    Re: Fuel line size 78 Beta Sedan

    For carb'd fuel pumps, I'm sold on the Carter gerotor type, part # P90091. You may need to remove the included filter that comes pre-clamped to the intake end, so you can reconnect with a longer span...

    Re: Beta Engine Vibration Stuts

    "Shot" as in how? Bushings on the ends perished, or are the actual damper plungers seized or move freely without any resistance? If it's just the bushings, you can have poly ones turned at any...

    Re: Beta Bolt Size?

    Also note: the cam cover hold-down nuts should only be SNUG by hand. I screw them down finger-tight, then hold an Allen socket in my palm like a screwdriver to give them one last little twist, and...

    Re: Beta P.W. Retro Help Needed

    I gather the cables, channels, etc. should only be oiled, not greased; apparently grease is just too thick and goopy for the low-effort operation required.

    Re: High IDLE 1977 Beta saloon 2000

    1979 was the first year for the 2000 engine in the US.



    I think he's referring to crank timing marks in particular being absent, which could happen with an early car if the timing belt cover is...

    Re: Gearbox Oil Recommendation

    IIRC, one of the other problems with GL5 oils formulated for modern hypoid gears is they're too slippery for old-fashioned synchro designs to get the friction they need to function properly, which...

    Re: High IDLE 1977 Beta saloon 2000

    According to the Haynes manual, jetting for a 2000 engine 34 DATR should be:

    Primary Idle Jet: 50
    Primary Main Jet: 120
    Primary Main Air: 170
    Primary Main Emulsion: F.30

    My interpretation would be that's just saying it's not required to completely remove the fabric, as the DB top would fit with the fabric left intact, tho' the straps and the rest of the rear...

    Re: Dual Weber Carb Kits?

    The issue isn't the angle, which is indeed the same for all Beta-engined models, though of course a manifold meant for Fiat models won't have the correct angle for any Beta. However IIRC, the Alquati...

  15. Re: 1981 pagato don't know if i should paint or sell

    Agreed on leaving the paint as-is if you're going to sell it anyway; you probably won't get a return on the investment of a decent paint job, and a cheap Maaco/Scheib job may not help it sell anyway...

    Re: Beta cam identification

    With hot carbs, hot cams would make sense to take better advantage of the better breathing. AFAIK, only FI Betas came with cam-end driven dizzys as stock; however, that dizzy mount may have been a...

    Re: Beta cam identification

    No idea if they're aftermarket cams but probably not; they appear to be for a Beta with fuel injection, going by the distributor drive slot on the end of the exhaust cam.

    According to Brian Long's Lancia Beta collector's guide book, there were 2,076 '79-81 Zagatos imported and only 791 '82s, no further breakdowns given by year. I'm not sure the VIN can be decoded to...

    Battery Group 42 is the correct size, but groups 90 and 96R will also fit -- the latter only differ in cleat placement along the bottom edges and usually have a "penthouse" on top for extra charge...

    Re: 1981 Beta Under hood Ignition Help
