This beautiful 851 had been stood for 5 years in a shed. The owner dragged it out – with the possible intention of selling it – but it obviously needed some sorting. 5 years’ worth of stale petrol had killed the fuel pump, so that needed changing. Interestingly £300 buys you a Ducati pump, but we used a car-type Walbro (an identical item) that landed at £100…

New belts and fluids, plus a thorough going over finished the service. Lovely job!

Right up our street this and a pleasure to work on... stood for five years but now ready to go.
