    Re: Lancia Clubs in the USA

    Yeah, I know. I've been a member of the ALC, just can't always find an event I can actually make it to. At one time there was talk of organizing local drives, but I think that kind of fizzled. Guess...

    Re: Lancia Clubs in the USA

    It was, ahem, a while ago. Maybe around 1990? I guess it made a bit of an impression. I ran into the same fellow a couple times later through similar car interests but we did not repeat our initial...

    Re: Lancia Elephant emblems ciolour?

    Bravo Ed. Good finding that. That was essentially the point I was trying to make, is that it was used prior to the early 60's referenced above. I think I remember reading it first in Brian Long's...

    Re: Lancia Clubs in the USA

    Excellent points Paul!
    This reminds me of my experience, including the first time I saw another Lancia on the road (mini-market parking lot actually). It was a late Fulvia. The owner then proceeded...

    Re: Lancia Elephant emblems ciolour?

    It actually predates all of these. It was used earlier in racing as a mascot and later adopted by club and then with more recent commemorative models and keychains.

    Re: Beta Engine Vibration Stuts

    Those have been hard to come by for awhile. At least the one side. Some have found replacements different places and I was searching for where I had that stored. I'm not certain, but I did come...

    Re: Dual Weber Carb Kits?

    I believe it does. These have always been common issues when fitting dual carbs in the Scorp.

    Also verify the pickup in the dizzy. The wires frequently get cracked or frayed.

    Re: Beta Brake Pads

    Front thickness on new pads is about double the rears. Also even though you can use worn fronts on the rear, to be proper they should have little "ears" on the back. Looks kind of like dual nubs that...

    Re: Decisions - lancia

    The Montecarlo is a little tight to get in and out of, but once in there it should fit like a glove. Not as much room as some cars but handles better than any of the three. Not stunning power in...

    For Sale: Re: Door lock knobs and frames

    Great idea. These are commonly broken and frequently needed. Well done
    Could these be done in black or dark brown to match what was used most, or do they have to be in blue from the process?

    Fulvia's have gotten a lot more popular. Remember they may require you to have or make some more complex tools than early Japanese. Since you're in the bay area, you might check with Jaan. He works...

    Did you take the motor apart too? Clean out all the gunk, regrease, and clean and attend to power connections. It may not be getting enough juice either.

    Re: Beta P.W. Retro Help Needed

    The simplest answer is take it apart, clean out all the old gunk and grease, rebuild the system and lube it all up good. You may have to replace cable or flip it around to get less worn side. If you...

    Re: springs?

    Cool. Cutting the springs is safer than heating them to lower. You just need to cut same amount (start with one coil) and make sure they seat the same in the mounts. Using a cutting disc on the...

    Yes, you can. Its kinda spendy. Look up the west coast distributor for Koni at sears point. I know people have had good luck with them. You can also just cut off a coil on each. Will make it stiffer...
