    Re: Carbs

    Tim,

    For experimentation, I closed holes with a drip of epoxy. I didn't notice much difference in bottom open or closed, but (as you also found out) holes over the length of the tube make a big...

    Re: Carbs

    Marnix,

    Are you also able to shine a light on the difference in patterns of holes in the mixing tubes?
    There are so many different patterns, all seemingly original: 4 holes at right angles in...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    The 'pro's' work the filler while still soft, so that the cured rough product is almost the required shape and not like your sills. That saves a huge amount of time sanding!

    Also, realize that the...

    Re: Series 2 coupe rear calipers

    They're metric. S1 Dunlops are not.

    Re: Steering wheel -- 1975 Fulvia

    The holy grail of Fulvia steering wheels is a 350mm Sandro Munari signed Ferrero wheel. Smaller diameter Ferrero wheels are more easily available but make steering too heavy. Be prepared for serious...

    Tip: now that you have sill(s) and floor back in, take some time to test-fit the doors.

    Wanted: Re: Gear selector shaft housing

    The locking pin often breaks off. You can weld it back in place and, while you're at it :twisted:, reinforce that area.
  8. Re: Fulvia Series 1 brake pedal return spring.

    It can always be more complicated. Look how they engineered the pedalbox for the S4 rally car and count the number of needle bearings.

    Re: 72 Fulvia steering wheel removal

    Method:
    Get behind the wheel and undo the nut until flush with the rod end. Push the wheel firmly towards you with your knees and apply a healthy blow with a heavy hammer on the nut/rod end using an...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    ...which is why I bought the shell of a 1600 and went all the way with restoration. Just as much work as a 1300 but the end result is worth 3 times as much.

    Re: An interesting break of a Fiat bolt

    This is a common problem on S2 Fulvia/Flavia; a simplification of the overly complex, but very satisfactory, S1 system.

    Breakage is caused by micro movement of the spline connection between shaft...

    Re: S2 Fulvia Heater motor removal

    It looks like someone replaced the heater and fan before as these bolts don't look original to me. Too long.
    That said, it is quite possible to remove the whole heater box from the inside without...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Original harnesses can be reconditioned to a surprising degree with plastic cleaner which softens the hard bits and brings back the color.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Keep this lesson in mind when you handle wheel bearings, which are even more prone to damage the seals because of the split inner ring!

    Re: Crank case/block gasket

    I think the best advise here is bite the bullit and take out the engine.

    You will need to take the head off as there's a bolt tightening block to crank case underneath it. And, while you're at it...

    Mine is a 5 speed. Never took a 4 speed apart so can't tell about it's details. Did quite a few 5 speeds, though.
  19. Re: Questions about originality S2 Fulvia

    The upper picture says it all. It's an S2/3 coupé and the dampening material looks very original to me. Never understood why my own S2 didn't have that.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Just for inspiration...
    Don't forget to remove the spring/ball that locks the gear selector, or it will fall into the box. Also, I seem to remember, one of the ring nuts that holds the assembly has...
  21. Re: Questions about originality S2 Fulvia

    Not quite sure about this one. My old S2 1300 had plain paint, like you said, but I have seen others that had the sound dampening material similar to (?) berlina's and, for instance, Flavia's. If...

    Re: Brake issues

    Probably the master cylinder, but if it leaks oil may find it's way into the servo. You don't loose oil, do you?
    Best to take both out for investigation.

    Re: Fulvia 1,3 HF

    Not willing to scare you off, but may I suggest that, while you're at it anyway, you open up the lower A-pillars to see what's behind? Most likely you will find the connection between sills and...
