    Wanted: Re: Lancia Beta Keys

    The doors take that long shaft key with the little divots in the sides. The ones I've had looked like #449 or usually #251 on that website. I've seen matched locksets listed occasionally. On ebay or...

    Re: Scorpion #621 revival

    All a lot of pretty typical stuff there. One note is, be extremely careful trying to replace the rearview mirror. Either in the removing or using wrong glue or method to reattach, often has resulted...
  3. Re: Ignition swith/barrel and lock servicable?

    Also check for burnt wires. Yep, sounds like your ignition switch is getting a little hinky. This should give you a place to start:

  4. Re: Whaoooo....What caused this ugly spark plug?!

    Hard to say for certain. I would start by doing a tune up. I have noticed that platinum and similar type plugs work better in later engines with FI but not as well in my earlier cars with carbs. I...

    For Sale: Re: 1978 Lancia HPE Project

    Ooh, that looks pretty cool. Late style hood and grill from another car? Is the car in Tennessee then? Are the strut tower tops ok then? Interior serviceable? Power windows, ac or power steering?...
  6. Wanted: Re: HPE Series 3 Tailgate Glass Window Rubber Seal

    Re: Regulator/check valve at carb leaking

    Its a check valve, so it only allows flow one way. If the car ran, I doubt you had it the wrong way around. If its leaking, you'll need to replace it. If nothing else, with a piece of pipe to join...

    Re: Fuel line size 78 Beta Sedan

    I should think you should be able to pick all that up at your local parts store rather than having to mail order.
    The inlet is the bigger (diameter) one. Probably furthest inboard. Be ready because...

    Re: Engine Clanking Sound

    Could be a lot of things. Loose pulley, cat. going bad, bad motor mount, etc, etc. Do you have a mechanic's stethoscope to listen around different places while it idles?
    Alternately you can use a...

    Re: Fuel line size 78 Beta Sedan

    Yw Jim, glad I could help. The return line would be the smaller one (if one of them is smaller). Just use the 5/16 hose, its readily available.
    As far as the pump, if it ain't broke...

    Re: Fuel line size 78 Beta Sedan

    It doesn't really matter. Usually just use the fancy braided stuff where people are gonna see it, maybe for shows, etc.
    You can just use 5/16 rubber fuel line for carb cars. Doesn't have to be that...

    Re: Electronic ignition

    Congrats. Glad it worked out and thanks for sharing the tips with all.
    I didn't see this earlier, but as an aside for those trying to do this with stock parts, there is another way too. Rather than...

    Re: Engine dies. Boo.

    Check the battery negative cable is good first. Actually that the battery and its connections are clean and without defect. Then fuses. I can't recall which but I think there is one that can cause...

  15. For Sale: Re: Lancia Beta and Scorpion/Montecarlo body stuff for sale

    Do you happen to have a good front trunk lid for Scorpion?

    I have a good Zagato hood (engine cover) to trade if that helps any.

    Craig's List: Re: Restored Beta Coupe, nicely done

    I found them in Brian Long's book, "Lancia Beta". They can also be found in the factory shop manual. I believe in the Haynes manual, and depending on which version you have, may even be in the...

    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.

    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.
    You usually have to relocate the alternator.
    That huge bracket can interfere, often requires removal...
