Re: Differences Fulvia Zagato 1,3 - 1,3s ?

don't forget there is also a 1.2 version of the series one sport. i don't have the production figures for each variant but the information is known. aside from the engine differences there is also the matter of steel vs aluminum body panels. i think the 1.3s is a bit later and am not sure if any of ...

Re: Bleeding super duplex part. 3

is it possible that the brake grease has plugged the tiny holes in the pistons?
i only use brake fluid for lubrication when re-assembling. and keep everything clean as an operating room. (or cleaner)

Re: Bleeding super duplex system

i don't have a brake limiter on mine so i don't know the exact positioning for it. but if there's a measurement in the workshop manual i would bet that it's taken with the can being level, and the weight on the axles.(wheels)

Re: Fulvia Ignition switch

yes, the starter is serviceable. but did you do the voltage tests i suggested earlier? did you test and check the battery primary cables and their connections? if the starter turns slow, either the battery, primary cables, or starter are having issues. that's a pretty small list of things to check. ...

Re: Front wheel bearing nut removal

[quote=Huib post_id=1424422 time=1602760671 user_id=167] Aha. You are using the method once described in the Magazine of the Lancia Motor Club. You need 5 people, a 2 meter extension and half a day.

Re: Front wheel bearing nut removal

as you're finding out those things can really be tough to remove. i think you're doing the right things, but maybe a slight variation will help. for penetrating oil i find nothing works better than a 50/50 mix of acetone and automatic transmission fluid. light heating will help carry it into the thr...

Re: Leaky Valves, Low Compression. Many Problems?

it's difficult to diagnose an engine based on these short video clips, but i think there may be a combination of things causing the rough running. start with an oil change so you know you have something to lubricate the poor engine. if the fuel pump is suspect use a temporary fuel supply and gravity...

Re: Fulvia S1 subframe measurements

i don't use powder coat or any other fairly brittle coating (like por15) on chassis parts. as they flex, cracks occur and water migrates under the surface. this also happens with a rock chip. by the time you notice a problem the damage is worse than it appears as the moisture has penetrated a consid...

Re: Fulvia S1 subframe measurements

it may not be possible to gain that much movement without cutting and re-welding the outriggers. you may also want to re-install the bolt-in crossmember at this time too. i would make some alignment bosses to locate the outrigger holes before doing any cutting. i think you're on a good path, it will...
