I have been involved with the Allante for about 15 years. I do have quite a bit of knowledge of the car, but nothing close to Tom or Dick, and probably Johnny Monzo. Unfortunately a lot of the info that is put out there is well meaning, but not always correct. Thus when I need accurate info I do look to these people. I have always had a very good result. Dick has put a lot of his very valuable info (brake diagnosis) on his web page for anyone to read and take advantage of, along with the GREAT expense of reproducing, and warehousing parts. I am thankful that these people CAN make a living supporting these cars, without them the cars would be difficult to keep going. Enough preaching, hope all is well with your car.
