    Re: Is It Wrong - Twin Lights

    i think the vere lancia car has bigger inner lights (ala fanalone). the u.s. spec cars had twin 5-3/4. fitting the larger inner lights makes fitting the factory surround impossible so you would have...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    there's lots to choose from for seam sealer. i hardly use brush on sealer any more unless i'm trying to match an existing texture. for new applications i prefer to use a two part sealer like fusor....

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    i would seam weld it. just take your time. cover the weld with seam sealer when finished.
  5. Re: Black coating in boot area - fulvia coupè?

    if the spots you're looking at are at the perimeter it's probably brush on seam sealer that makes it look thick. if it's all over it's a sort of undercoat type material. i have often used the brush...

    Re: Electronic Ignition?

    yep, those are the ones. i would think the selection of chokes would be wider. 40 is way too big for a street engine. i bet there's a way to get smaller.

    Re: Electronic Ignition?

    Re: Electronic Ignition?

    i have a spare set of coils from my wifes 2.5l jetta. i think they're the same as the 1.8t or 2.0t as well. when i get a chance i'll see if they're long enough to reach the plugs. the fulvia seems...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    when i have to weld in tight areas like that i tend to grab the stick electrode. you can bend it to get around corners and through tiny openings. many shops don't have stick welders around any more,...

    that was steve right? i thought he did a wasted spark setup, i didn't know he did a fully sequential cop setup. if you did want to go the cop route, there's a lot of coils that would work. i have...
  12. Re: Alternative ventilation/heating fan for S1 coupe.

    i don't think it's a big deal to free wheel the muffin fan, i doubt you get it up to any rpm that would damage it. i've been holding off taking my heater box apart too, looks like a chore. i have...

    Re: Sudden loss of spark

    i'd check the voltage at the coil, and see if the distributor side shows the points opening and closing. i've seen the little wire going from the coil to the points go bad (open).

    Re: S2 Break Servo removal tips and tricks

    don't push on until you know what you're taking apart there. that could be a linkage rod adjusted to a very specific length. if you extend it too far the brakes may not release.
