Re: Ignition timing point

i have a couple of thoughts about that. the 123 distributor is a very high quality device. once installed you should never have timing issues again. only the changing of the consumables is needed and those are much cheaper and easier to find than the original marelli. (talking 1300 here, i don't hav...

Re: Buying Advice

hello and welcome. the car looks very tidy in the pictures. the s1 cars are so nice when they haven't been modified, and this one seems to fit that description. of course, without good underside or engine pictures it is impossible to tell if there's any issues. and there's no substitute for a pre-pu...

Re: Steering box - replace SAE 90 oil with steering lube (Penrite)

i used a pump like this one: https://www.amazon.com/attwood-11891D7-Gear-Lube-Pump/dp/B00A3I3AZQ if that link stops working, just google gear lube pump. you'll get a ton of options. a simple, cheap plastic pump works just fine for this. the only problem is, the penrite container threads don't match ...

Re: Steering box - replace SAE 90 oil with steering lube (Penrite)

i have a couple of thoughts regarding this. i'm currently using this pennrite lube in mine due to a persistent leak. it does a very good job, no reduction in feel or increase in effort as far as i can tell. it's a little difficult to get it in the box as it's so thick. i used a gear lube pump over s...

Re: rear suspension leaf spring

the car body will provide resistance, but not enough. you will simply lift the car off the stands. you still need to load the boot with enough weight to keep the car on the stands and get the axle in the proper position. having the car on stands is an advantage though, then you have room to slip und...

Re: Dynamo change to alternator

I'm looking forward to hear what huib has to say on this, but in the mean time, I wonder why you wish to make the change? The dynamo, when equipped with a modern, solid state regulator does a very good job. Almost the same as an alternator. If you must make the swap, there are companies that make a ...

Re: s3 appia front wheel bearing nut

ok, I feel foolish now. I have two copies of the workshop manual and didn't realize there was an appendix section in the back with all of the torque specs. I never would have seen the wheel hub torque listed right below the head bolt sequence. Thanks for keeping me humble...and reminding me to doubl...

Re: s3 appia front wheel bearing nut

thank you huib, this is most helpful. what book are these scans taken from? i have the workshop manual but didn't see these pages anywhere. i wondered if there was a dati tecnici book for appia but didn't see it listed in the cd's for sale. one more thing of note, the cap nut on the hub seems like i...

s3 appia front wheel bearing nut

i've looked in my manual and tried a search of all the forums but i can't find anywhere the setting procedure for the front wheel bearing nut. the bearings are not tapered roller bearings but more like angular contact instead. is the nut simply brought up tight and secured? is there a torque value f...
