Re: EBC brake pads for Series 1

Thank you as always Huib for sharing your knowlledge here. I will fit the pads and report back here for future reference. I have fitted a new master cylinder and and after a bit of a struggle to bleed the rear brakes I don't have much more than 5mm play on the pedal and very happy with the feel. I h...

EBC brake pads for Series 1

Has anyone tried the EBC green stuff brake pads on their S1 Fulvia? Any feedback? A search on the forum did not turn anything up. I ordered some front and rear for my Rallye 1.3S and received them today. I have noticed that it has a wider groove in the back plate, rather than the slot where the pist...

Brake cylinders to caliper torque specs

Hi, I can not find the torque specs for the brake cylinders to the caliper body in the repair shop manual and a google search did not turn up anything. I am a bit worried that I will snap the bolts or strip the threads if I over tighten, but want to make sure they are properly tightened. Any advice ...

Re: Leaky Valves, Low Compression. Many Problems?

Shouldn't there be a lot more oil pumping around on the chain, cams and rockers? Maybe that engine is damaged due to oil starvation.

Re: Fulvia S1 subframe measurements

Years ago I built my first Fulvia out of 2 or 3 scrap cars. My subframe was undamaged, but while refitting I picked up that everything did not align 100%, especially after removing/ refitting some of the cross members after the subframe was back in the car. There is quite a lot of play/ movement pos...

Re: Bleeding super duplex system

Probably a silly question, but did you put the rear calipers back with bleed nipples at the top? I know about two cases where someone put the calipers back with the nipples at the bottom, as they fit either way, and would obviously be impossible to bleed. Also worth trying to bleed at the rear limit...

Re: Where do I find the old posts regarding cam timing?

Hi, I have checked the cam timing on my S1 Rallye 1.3S (818.303 engine, 818.342 cams) using the method described by Huib (2.2mm clearance +0.1mm to check). At 0.1mm both cams' timing is out by about one tooth on the flywheel (one tooth after/ left of "0") which should be about 3° as far as I know. S...

Re: Fulvia S1 brake pedal rod adjustment

Hi, I have fitted a new master cylinder now and noticed that there is no adjustment possible on the brake rod, only on the stop between the pedal and pedal box, so I will check the play there. Currently I am missing a return spring on the brake pedal. Is this the same as the clutch return spring so ...

RHD and LHD steering box worm and roller interchangeable?

Hi, I can't work this out in my head... would either the worm or roller shafts be the same in LHD and RHD steering box? The reason I ask is that sometimes new LHD steering boxes pop up on Ebay, but I would like to find a new RHD box. If the shafts are interchangeable you would be able to build a new...

Re: Ignition timing point

Hi Huib, do you prefer simply setting the timing to the factory manual or do you advance it a little. This seems to be suggested in a lot of forum topics. Also, what is you opinion of the 123 units? I have an original unit converted to electronic that works well, but I don't really trust that the me...
