Thanks Mike, that is exactly what I am going to do, except I will run the distributor advance off one bank (via the "T"), and the brake booster off the other (from the end).

SWEET!

One thing you can thank your lucky stars about, is you have a later model Jalpa that uses the single booster with attached brake master cylinder.

The early Jalpa's like my old one, had 2 separate boosters (one behind each headlamp). What a nightmare. Even after I had my boosters rebuilt, I still could not get the vacuum function to work properly! When I pressed the brake pedal, the pressure would not release and the brakes stayed locked up until I opened a caliper bleeder valve). I ended up just disconnecting the vacuum assist and went "manual" brakes the entire time I had the car!

Took a bit more pedal pressure, but at least I never had the brakes lock up again!

Thanks Mike, one is these days I would like to pick your brain about CT ownership, as that is my next purchase. It cant be too much more difficult than the Jalpa can it?

one thing the prior owner did that seemed to make sense was to stamp the timing marks on the harmonic balancer so you can check the timing without having to lift the car up.....bad idea Lamborghini

I verified those markes today, and they were spot on.

The Countach can get pretty pricey. For example, if you need a clutch (and you want a dealer or mechanic to do it), hold onto your wallet. The list price for just the throwout bearing, clutch disc and pressure plate is about $8000.00. Then figure 20-30 hours of labor to pull and replace th engine ($120+ an hour). Most places will quote you around $12,000 to do the clutch (parts and labor). And then once the engine is out, have the starter rebuilt, replace hoses, gaskets, seals, o-rings...... You get the picture.
