    Re: Alfa 3.0l engine cylinder liners.

    I ran into the same issue... as I’ve been designing and manufacturing performance parts before I’m actually thinking of producing them... since they’re so damn hard to find (would probably make forged pistons and rods too then)

    I’m however running 24V engine

    Well the cars is up and running on the big Island (England) Engine all sorted and making good power. Had to wait 8 weeks for the rolling road near Autolusso Bournemouth.
    They found out that the last rolling road setup at Northampton was far to rich at the Bottem end causing fuel wash on the pistons and contamination of the oil.
    I hate living on the Isle of Wight sometimes as the 2 minute suggestion can save the back end of your car!
    All a can say is the the new motor is a hot rod!

    Hi All
    Help
    As i built the car 33 years a go has anyone got any ideas what the number plate light is from!
    It is definitely plastic, possibly from a Ford transit or a DAF

    Hi Ian - Gerry sells a moulding that's the same as original and uses the lenses and bulb holders from a Mk2 Ford Escort but it's fiddly to make it all fit and you end up with thin fiberglass/perspex. Your's isn't one of those!

    If my memory is right one of the options I looked at back in the day was from a DAF 33. It's a bit chunkier than the Stratos one and the back of it was slightly hollowed out? Looks like yours I think but I can't find a picture of one on the web yet! Let alone one for sale anywhere!

    You're right Guy.
    It's a Volvo part (who took on DAF's cars) by the looks (part number 3269813):

    The outer housing shows the hollowed out section I mentioned. Does that look like the back of yours Ian? You'll have to scroll through the gallery pics.
