    Re: Steering rack source

    Darn. If its leaking just sitting there, it most likely should be addressed sooooon.
    It can leak on the exhaust when running and start a fire.
    This has undone more than one Beta.
    You can always...

    Re: Steering rack source

    Your car looks great Jimmy! I like the look of the coupe/zag mags with the silver. Sets it off nicely.
    I did the same.
    If you're on the east coast, I would check with Raul Dipsolis. He's in NJ or...

    Re: Scorpion #621 revival

    Where the brake and clutch fluid reservoirs are. Look near them in that space, in the low spot, there should be a hole. You can poke it with a pipe cleaner or a straightened out metal coat hanger....

    Wanted: Re: 1978 Beta Sedan bright work fasteners.

    If your just looking for the clips and such, you might try an old bodyshop in the area that might still have some of that early style stuff.

    If you're looking for the trim itself, it may help to...

    Re: Steering rack source

    I have my neighbor do this for me. I pull the rack and give him the BetaBoyz kit and he returns it in functional condition. Don't forget to get the rubber boots since you might as well replace at the...

    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...
  8. 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:

  9. 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?...

    Are you sure its set in rubber and not bonded like the front windshield?

    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...

    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...

  20. 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...

    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...
