Re: latest auction result today

The upside down Bertone sign ;)
At first sight, this car doesn't look good.

Re: Bleeding Brakes

I'm not sure about calipers with no bleeding valve, but don't you bleed them by opening the brake line connection a bit?

Re: Oils.

You should always keep your oil level a little bit below maximum.
It cannot be guaranteed that the oil pressure reading is 100% accurate. To be sure that the oil pump is delivering enough pressure you should meter it with an accurate gauge.

Re: color of cam cover and engine block

There are often annoying discussions about this topic like this one: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=564&start=20
The cam covers are either magnesium or aluminium with a passivation coating. No paint.
The engine block is also bare aluminium (2000) or cast iron (2400).

Re: Oils.

I use the UFI 23.162.02 oil filter. It is important that it has a riser inside that prevents complete drainage.
Regular 20W-50 mineral oil is perfect for the Dino.

@Tobi, maybe I should take a trailer full of English Chorizo, and try to decrease the UK trade deficit...
Smart idea! And to avoid to return with an empty trailer, load it with Spanish Stilton :D

Re: Bike Rack on 2400 Spider

The Spider might be limited in width and depth, but not in height as long as you go on the deck of the ferry and avoid all tunnels :D

When I first saw Leo Aumüllers Dino, I really had to smile. It brought a local butcher to my mind who installed a tow-bar to his 911 for his sausage vending trailer.

Re: Bike Rack on 2400 Spider

Only the British even think of using a classic car like a daily driver. I love this!
Do you flee from the impending Brexit to Spain and want to take all your assets with you? ;)
