"cigarette seals"? maybe.......why they call them half rings, dunno....maybe because half sits in the block and the half sits in the rear end cap?

the 2 long rubber plugs you see here:
Performance 2L reBuild Giulia-Help Appreciated! - Page 2 - Alfa Romeo Bulletin Board & Forums

Edit: no, actually, they don't mean the cigarette seals either, because reading on there is mention of these and how to put them in.
then I thought they meant the thrust washers for the crank, but these too are mentioned separately
then I thought they meant the rear main oil seal, but this too is mentioned separately...


so really, I just cannot fathom out what they mean, and it is mentioned in the german, french and german versions too:(

other crankshaft in

the assumption is that a 1750 crankshaft will fit the 1600 engine and the mentioned half rings are no longer necessary. Let's hope the oil will stay in...:vs_lol:
