Re: Crankshaft Part Numbers 124 Spider

My understanding (which might be wrong) is that the part number refers to the blanks, and then the grind was applied. So while, in general, there was a fair degree of alignment of specific blanks to a specific grind.... that wasn’t exclusively the case.

Re: AR Blue Lowering Springs

The AR springs are progressive on the rear and are a little stiffer IMHO. I've used them on chrome bumper cars and big bumper cars... they seem to bring all cars down to the same level.... my logic reasoning is, therefore, that they're both shorter and stiffer than stock springs.

Re: Smith's Far Code

It’s a Seatbelt Interlock logic box - more than just a buzzer - usually fitted to British classics (Jaguar, Jensen, Triumph etc). No idea how it ended up on your spider.... but I did find one referenced as a part for a 128 ....

Re: IDF dimensions

I’ll measure some carbs later. I’ve got Italian made Weber 40 and 44, along with Spanish made Weber 40 and 44, on the shelf.

Most of the vendors are equally crazy (remember, they make a living off of these cars!)

Re: IDF dimensions

I own a very special Chinese IDF42..... goodness only knows how they made that - normally they do “precise” duplications.

Genuine Weber’s clearly say it

Take off the exhaust motor mount and use that.
