Been a busy few days!

Seems to be a solid little beast -cant see any welding needed anywhere. 'Buggalugs' has been at the brakes -somewhat unsuccessfully -but he claims its a runner (or was -a year ago)-and I cant see why it shouldnt be -once the distributor is sorted!
It feels like incompetent spannering -rather than any real probs -that has kept this off road 20+ years. In store for a week or two -whilst I sort those at home.
Got my little 850 saloon back too:-
Engine is apparently seized solid -so I'm enquiring of previous owners to see if its poor storage or a mechanical mishap.
Brimmed with diesel -I'll try gently in a few weeks.
Perhaps more importantly -the body is near mint! The two tiny holes mentioned are indeed tiny -and non structural- I think it would go straight through.
Brakes 'seem' to work, steering feels fine- and although the odometer has read 24750 for at least 4 MOT's -it doesnt feel as if its done much more. Chuffed would be an understatement!
Then I MOT'd my Renault 17:-
Went straight thru -then the starter motor failed and the bonnet cable broke!
4 hrs on Sunday got the bonnet open -and the motor off (hell of a jobbie); now all I have to do is work out why!
Oh -then tax it -1st Dec I guess.
Oh yes -the Alfa:-
Parked up in the corner for a couple of weeks -its been there over 18 months.
BUT -it started 2nd turn, drove out on fully pumped tyres, cleaned up and ticked over Ok -and superficially seems no worse the wear for its sojourn. I need to get under it though -when I might reconsider my options!
Then this morning the Mrs returned with no clutch on the Croma.
Why do these nasty jobs always queue up as the weather turns?

To be pedantic, wasn't the FIRE engine the later 999cc or 750cc, and the old 903cc (127/panda/Uno) the pushrod one developed from the 600/850?I'll get my coat
-I've a spare 903 FIRE sitting in a defunct 127 that should fit Ok -sump changes etc. Oooh -I love it!
