Thanks for your help David C and SEARS.
I was looking at this car after travelling 120 miles. I found it would not pull over 4500 rpm but just coughed when on the test drive.
I disconnected the MAF, the car would not tickover but pulled in 1st and 2nd up to max rpm freely.
I have now bought the car and driven it back gently to Norfolk with the MAF connected.
Some mechanical work to do on the car, headlights, cambelt and of course replace the MAF censor.
Other than that, a very nice original low mileage car with service history.
Have classic spider and use the classic forum regularly, now I will be also visiting this forum as the proud owner of a 156 2L. (Two red Alfa’s, I must be mad).
If you went to the East Anglia Alfa day last Sunday, the spider was there, pictures under Just Images section.
