The headlamp washers don't work because the relay has an intermittent fault. A new relay is £68+vat! Ouch. So I pulled mine apart, re-soldered every joint, remade all the spade connections and the headlight washers now work!! Well one of them does, the other lamp is just a trickle so I'll fix that blockage later.
Great news today is that the new seatbelt arrived and was a snug fit!
And a customer of mine (I own a chippy in Cardiff) who owns a local garage thinks he might be able to do a sympathetic MOT for me too !! Woohoo !!
Scott its nice to have another boxer fan!! My first Alfa was a sud sprint with a 1.5 boxer sporting twin Dellorotos!! They were a pig, needing tuning every couple of weeks.
I've had 19 alfas over the years mostly twinnys, but some Bussos too. But to be honest, the one that always sounded the best was the boxer.
I bought this project to share with my boys and teach them a bit about engineering.
So far I'm loving this project. It's a fantastic little car, and once MOT'd I'll have the paint sorted. The green is growing on me and with red callipers actually looks pretty good !!!
Loving being back in alfa ownership!!
