Question for Alfanuts.
You soaked the OSV in paint thinner and cleaned a while back. Have you checked it lately? Was cleaning as you described effective?
Just bought a '77 spieder with 23k original miles. Have not delved into this beyond the bottom hose which had some black crud in it. Figured I would do as you did and clean all of this system.
you can bet your bottom dollar, it hasn't been cleaned in 23k miles
yes. I do it every year (max every two)
Pretty clean now.
Alfa recommended cleaning it every few thousand miles (read this somewhere, but can't find it again, might even be in my WSM or a TSB maybe)
edit: oops sorry, question was for alfanuts.......
