what a coincidence that i get emails from this forum regarding this thread the day i have a total mare with the alfa. fitted recon alternator and upper arms but while doing the alt i had to disconnect the fuel filter causing the fuel to drain back to tank. it has taken me hours to figure out that because of the slight gradient of my drive, only having a quarter tank of juice and with the lift pump being at the back of the tank i have run it dry. only had to take the whole back seating area out to figure it out, all while having a throbing toe from kicking a door and shes on my case for forgetting to leave the bin out meaning 2 weeks with an already full bin. bad day anyone?
