    Due to digital ineptitude, I have acquired 2 of these switches; my engine only needs one!

    Does anybody have a use for one?...

    Re: NOS Boot Lock and OE Clip

    Thanks both. I tried silver solder as well as brazing rod - both the same problem. components red hot but they don't liquify / flow into the joint, maybe I need more flux.

    I made some notes when I was doing it to save on the swearbox if I ever had to do it again. I can't guarantee that I've not omitted something, but it looks feasible!

    Alfa Romeo 164 wheel spacers

    The 164 came with steel 3mm spacers, with the 5 x 98 pcd holes and 58.1mm centre bore. Does anybody have a pair? Aftermarket ones have larger centre bore holes and the spigots fall through.
