    Re: Colors/Colours

    These cars were built in SA from CKD (completely knocked down kits) - essentially they were assembled but with some local components - things like tyres, radiators, upholstery were common items. I...

    Re: 4th cylinder not running well

    Have you actually checked that there is spark at that cylinder - you can either attach timing light to that cylinder or simply hold the lead just off the engine and have someone else turn the car...

    Re: 67 Flavia Coupe 1.8i - Engine Rebuild

    If you have all your parts lined up, have the right tools and have some experience a day (8 hrs) is more than sufficient and you would not be working hard. They are not overly complex, nor difficult...
  4. Re: Distributor for 1972 Lancia Flavia 2000

    We have a 123 distibutor fitted to our `63 Pininfarina coupe and have been very happy with it, so much so that we acquired one for our s2 Fulvia coupe after verifying the original Marelli was worn....

    Re: 67 Flavia Coupe 1.8i - Engine Rebuild

    Fairly radical to rebuild the engine completely just for a blown head gasket. When you stripped it down did you look to see why the head gasket had blown, or was the engine getting tired anyway. They...

    Re: Fulvia 1,3 HF

    I think that the issue of whether the towers were painted or not is a non issue. They were painted but poorly in that they were merely blown over with black paint with no prep or etch primer. My 2C...

    Re: Fulvia 1,3 HF

    I have two Fulvias, one a 65 2C Berlina (3 owners/36000 k) and a `71 1.3S ser 2 Coupe (1 owner before us) and both have their towers painted black. Both cars are mechanically untouched so I too...

    Re: Electronic Ignition?

    Interesting you say that mannix as our ignition was perfectly set up before the swap and our "butt analysis" did not indicate any performance enhancement other than a greater willingness to rev...

    Re: Fulvia new driver guide

    I actually think that you will have problems if you "baby" it. As others have said the engine needs to be in good (meaning not an oil burner or rattler) condition before you drive it harder but these...

    Re: Flavia photo thread

    Thanks Hubert. I used to own the Flavia some years ago before I had the ability to restore it and it was a partially stripped rolling shell basically so sold it when we moved house but my son bought...

    Re: Advice on 1970 Flavia coupe faults

    Re Kugelfischer parts I would look to Jaymic (in Cromer Norfolk) who are BMW 2002 specialists and who supplied Kugelfischer parts when I had my Tii 2002 BMW. They are still trading.

    Re: Advice on 1970 Flavia coupe faults

    Julian, as a co-owner with my son of a series 1 (1963) Flavia Coupe 1.8, and a series 2 Fulvia 1.3S we can both say we prefer the Flavia although the Fulvia gives the impression of being quicker...

    Re: Repair panel

    Why don`t you get one made? Very easy for any restorer and because it is so easy the cost should not be high.

    Re: Boot floor seal - Fulvia S1 Rallye

    Nick on our `71 Series 2 1.3S Coupe there is a rubber strip but only on the fuel filler side. Our 1965 Giulia Ti (Alfa Romeo) has nothing and just relies on a very close fit between floor and guard.

  22. Re: Flavia 1.5 cutting out. Fuel Filter? Fuel pump is ok.

    Have you checked the needle and seat in the carb/s? (don`t 1.5`s have twin carbs?) And checked the float level? As the Flavia has an electric fuel pump vapourisation is not normally an issue. Check...

  24. Re: Flavia 1.5 cutting out. Fuel Filter? Fuel pump is ok.

    That fuel filter shouldn`t be the problem - we run one exactly the same on our 1.8 Coupe and the filtration does appear clean. Have you changed the needle and seat in the carb float chamber? I have...
