Ha ha - looks very similar to the sump on my Sud Beninca's made 24 years back! Have never had a bearing issue since fitting.

Hi all! Sorry for the lack of updates! Have been messing around with the Alfa for a bit! Took her down to a mechanics to get a pre-roadworthy inspection and have a little more to do it seems. The list given is below:


Already ticked some off like the heater fan, reverse lights, front strut bearing, seat belt retraction and wheel bearing. Have ordered all parts for the oil leak (itís from the selector input on the gearbox) which will have the advantage of giving a new selector bush as well, the gear selector is horribly wobbly! I think the easiest option on the brakes is to get Enzed or someone to make up the hoses, there seems confusion as to what hose actually fits mine!

Anyway first event tomorrow, Khanacross! Itís all lowish speed, first and second gear mostly on a grass track. Am looking forward to it!

And thank you for the tips! Will look into a baffled sump. Is there an issue with the oil pick up on these things?
Also it pumps out a fair bit of blue smoke on start up which seems to disappear pretty quickly when you take it for a run. Iím thinking stem seals?

I was under the impression that all QVs came with red carpet and the chequered print seats?
