all-alloy twin cam companion 1954-1994
Chapter 2: McLure Halley's 8C2900 was displayed at the 1937 Milan auto show.
Chapter 7: More than any other feature, the all-alloy twin-cam engine defines the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Giulietta.
Chapter 8: When dismantling the engine, look closely at each bearing as it is removed.
Chapter 9: The standard Solex carburetor of the Giulietta mounts on a heated manifold and has two throats.
Chapter 12: With the case split, the shafts and gears of this 105-series transmission can be seen clearly.
Chapter 16: Anyone contemplating racing should start with a protective helmet, driver's suit and a full roll bar.
Chapter 17: If it weren't for its rarity and its desirability, this 1962 101-series Giulietta Sprint Speciale might not have been a candidate for restoration.
Appendix 1: Engineer Giuseppe Merosi (right) is with his colleagues in a Marchand automobile dating from 1899.
