    Re: Source for Interior Door Parts

    I sort of doubt you'll find someone selling these new. You might try Mike Kristick in PA to see if he has them on a parts car in good condition. Otherwise you might just have to make some from rubber...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I actually am using a newly made subframe from rosso corsa (marathon frame on their website). My original was very rusty and I opted to go with this new one. I may eventually decide to fix the...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Thanks Thor! This final push to finish everything is really taking up a lot of my time. Last week and likely this week as well, I'll be working almost every day after work to finish up painting the...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Thanks Ed! I think with this engine I'll leave the valve cover as is. When I get around to rebuilding the 302 engine I have on the shelf I think I'll go with the crackle black treatment. I actually...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    So yesterday due to the boots not fitting well and me making a new spring tool, I was pretty far behind schedule. I woke up at 5AM so that I could try to get a lot done today (I am NOT a morning...

    I spent longer than I wanted to making a spring lifting tool, but here's my solution for anyone that's interesting. I basically just copied the picture of the lancia tool. I might add a little pipe...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I appreciate the input guys. I was getting quite frustrated earlier trying to get them on. In the end I very carefully cut them at the hole with the notch so that no sharp edges would cut the boot....

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I managed to get them on with a slight "modification"... But if the retainer is not there, the boot will have nothing holding it in place!

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Thanks Marnix. That's what I'm trying to do but it is very fiddly. The metal ring is such a tight fit it seems impossible to press it over into the other groove after slipping it on the boot. This...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    There is a groove in the cap but I can't seem to get the boot and metal piece to go on at the same time. I can slip on the boot first, but then I cannot get the retainer over the top to hold it in...

    Can someone please explain to me how the dust boots and the little metal retainers go onto the caps that hold the ball joints in place. I cannot for the life of me figure out how you're supposed to...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    That is the one that I got. Quite easy to come by here on this side of the pond since it is "standard" for us.

    I have some seal drivers so hopefully using those I can drive it in without too much...

    I will report back with the printed numbers on the seal. It's definitely weird because the dimensions are listed in millimeters on the seal but they are decimals that I can't recall. like 28.5 X...

    Quick little update before the weekend:

    I was really dreading having to take the steering box drop arm off after my long ordeal trying to fix the idler box shaft. This time I had no issues...

    Re: Fulvia 3 carb question

    This is what I wasn't sure of.. I thought they still made the non-S 302 type engine later than just S1 cars but wasn't sure if any S2 coupes had it.

    Re: Fulvia 3 carb question

    What engine type do you have? The 29mm chokes are meant for the 1.3 engine that has smaller intake valves and slightly lower compression. I'm honestly not sure if they were still selling that engine...

    I took the drivers side off because the original paint had a crack that extended up through the area where the trim piece was. It was held on with some horrible rubberized adhesive and I dared not...

    I'll see if I can find some of the single grade 90 oil. Maybe I can use that lucas stuff people have mentioned here?

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Thank you for the details about the steering box. I retained all the needles when they fell out (good thing it sounds like) since they are hard to source. I will give everything a good clean and see...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Should have left it closed but curiosity got the better of me. I guess the bottom seal must be leaking for there not to be any oil at all present.

    Car show is October 12th!

    Made some good progress this weekend. Feeling good about my chances of finishing in time for the car show.

    Thank you both for the info! Exactly what I was wondering. I didn't want to hammer on it only to realize that's not how it's supposed to come apart.

    Any takers? I'll probably have a go at taking them apart this weekend if I have time. Would like to paint them with the rest of the parts Saturday
