Well Happy Gone and done it . . . . . . .

As of today I am the proud (I Hope) owner of . . . . . . . . . . .

Alfa Sprint 1.7, 62K, restored but a bit rough round the edges and a bit grubby. Chuffed and nervous at the same time . . . .

Am now a two Alfa driveway

Yes the one from Dundee. Well spotted, prize choccy biccy winging its way to you . . .

Just - very roughly - balanced the carbs tonight with a neighbour. Already running night and day to what it was before. Has the most delightful rasp
Now to find some details on how to set 'em up properly 'cos the haynes manuals only cover up to 1.5 and this is 1.7.

PS - CJ once I get it taxed and insured I'll bring it round to you. It's boggin inside but hey - ho. Get there eventually.

Really? A neighbour?

Would use a flow meter and a screwdriver myself, but each to their own

I love the raspy Boxers, I had a 1.5 Ti Alfa 33 with twin Dell'Orto carbs, I used to drive with the windows down whenever the ambient temperature was above freezing point!
