Abarth Exhaust Clamps and alternatives

Hello Guys, I found some exhaust clamps similar to the Abarth clamps and I know, they are not 100% perfect, but for now, I can accept that. http://www.bosal.com/de/catalog/universal/exhaust/5021 https://api.split.bosal.accounts.intracto.com/assets/Universal%20data/universal%20drawings/250438.PNG Som...

Re: Looking for contact in Italy for engine rebuild

in Italy I would contact Luca Amadei of Modena Motori. He made complete engines for Ferrari Classiche. He also remakes a lot of spareparts for old Ferraris.
