Re: The benefits of Alfa ownership - Part 1
Warm glowplugs - Far from home and many moons ago, newish 33 was running really rough. No Alfa dealers nearby, so into motor factors to get carb cleaner. They were out but directed me to local Toyota dealer. I found the place eventually, and discovered they had originally done Alfas. Listening to the engine, the mech realised that more than cleaner was required, so he stripped down the carbs and blew the jets, and then produced an absolutely immaculate 4 barrel mercury vacuum gauge and proceeded to tune the carbs up the scale. Charge nil, comment "We really miss working on these beauties".... Memory, priceless !
