    Re: Series 1 colour

    The S1 1,6HF came standard without bumpers and with solid-color paint (with outside 'Sebring' mirror in body color). There was an optional package -- "lusso", but never officially called that -- with...

    Re: Carburetor support strap

    Actually, there is some ram-air effect from the airbox 'snorkel', which draws cooler air next to the radiator, not behind it. As Marnix said, the Fulvia airbox was fully engineered and particularly...

    Re: Fulvia 1.3 Engine Differences

    Per 1969 FIA Appendix J, carbs, cams, and pistons / compression ratio were 'free', providing only that the number of carbs had to remain as stock and they had to be fitted without an adapter.

    Re: Fulvia 1.3 Engine Differences

    This isn't entirely correct. The factory sales brochures (both the color one from Oct 1969 and the b&w from Jan 1970) do indicate power as "130 metric b.h.p. at 6200 r.p.m." However, the Group 3...

    The photos seem to be postage-stamp size, but from what I can see it looks great. And it's wonderful that you're getting it back on the road

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I'm very familiar with Vere; they reconstructed my works engine. They've had that 1604cc "1300" on their web site for years; I'm not sure they'll still build you one. If they will, then the answer to...

    Re: Importing vintage cars into California, USA

    The Fulvia wasn't sold in the US after MY 1967, so no 1975s were sold here. If they had been sold here, it'd be fine to import one into CA, but as it is you'll need a post-'67 work-around.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    An 80mm bore is possible -- that was done for the prototype 1401cc competition units in period. But I wonder how you propose to achieve an 80mm stroke. Even the taller 1600 only runs a 75mm stroke...

    Re: electronic Marelli distributor

    It's not that there weren't good ICs in the '70s; just that they weren't very sophisticated. Unlike modern electronic distributors such as the 123 Ignition unit, this Marelli retains the centrifugal...

    Re: Key question

    Standard Fulvia keying is black head for ignition and doors / white head for glove box, trunk and gas filler door. If the car has the original ignition and door locks, the same key should work. If...

    Re: electronic Marelli distributor

    Never heard of this one. My general feeling is that I wouldn't put a lot of faith in an electronic distributor from that era.

    Re: Iridium spark plugs in Series 1?

    I've been running iridiums in my S1 1600 for years (I run Denso, but I'm sure NGKs are good). I never touch the factory gap (the standard gap is based on different electrode behavior, so there's not...

    Re: Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    Yes -- as I often point out myself, the Fulvia '3' is simply a late S2, with a slightly variant spec. I plead simple laziness in this instance

    All S2s run alternators; All S1s run generators -- except the S1 1,6HF, which runs an alternator (with the exception of the first +/- dozen prototype 1600 engines)

    Thanks for that -- and I'm not in any way trying to dissuade you from your choice of Amsoil. It does, however, confirm that you weren't testing Redline Shockproof, which is indeed a more recent...

    Re: Synthetic gearbox oils in the USA

    Not offended at all; Amsoil makes excellent synthetic lubricants. My question regarding the comparison test was whether you'd tested Redline 75W90 or the lower drag Lightweight Shockproof.

    Re: Synthetic gearbox oils in the USA

    I was lucky enough to have a rolling road and was able to see an improvement in power output over 3 other oils at the time, one being Redline.

    Re: Rosa Mirabello?

    It's hard to accurately tell the color under fluorescent lighting, but it doesn't appear to be bronzo Ascot met.; it appears to be either bronzo Windsor met. or rosa Mirabella met.
