    Fulvia EFI!

    Starting this thread because it seems like there are at least a few people here that would be interested in this topic. I've started ordering some parts to play with and have started modeling some...

    Re: Flywheel markings 1966 1,2l coupe

    Sounds like my mark is probably under the paint and therefore not visible. Didn't realize they could be so faint; I had been looking for something pronounced/obvious.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Big thank you to Mr. Fiat in Atlanta. I bought a floor from them and asked them to get it out quickly if they could because I wanted to install it this weekend. They got it in the mail the next day...

    Re: Flywheel markings 1966 1,2l coupe

    The flywheel on my 1.2 engine doesn't have any markings. The only way I can tell TDC from the flywheel is that the teeth for TDC and static advance have been painted white.

    If you haven't already...

    Re: Workshop Manual

    Seems they are plentiful on ebay but most are coming out of the UK so you'd probably be waiting on it to arrive for a week or two. Not sure if anyone sells them here in the US

    Re: Carb Upgrade - S3 Fulvia

    This conversation is starting to give me flashbacks to fluid mechanics class sophomore year lol... You only need to know a couple more variables to start using Bernoulli's equation.

    Re: Carb Upgrade - S3 Fulvia

    You can take care of the spindle issue with some bearings like the ones in the below ebay link. Even if you need a machine shop to perform the modification of the carb housings for you, I can't...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I switched to that electronic regulator (sold on many VW parts websites) back when I had the car together and was trying to figure out the charging issue. It definitely helped! Although I did take...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    That's quite the fleet! I can't imagine keeping track of that many cars and keeping them all maintained. I also love that you say "my wife and I". I don't believe I'll ever get my fiancé to help me...

    Re: Engine dilemma

    Those combination of numbers should definitely be the 1231cc engine. The 1216 would have the 818 100 head, but not the 302 block.

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    It's been a while since I've driven the car, but I just remember the headlight brightness changed with RPM of the engine. I'm sure the problem was mostly not the dynamo since it was charging the...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    Yes and thanks for bringing that up. I've read some horror stories about catching cars on fire due to not having them, I just keep leaving it at home when I go to work on the car. I definitely don't...

    My Tig machine doubles as a stick welder and came with the electrode holder, but I've never even struck an arc with a stick electrode before. I'll have to practice on some scrap or something, because...

    Re: Taddraughn's Fulvia Coupe: Progress Thread

    I hope so! I've been at the metalwork for ~4 full months now and trying to be as thorough as I can. I want to eradicate any rust I can find now so that I won't have to do this again down the line.

    I suppose there is also a fourth type that exists but is much less common.
