Re: just bought alfasud L 1975
That's just lovely, nice find!
Alfasud L is the 'Lusso' with stainless trim around the tail and the sills, over riders, rev counter and the grey plastic trim on the dash plus fabric trim iirc. The Alfasud N was the boggo basic version and the 5M was the L with the 5 speed gearbox. I don't think there are any Alfasud L's left in the UK now. They were quite rare new and by the time I started with an Alfa dealer in 1984 they had almost all gone anyway.
I remember that colour too. Aged 16 I was looking for a first car and discovered a 1975 Alfasud N in that very colour around the back of the Alfa dealer that gave me a job a year later. I couldn't get insured...........
You'll find doing the stem seals a really nice job. The heads are so easy to remove (drop the exhaust and fift the inlet manifold) and a 1975 car may not even have the cam belt covers although I'm sure it will have. Strip the heads, lap in the valves, new seals and it'll be perfect. Set the tappets with the heads on the bench and be sure to get the cam timing right!
