Re: engine studs SV

Alpines had two head studs. These were on the left side of the engine and were on the front and rear. Everything else was bolts.

Re: Harrington

Re: Friends In Sunbeams - 2017

We'll be at Mid Ohio vintage races that week so we won't make it to Indiana. Brad Babb should have his Alpine back together and racing.
