My project for the last three days has been getting the red 75 3 litre back on the road after two years in the garage so that my son can start driving it. I got the alternator reconditioned and fitted. Getting those things off a 75 is not easy. I fitted a new piece of hose on the crankcase breather, re-fitted the throttle linkage, changed the coolant and cleaned out the expansion bottle and changed the oil. I siphoned out 40 litres of old fuel so as to avoid possible bad running and clogged injectors. Today I will put in 20 litres of 98 octane ULP and hope it fires up and runs with no leaks etc, then I will give it a much needed wash. It is hard to believe it is nearly ready to go after all this time.
