    Re: Ultrasonic cleaner size

    Bad practice, it may ruin the device... Almost all tanks I have seen have instructions to fill them up to near the top rim. The reason is exactly that: to avoid the thing overheating

    Re: Going nuts

    For carbs, I very often sort to stainless (screws, springs, etc)… It is a hot and wet environment, and the fuel disolves any oil or grease protection… In addition, metalisation today is a lot less...

    Re: replacing rubber carb mount

    There are different materials in it, so you have to use different solutions depending on the part you are cleaning. I use a kind of industrial degreaser for general cleaning. For many parts, water...

    Re: Rear shock absorbers, Fulvia Coupe

    I used to have Konis. But Huib made me change to real gas shocks. The diffrence is certainly noticable. Car drives a lot better, roadholding is better, and smoother. It is not a wow! moment of...

    Normally not. Make sure surfaces are perfect clean and smooth (that includes the flanges of the carbs).

  13. Re: Girling Superduplex Brakes, Master cylinder connections

    Re: Carburetor support strap

    OK, you are running on WEBERS. That changes everything I guess. The issue about the back-pressure from the air box is something typical for the C.32 and C.35 PHH Solexes. Can't say anything about the...

    Re: Carburetor support strap

    It is a rubber "silent block" (don't know the proper name). Imho, it is only to isolate the carbs from the engine vibrations (just like the rubbers at the manifold do). Carbs don't like vibrations...

    Re: Carburetor support strap

    Very much correct. I didn't go into the issue of using the 1300 carbs with open cones instead of the full airbox, but Tim is quite right: you will lose some power (or may need to experiment with...

    Re: Steady 'high' idle?

    Heu... I am afraid I think of around 10 different reasons for a high idle… I am sorry about it, but diagnosing a carb problem remotely is very hard to do

    Re: Carburetor support strap

    I am assuming it is the "strap" 14 in the fig below (and maybe the associated fixing hardware);

    The part number is Lancia 2223601 (or 82223601).

    Can be ordered at spitline, Felix in SA (and...

    I came to be reminded that it is C.42s you got. It is strange: I kind of hate these, because in my feeling they have been rather hastily designed by Solex, with a kind of mixture of stressing the...

    Tbh, I did know about this problem. I used a different approach to solve this issue, but your solution (valve grinding) seems simpler and better, so thanks for the suggestion.
