    All looks great. The oil cooler doesn't look bad in silver, but they're originally black.

    Thanx

    I wanted to restore my Cromodoras With acrylic Paint as original. Color is RAL 9006 White aluminium, brand Color Matic. I found the webste from an American restorer With a very good explanation what do do and material to use. Be aware that the Alodine prep Liquid is now rebranded as Bonderite by the manufacturer. I bougth a Whole gallon of the stuff, so I have enough for the rest of my stay on mother Earth.

    Ed, I decided the oil cooler looks best in silver. The cooler was apparantly grey/silver on a pic taken in 1975, so I went for it.

    Justin

    Its a restorer/tuner based in Greece. He have made several exhaust for (tuned) Fulvias on this forum.

    Exhaust, the original Lancia exhaust from 1967 put on before first start (they dont last this long today).


    Engine started immidiatly With good oil pressure and fuel pressure.
    The fuel pressure was 1 good psi over wath the DT says. My Reading at manometer was 4 psi.
    Marnix, would one extra gasket help to achieve one psi lower pressure? Chime in if you read this, or other who tried this solution.
    It was not any fuel leaks/spill from the solexes, they hold tight.

    Performed a 15 minutes initial run in procedure. All went well, no oil leaks,
    no peculiar noises or misfires. It sounded very good InFact.

    Post initial run in, I checked everything. Re Thightened headbolts, adjusted valve clearances, checked cylinders and piston heads wiith my endoscope camera and Changed oil and oil fillter.

    The largest milestone in my Project so far.

    Now I can llower my shoulders, take easter holliday and grab a beer.



    Cheers

    I am more used to readings in bar, so I converted. 4psi is 0.275 bar. While a little bit on the high side, it is not really out of specs in the sense that Solex specifies that the needle valve should hold up to 0.35 bar. Solex has been giving a wide variation on the spec foir the operational fuel pressure, going from 0.19 bar to 0.29 bar, depending on the specific version of the carbs. I usually set it (when I have a pressure regulator) to 0.2 bar, but I think anything between 0.2 and 0.3 bar is going to be fine. If fuel pressure is not going up at higher revs, my advice would be to leave it as it is (if this is a new pump, you may find pressure may slightly drop anyway after running in). I am not convinced adding an additional gasket will change much: the fuel pressure is actually regulated inside the pump, and I don't see how that extra gasket is going to change much to the setting of that internal regulator. The other solution would be to fit a fuel pressure regulator, as was done with the majority of S1 Fulvias (a King, or an original FISPA if you can find a good one). I am not sure if we are talking a Fulvia with a fuel return line or not. The Fulvias with a fuel return line were not fitted with a fuel pressure regulator, as the small opening in the connection to the return line acted as a crude regulator. (The very early Fulvias did not have a pressure regulator either, but that was because the early Solex carbs had a different needle valve, without the ball tipped/spring load needle valve; the ball tipped/spring loaded needle valve is good to eleminate vibration effects from the engine, but also makes the needle valve rather sensitive to high fuel pressure). The pressure regulator not only serves to keep the pressure down to the set value, but also to flatten out any pulsation of the fuel pump (at low revs). It is not unwise to add one, even on cars with a fuel return line (on the early Fanalone, they actually had both the fuel return line and the pressure regulator). King sells the regulator without the filter element too, if you are not happy about the glass bowl filter.

    Success, and job well done!

    lets take that pallet for a spin around the block!
    looks great, i'm sure you're very happy with the outcome.
    is your fuel pressure manometer calibrated? it's possible for them to have some error. either way, as marnix says, you are pretty close to the spec, and shouldn't be a problem.
