Hello everyone, so finally I decided to buy my firs Alfa Romeo yeah very excited .

So the car looks very solid not rust at all but needs a lot of TLC. The engine start but the Spica sistem need a good tuneup which i understand is not that easy to do.
Maybe replace it for 2 40 Weber ?
Any suggestions will be very appreciated .

This is my very first Alfa Romeo 馃檪

First think i want to do is to make it drivable and enjoy it for a while then cosmetics part.

Yes the car is in the Bay area, can you suggest me a good honest Alfa mechanic in the area?

Save the SPICA! They are not hard to setup, just follow the instructions. Ask @Roadtrip for his thorough papers on SPICA, buy the SPICA guide from Wes Ingram and Pat Bradden's Alfa Bible. Ask lots of questions on the BB.

If you are a gearhead at all you'll find this an interesting system...

So does the car run at all?

Agree on keeping the SPICA system. I had it set up correctly the first time and have been keeping it dialed in using Wes Ingram's guide + YouTube + Alfa BB resources. You can buy the fuel adjustment tool online https://centerlinealfa.com/catalog/spica-mixture-adjustment-tool or make your own using a cheap socket from Harbor Freight and a Dremel grinding wheel/file. Just relocated to the Bay Area and anxious to drive Skyline soon.
