After doing a lot of work on recently purchased '67 Duetto, I finally got her on the road and boy I have missed the beautiful note of these cars! Grinning ear to ear.
Bought the car in June and have been doing the following work (slowly) on the car since November:
-Alfaholics SS exhaust - love it and bolted right on
-Pertronix dizzy - great addition, easy to install and car fired right up.
-New water pump as car was running hot but this was due to a stuck thermostat
-Installed new Weber rubber mounts and balanced and tuned Webers
-Replaced brake line to MC [bled brakes - many times] and replaced fluid reservoir
-Took out dash, installed dash cover, replaced all lights with LEDs and reinstalled
-Changed lug bolts from LH to RH on drivers side [screwed up the rear wheel bearing so had to replace that)
-Put in tranny and differential oil using Redline oil
-PLX wideband O2 sensor - great little device
Car was smoking quite a bit while tuning and diagnosing issues (PO said car was sitting for some time), but since I have put on a couple hundred miles the smoke is almost all gone.
Unfortunately she will go back into storage until October on Monday as work will take me out of the US. So when I get back, I will tackle the front and rear suspension, new headlights, replace floor boards and think about a paint job.
Plus I have to mention that the guys at Classic Alfa have been great as the majority of parts have been sourced from them as the service is spot-on, prices very good (even with shipping and exchange rate) and shipping quick (order on Thursday arrive on Monday).
Wish the Penguins were not playing right now, otherwise I would still be out in the car!
