Restauring my Lancia Fulvia 1200

Rate this Entry
I took the Fulvia to the mountain roads. Superb handling, spongy breaks, sufficient power, poor idle, some water consumption.
I took the car to the best guy in town (a former FIA tech. inspector) and we started checking things.

Cylinder #3 was low on compression, one of the ignition adjustment springs was broken, purging the break lines didn't help. I knew I had some work to do.
Although the car passed emission tests with flying colors, I decided that id Fulvia was going to become a fun to drive car.

As I had to return to the US for a couple of months, I left the car in the body shop where to I sent the group 4 wheel covers.

These are the pictures they just sent me:

Next we will open the engine and decide on what to do.
