trying to justify buying t-spark 75 with issues


I'm looking at a 2.0 75 with 15k on it

Its got rattle in the driveshaft, high clutch friction point and low brake takeup, and a few minor issues, but the body and engine is sound.

Any ideas about difficulty of repairing these issues? owner is asking au$5k "neg"

Re: trying to justify buying t-spark 75 with issues

I am no 75 expert by any means,
but i`d say those faults you mentioned are not hard to remedy
the clutch problem could be the slave cylinder, or the clutch.
low brake pedal could be worn pads.
and the prop is probably worn doughnuts...
all are not too difficult DIY jobs if you are dont mind spannering!
~(if you bought it some of the Alfa manuals for it are here:
.:BerlinaSportivo - Sports Saloons on the net:. )

main things as you say are the bodyshell is good and free of rot.
and the engine and box are good.

almost service items, most 75s (in the UK ate least) have many more issues than that.

Go for it.
