants anything (not that there's a lot left after all the things I need) just ask :D
I've got a few things on ebay and will be listing more soon (e.g. Recaro seats).
Selling the P4 steering wheel n boss atm n someone asked whether it will fit a S1 33. Does anyone know whether it will? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270621251129&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

i think the p4 wheel will fit the early 33 but not 100 percent.
must meet up sometime when my car and yours are on the road as im near gatwick so not too much of a trek.

i need a fair few parts for my car as the previous owner sold loads of uprated parts off the car so he could get more money back but it looks like i have done a deal with my 145 cloverleaf for a 1.7 33 which has all the bits i need for mine:thumbs:.

Oh right ok, what bits were you after as I've got a 33 I bought a while ago as a doner car which is only missing, engine, o/s front wishbones n front seats.

hello there Alex,

was wondering what you have left from the donor 33 or 33s you mention?

Looking for a pair of vented front brake calipers, the later type preferably, and essex is only a short drive from my side of london... tried PMing you, but your inbox is full.

All The Best

Joe
