    Morning from the glooooom that is Chichester, where did Spring go?

    Had a good day on the Brera yesterday, just the timing, stretch and aux belts to go back on.

    Fitted all the turbo, manifolds inc the coolant and finally felt that I was winning. I hope it still starts

    I’ve been quite busy lately, fixed the 164, passed my Motorbike test and bought a new bike.

    Off to Malta next week for a sales meeting!

    Good morning everybody,

    A reasonably clement weather forecast for the next few days.

    Yesterday it didn't rain, freeze, fog, blow a gale, thunder or snow so I rushed into Monmouth in the GTV to jetblast the winters salt off in the afternoon sunshine.
    It now looks a bit strange in factory nero instead of light grey but I guess I'll get used to it in time, as one does.
    The exhaust note sounded good on the run home with the occasional 5 cylinders in 'highly tuned 60's oily plugs' style. Nice uneven burble on tickover but sweet as a nut over 3000 rpm!
    Probably not recommended to jetwash the engine bay but I always do to check the waterproofing and that's the first time I've had a job to add to the list.
    Todays GTV task - Polly *hit, rather than sponge off the usual Crow ditto!

    Postman has just delivered for the 'other car' a sparkly new CNC machined flanged brass sump plug from Sigglesthorne (East Yorkshire, where else).
    Question is how to remove the original which has been 'killed by 1000 cuts' over the last 43 years and presents a primitively rounded cone instead of a spanner hex.
    Answer - A 50 year old cold chisel carefully applied to the outside of the flange and struck powerfully by a gurt lump hammer of unknown vintage!
    I now wonder when the gungy black greasy stuff in the sump was last changed?

    Have a fun-packed day Guys. See you at Combe Nick
    Peter

    The current menagerie

    ITALIAN: 1999 Alfa Romeo 916 GTV6 'Nero' in Nero.
    2000 Alfa Romeo GTV 916 Twinspark - SORN'd for rolling chassis/body parts.

    ENGLISH: 1975 Lotus Elite Mk2 in Carnival Red.
    Last project before I resigned from the company.
