Thanks Richard. Yes, it has oil and was run and tuned in the workshop. It did however stand for a good 6 months or so thereafter and we didn’t turn it by hand at all during that period.Bugger. Just as well you have a warranty to fall back on. I assume you had oil in it (easily overlooked sometimes) and that it had been pre-oiled before startup.
Hope you don`t have the same luck with the Ti Jannes.
Thank you for the kind words paladin105. Your first post too. A warm welcome to the BB. Sounds like you have a project of your own. Would love to hear about it! This is the best place to search for information or ask questions if you don't already find the answers.Thank you VeloceRosso for documenting your restoration and sharing such an interesting journey. Sorry to learn about your engine problem while you appear on the home straight. I hope this latest problem is resolved quickly without headache and soon represents another challenge you have overcome.
Thanks for the motivation and for providing valuable firsthand knowledge and generating many learned comment from members over what is a stunning restoration process and result thus far.
Your comprehensive thread and those like it from seasoned Alfa Romeo restorers are an invaluable aid and an inspiration for those of us who aim to do the same. Well done, I look forward to posts of you crossing the finish line.
There are now 41 RHD 105.37 cars listed on the registryThis is an excellent find. Does it have 10537 on the plate?
If so its pretty rare, RHD 105.37 cars ..
Production numbers are 1407 + 380 CKD cars. This being in South Africa must be one of the 380.
I have one for sale at the moment and only 20 RHD cars have been found to survive,
