Re: S1 upper arms silent block

Thanks Huib, I don't want to update to series 2 as I said I find the design excellent and I much rather stick with it. I will review what is in good conditions and what needs replacing and let You know. Bolts and metal bushings are fine, only the plastic ones need to be rebuilt. On the bottom ones I...

Re: S1 upper arms silent block

I think I will need to do the same. Do also the lower arms have the same system? I did not find the metal sleve inside, now I'm worried I threw it away!
I wonder if I can get them 3d printed, probably easier to groove them and I could use Nylon?

Re: S1 upper arms silent block

Apologies, for the 3 posts, please do delete them. It was funny the first time I saw the way control arms work on S1 it reminded me of an upgrade available for 911's: https://www.elephantracing.com/porsche/911/bushings-bearings-for-911/polybronze-bearings/ I believe they've even patented it, too bad...

S1 upper arms silent block

Hello, I believe I made a mistake when I took apart the silent blocks of the upper arms of my S1. The silen block seems to be made of 3 parts. The rubber grommet that sits into the cast alloy tower, an inner plastic sleeve (like nylon with a shape very similar to a motorbike handle) and a metallic i...

Re: Fulvia Ignition switch

I guess short of buying a new ignition barrel You can try to rebuild yours. That said would it be a bad idea to add a relay to activate the starter solenoid? It still takes a fair amount of power to pull in the solenoid and activate the starter engine, wouldn't a relay reduce the load on the ignitio...

Re: Front wheel bearing nut removal

Thanks Huib, I finally got the bearings nuts off both upfront and rear. Santa came early and a large battery powered impulse wrench did the trick. A good friend of mine has his workshop nearby my place, and his 1/2 inch impact gun powered by compressed air couldn't make it. This brushless tools are ...

Re: Front wheel bearing nut removal

Hi Huib, I don't have the hubs with me right now, but I'm referring to the inner bearing wheel nut. The one that it's on the inside of the hub facing the differential, my bearings have lots of play. You cannot get to it when the car is on the road. Maybe one could remove halfshaft, brake caliper and...

Re: Front wheel bearing nut removal

it's funny because I've taken the whole car apart with no drama at all, until I got stuck on hubs and flywheel pulley bolt (different story, similar mess) :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: I've learned patiente pays off, and the last I want is ruin expensive parts! I'll probably give it another shot tod...

Front wheel bearing nut removal

Hello guys, new challenge here. I'm refurbishing my S1 front hubs (but I'm guessing rear will also make me struggle) and I cannot get the bearing nut off. I do have the correct tool, and I did use plenty of penetrant oil for a few days, but they just don't move. I've tried with a very long breaking ...

Re: Leaky Valves, Low Compression. Many Problems?

Bmarler and Huib are both putting You on the right path. If fuel gets into the oil You either have an issue with the fuel pump or with carburators float levels. Both are relatively easy to check. In fact if You bottle feed the carburators You can check both the level in the floats. If the carburator...
