    Wanted: Re: Rear suspenion link for Zagato

    I gather rear links for an Alfa Romeo 164 are identical to the stamped-sheetmetal nonadjustable type on late Betas, tho' I've seen some late Betas that had their rearmost pair retrofitted to the...

    Re: '82 Zagato Rear Rotors??

    Overall axial depth, from the inner disc face to outer edge of the hub boss. It just occurred to me the depth of that hub boss could differ, as the fronts are mounted with a spacer plate, whereas the...

    Re: Weber DAT linkage

    More likely you could just get a custom spacer made, but as you say, that may make it too tall, not to mention changing intake geometry and performance characteristics. I infer you swapped linkage...

    Re: New Lancisti SF Bay area

    That Mobilube HD Plus 80W-90 appears to be GL-5 rated, which may pose a problem. I can't speak to Fulvias per se, but Betas need a GL-1 gear oil, as the GL-5 is meant for modern hypoid gears and too...

    Re: Weber DAT linkage

    Is it hitting the carb body, or would a spacer between the carb base and manifold help with clearance? I think there should normally be a ~5mm phenolic insulator plate between them, available from...

    Front rotors Brembo part no. 08.2597.10
    Rear rotors Brembo part no. 08.2599.10

    Thought I'd found a source in the UK that listed these and placed an order, but turned out they and Brembo were both...

    Re: Easiest way to adjust timing belt?

    Belt is prolly too tight for that to work; I can barely slip mine on even when the tensioner is fully slack. Locking the cam wheels firmly enough to unbolt them also seems at least as much a...

    Re: Can I remove the power steering on my beta

    Egad, that shouldn't happen just by driving without the pump engaged; getting the pump operating won't fix the leak but may make it far more obvious where the leak is! If you're lucky, it'll be one...
  9. Re: VIN Decoder - '79 Lancia Beta VIN 828BC1610578

    Really the only significant differences for North American '79 Betas would have been body style (sedan, coupe, HPE or Zagato) and transmission (manual or auto). All had the same engine, and equipment...

    Re: Can I remove the power steering on my beta

    Just to confirm: the ZF PS rack will steer fine without the pump in action, just heavy for parking. When my PS belt broke while driving, I barely noticed any difference in feel and wasn't even sure...

    Hm, what about just adding a black rubber rub strip across the middle, at least wide enough to cover the slot holes? Does anywhere even sell aftermarket rub strips anymore?

  19. Re: 1981 Lancia Zagato "Special / Limited Edition"

    Re: Interesting tail light substitute

    It's not just the amber lenses; the entire taillight assembly is different, and pretty sure they're not from an X1/9. I'm getting a vague notion they may have come from some '80s UK/Euro Ford that I...

    Re: 1981 Beta Coupe Project

    Huh, maybe a PO of my LBZ removed that, or maybe it was a pre-'79 thing? Reckon they must have added that to meet US headlight-height regs with the extra weight of A/C and PS pumps in front.

    Re: What are folks running for tires?

    Fitting a 195/60R14 depends on the model of tire, if it runs small for its rated size and/or has little sidewall flex. A wider rim would need to put all the extra width on the outboard side, which in...
