Re: 2400 rear brake calliper tutorial

Reassembly is basically the reverse procedure. Here are the parts ready for reassembly. 20190404_213002.jpg I use some lithium grease to hold things in place and lubricate the mechanism. Don't forget the larger (12mm) O-ring on the lever mechanism, next to the where the lever to the cable is attache...

Re: 2400 rear brake calliper tutorial

Now,,you need to remove a circlip that holds a metal cage and spring mechanism inside the rear piston. The circlip is held in by pressure and has one end beveled so that you can get a thin flat screwdriver in provided that you aligned it over one of the cutout holes. Then, remove the C-shaped clip t...

2400 rear brake calliper tutorial

There have been many posts regarding how to refurbish the rear brake callipers on the 2400 Dino. The difficulty is that these callipers incorporate a floating two-piston setup that also serves for the handbrake. Often (like me, the first time), one takes it appart and only changes the front piston s...

Re: Rebirth of a Dino

Wow. Just... wow.

Brilliant work, it's nice to see this level of restoration quality going into these cars. They certainly deserve it after being overlooked for so long. Congratulations!

Re: Carpet Pieces

Hi Graham,
I replaced my original orange carpets a few years ago, and can confirm that there is no extra carpeting under the front seats, just the sound deadener.
Best,
Dario

Re: wiper motor removal

If it was me, I would cut the wires and instal the white connector plug as shown in Greg's picture. Will make life a lot easier.

Re: Chain tensioner adjustment, turned in to major failure

Interesting find, I'm sure you'll feel some consolation knowing that it was not related to the chain tensioners! By the way, the last picture makes a beautiful poster. What an engine! Imagine what it will be like when it's all back together looking better than ever. I know it's not original, but I p...

Re: Wipers intermittent mode

Hi, I also had a working intermittent wiper until the black box failed. Replacing it with the Alfa/124 spider one got it working again, but the intermittent timer is much less responsive. I think that the replacement boxes are not exactly correct for our cars. I think I still have the old one and co...
