    Re: Key question

    That's interesting. My black key only does the ignition. The white one does the doors, glove box, and fuel filler.

    Re: Fulvia restoration

    “By the way, there may be some helpful pictures for you in my build thread; in a few places in the "metal work" section others posted links to restorations and posted their own pictures that were...
  5. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Brian: I don’t know how readily available appropriate electric motors are for your fan, but to declare that your fan “has had it” is rather defeatist, it seems to me. There’s only one moving part...
  6. Re: Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    Which would not be the case for series 2 cars, right?
  7. Re: Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    Yep, no modifications necessary. Just push them in, if I recall. Just look at the numbering on the incandescent bulbs and search for those in LED. I’m away for a couple of weeks so can’t check. ...
  8. Re: Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    I tend to buy known brand LEDs, after disappointing forays into Chinese rip-offs. If I recall, they were Philips. I’d be comfortable with Osram, GE, and any of the other legit manufacturers. With...
  9. Re: Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    Incidentally, I replaced my trouble-light bulbs with LEDs, which made them wonderfully bright.
  10. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    I have to agree with bmarler, Brian. If the motor turns when it is connected directly to the battery, and there are no earthing issues—as there do not appear to be, the problem must lie elsewhere....
  11. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Hi Brian: is the housing made of plastic or steel? It sounds like a grounding issue to me. If you have a two speed fan, it is likely that you have three wires to the fan motor—at least that is the...
  12. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Being obsessive, I couldn’t just not fix the heater fan motor. Thus armed with your collective ideas, yesterday afternoon was spent disentombing the heater. I decided to turn the commutator on my...
  13. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    “I would have expected less volts due to the current draw of the motor. Its not drawing any current”

    Interesting point. Hadn’t thought of that. Thanks for the observation. I'm going to test the...
  14. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Ya know..... that might actually work. I don’t know if I could face the humiliation, though. :ambivalent:
  15. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    I get 12.5 volts on the fan switch on both high and low settings. There’s no lateral movement of the motor axel in its bushings, but there is a bit of fore-and-aft movement. Perhaps 1 mm.

    I think...

    Re: 50th anniversary restoration

    The valve cover is the visual centrepiece of the engine bay, in my estimation. Thus chips on it will cause you endless irritation and visual distraction (at least it does with me). I’ve already put...
  18. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    “if you want to test for a bad spot on the com, re-position the fan before trying to start it instead of flicking it with power applied.”

    of course....... dohhhhhh....... I went for a spin...
  19. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    that sounds like it could be the problem. The switch on the dash is fine. I did remove the brushes (which come on a built-in, spring-loaded holder), but was really careful to replace them as found....
  20. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Didn’t do a thing. Same wiring, switch, everything...... the only thing was to dismantle the electric motor and clean/lubricate it. Works great, as long as I give it a spin to start it up.
  21. A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    So I dismantled the dash on my series 2 1,600 to access the heater HVAC module, which is one big, plastic unit with the heater core and fan motor buried deep inside it. All is now back together and...

    I’m sorry, I don’t. Just put a calliper on the shaft for the inside diameter and bring the pivoting arm with you the Mr. Bearing-Guy for the outside make sure you know the width. It was a common size...
  24. Re: Two quick steering wheel questions.

    Thanks, Ed.
  25. Two quick steering wheel questions.

    I’ve decided to get a Nardi “Classic” steering wheel for my 1,600, largely because the 360 mm Ferraro wheel the car came with makes for stiff steering at slow speeds—and especially For things like...
