    What a pain! Maybe there will be a opportunity to make some other improvements or tidy some bits up while its pulled apart; just trying to be positive!

    Yes, there are - I will need to get the instrument pod out before the dash top can come off, so I might see about trimming the viewing ports for the secondary instruments. I might also look at replacing (or adding some series resistance to) the tachometer calibration potentiometer (to fix the rpm reading approximately 200 rpm low).

    It is probably time I replaced the coolant anyway, after 2-3 years the corrosion inhibitors become ineffective. In our increasingly mild climate it is the corrosion inhibitors that are my main priority in a coolant solution, as the Alfa engine uses an iron block with alloy cylinder heads. With the system drained down I might re-think/replace the hoses and clips just to be on the safe side!
