    Re: Non starter

    Great, glad to hear it! Could also be that the lines weren't fully primed, or maybe the fuel pickup in the tank had some rust or other debris blocking it that fell away. I once suspected that on my...

    Re: Non starter

    As noted above, that should only normally be possible if the oil-light switch has been disconnected, or if the relay it activates has been bypassed; in stock configuration, the fuel pump should only...

    Re: Best spark plugs

    BTW, never tighten spark plugs on a warm engine, as thermal expansion of the aluminum head can facilitate stripping the spark plug hole threads. I had to repair a couple spark plug holes with...

    Re: Non starter

    Running briefly w/ a manual prime of the carb def. sounds like a fuel supply issue. Note that normal starting procedure should be to fully depress the throttle pedal once before cranking; this sets...

    Re: Best spark plugs

    I like the NGK V-Power BPR6EY, or the regular (non-V-power) BPR6ES is fine too.

    Re: Fuel pump

    Carter P60504 -- proper low pressure (2.5-4psi), quiet, reliable, and the gerotor impeller design makes for smoother fuel delivery than the usual piston-driven "cube" style cheap pumps. It comes with...

    Re: Need Zagato Motor mounts

    Only mention I could find of a substitute mentioned a Renault 21 diesel, no mention of which damper that would work for as each side has a different length. Also found OperaHawk mention his mechanic...

    Re: DAT 34 Carb on Scorpion

    The vapor cannister port was meant to capture vapors off the float bowl; you're fine without it. As for the A/C fast-idle port, might be simpler to just turn up the main idle slightly in hot weather...

    Re: Need Zagato Motor mounts

    And alas, BetaBoyz only list a replacement for the gearbox-end one. If by "shot" you mean they're totally seized up, you could just keep them as-is; if you mean they telescope without any resistance,...
  10. Re: '81 Beta Coupé FI - Accessing fuel line from firewall?

    I did mine via the passenger-side wheelarch, had to remove the arch liner and rubber gaiter around the tierod, was still a PITA to access. If I had to do it again, I might lube up the barb and use...

    Re: Need Zagato Motor mounts

    ...which makes the BetaBoyz PU version of interest, as the polyurethane should be impervious to oil contamination unlike the OEM rubber.

    BTW, if you find the damper shocks are fine but have...
  12. Re: 1981 Lancia Zagato 2.0 Fuel Injection Not getting Fuel into Cylinders?

    Speaking of, never touch ohmmeter leads to anything on the ECU side of the harness, as the meter voltage to test ohms could fry something in the ECU -- i.e., always unplug the component you want to...
  13. Re: Integrale winter/all-season tires in the US

    What is the wheel width? You might be able to consider a 195/55R15 or 215/45R15 -- e.g., the General AltiMAX RT45 is available in 195/55R15 and seems to dominate every A/S comparison test TireRack...
  14. Re: 1981 Lancia Zagato 2.0 Fuel Injection Not getting Fuel into Cylinders?

    Brad Artigue's FIAT Bosch L-Jet guide may be helpful; aside from differing intake plenums and the specific location of some components, it's the exact same system as Lancia used -- PDF link here:...
  15. Re: 1981 Lancia Zagato 2.0 Fuel Injection Not getting Fuel into Cylinders?

    Could be clogged injectors if it was sitting a long time with bad gas, or maybe a bad ground to the injectors? I seem to recall there should be a ground wire to the head or intake cam tower that's...
  16. Re: Help! Car won't start after removing front lights, '81 Zagato...

    If you have a starter relay, try pulling the wire that goes from there to the starter solenoid and (in neutral gear!) touch that directly to the battery (+) terminal. If that engages the starter,...

    Re: Alternator Frustration

    On my '79, the mountings have rubber/plastic bushings to isolate heat/vibration, so a dedicated ground wire/strap is necessary; it just attaches to a stud in the alt's outer housing, from there to...

    Re: Alternator Frustration

    Consider replacing the ground cable/strap connected to the alternator housing; mine has grounds to both the engine block and the chassis.
  19. Re: Zagato has intermittent starting, ignition switch?

    No need for any of that if you can identify which wire gets energized when the key turns to Start. Just snip it at a convenient spot, splice some extra length onto each end as needed to reach where...
  20. Re: Zagato has intermittent starting, ignition switch?

    Basically the same effect as installing a relay, and a proper solenoid isn't necessary here as the starter already has one attached, so you just need the relay to switch battery current to the stock...

    Re: Original carb for 79 Zagato

    Stock would have been a 30/32 DHTA, so a 32 DHTA is a (slight) improvement if it's also on an 1800 manifold. The '79-only stock manifold can't make good use of any larger carbs, as its carb mount has...

    Wanted: Re: Rear suspenion link for Zagato

    Overall axial depth, from the inner disc face to outer edge of the hub boss. It just occurred to me the depth of that hub boss could differ, as the fronts are mounted with a spacer plate, whereas the...

    Re: Weber DAT linkage

    More likely you could just get a custom spacer made, but as you say, that may make it too tall, not to mention changing intake geometry and performance characteristics. I infer you swapped linkage...

    Re: New Lancisti SF Bay area

    That Mobilube HD Plus 80W-90 appears to be GL-5 rated, which may pose a problem. I can't speak to Fulvias per se, but Betas need a GL-1 gear oil, as the GL-5 is meant for modern hypoid gears and too...
