Well I didn't get chance to check the belts but I did change the HT leads and started the under sealing.
I found 2 holes missed by the MOT tester. One in the near side rear footwell where there used to be a drain hole. Another on the near side half way down the floor next to the joint with the sill.
Booked it into a local garage for welding Both holes are very small, the one near the sill is smaller than a 5p. But still needs doing.
I'm on my second tank of fuel now so hoping for some smoother running as the old petrol is diluted.
I'm using fuelly for both my Alfas to monitor consumption and the 145 only managed 24.9mpg. Ouch! But to be honest I did rag it for most of those 220 miles. 😜
I'll be running it for this whole tank before I investigate further. Strangely though the revs drop now like they should!??!?!? 👍
It's all very wierd.
Loving being back in alfa ownership!!
