Post by: ColinMarr on 27 January, 2018, 08:28:22 PM
On eBay now and not getting much interest is an original Fulvia workshop manual see:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183034863383?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

Might it be of interest to someone on this forum?

It's not very big as I have a copy, for series 2  with updated information. But worth having.

Surprised it wasn't for sale here as it's free, and at least its a targeted audience!

Brian, if I knew the going price for items like this, I would first have offered it on the forum for whatever that is, less say 20% to fellow members. I paid 30 for my copy about 20 years ago, but since then re-printed photocopies have become more available and I dont know what folk will pay now for originality.

I have a similar dilemma with some other parts. For example, I have a perfectly reusable S2 brake master-cylinder body. It was stripped ready for a rebuild 20 years, which never took place and it has been stored properly ever since. It is ready for use and doesn't require re-sleeving. Any ideas what I should offer this for?

A complete new assembly without reservoir is available for c 340 so a good body should be c100 would be my guess

I just paid around that for a new master cylinder. I would happily have paid 100, and probably more, for a good secondhand one.

Hi Folks.  Am desperately needing a good workshop manual for JLT810N - Fulvia Coupe S3.  Car was supplied with an inch thick 'Repair Shop Manual' originally from 'Mercian Manuals'.   It is, unfortunately, completely useless.  Any thoughts much appreciated.  Thanks.  Simon

Hi David - yes I should maybe do just that.  I'm worried though that I might end up with the same thing as I have already, ie I'm not sure whats available.
Regards

Hi, are you looking for a Haynes type manual with photos , step by step ? I don't think one exists -I think that the only thing available is the original factory workshop manual and supplement. I find them a bit dry, but most of what you need is in there. The handbook also has good wiring diagrams. All are available as good reprints or .pdf on eBay etc

If you need practical advice, then there is a wealth of knowledge here and everyone is happy to help

Good luck !

The Consise Repair Shop Manual is in effect a S2,S3 addendum to the 1inch thick manual you have. It is about 1/4" thick. You really need both to understand everything Fulvia, but you need to read the fat one manytimes to work out if the mostly S1 and Berlina stuff is still relevant to your coupe.....

Time to get your hands dirty!

Folks, don't forget your very own Library. It has spare original copies of some documents, photocopies of others and electronic copies of the more popular ones too, all, probably at lower prices than eBay.  Why not try me first.  I may not be on the Forum much but you have my PM in VL which I see every day.

Hi there.  And thanks to all.  I did like the 'time to get your hands dirty' bit cos it's spot on.  In the past I would have thought nothing of fixing anything on OMY80K however it now all seems very daunting.
I have acquired an original Concise Repair Shop Manual - thanks to this Forum.  And therefore have no excuse - I need to get this car roadworthy.  I also noted the Lancia Library - will look it out thanks
