New Owner

I've just purchased a 53 reg 156 JTS (my first *****) and was wondering if anyone had any useful tips or warnings for general maintenance. I've checked the cambelt has been changed, clutch and gearbox etc but as I'm not familiar with the car are there any quirks I should know about?

Thanks.

Re: New Owner

hi and welcome...

There's lots of info on here, most importantly check your fluids (oil watere etc) regularly, let her warm (run for 10-15 minutes) before giving it some and most importantly have fun both here and in your bella....

Oh and post some pics...

Welcome to AO Jacal

You already seem to have some knowledge of potential Alfa problems. And as Simes has advised, always check fluid levels when they are close to operating temperatures.
