Alfa Spider 4

alfas have worked fine for decades on the mechanical pump, before the injected cars came out requiring electric pumps!
Keep your old pump, would be my advice.......it worked fine on my 62 sprint for 20+years of ownership in all weathers!......
Obviously, as above, make sure pump, points, plugs, leads and sparkplugs are good.......the basics.

....couple of pumps of the throttle to prime the webers and 'maybe' in v. cold climes pull the choke out a bit once she has started, just to help her move off!
