Alfasud : Recomissioning req'd !!
I am relatively new to this club but a true Alfa fan, currently having a 147 2.0 TS and a 1979 Alfasud Sprint 1.5. (and a Lancia Montecarlo !)
The 'Sud is a beautiful one owner car from new (30k miles) but needs recommisioning as it's been off the road for about 4 years now (just bought it).
The front calipers have seized, so I need to know TWO things : What is the best way of freeing them off - any tips or advice most welcome. If they cannot be freed off then of course they will have to be removed and reconditioned/replaced - can the disk & calipers be removed without removing the engine ? I am sure I have done so on an early 'Sud I had back in the 80's but a few garages have told me that it ain't possible (hmmmm....).
Secondly, as the fuel is stale and so has contaminated the tank, lines and carb, I am thinking about a recon. tank and fuel lines at the very least - any ideas on the best source of spares ? Any advice as to the best way to approach this job would be much appreciated.
Really looking forward to getting this pampered 'Sud back on the road.
