I begin to feel a totally inadequate owner of an Aprilia!
The driver's door has been a little unreliable in its action lately - it would stick open when opened occasionally but did click closed with a tap. Last weekend after the Ashby Show (well done Neal Shepherd for organising the classic cars) I could only open the door from the inside as the handle stayed out in the pulled position.
On taking the door trim and window out I see that the system is very similar to that on the Augusta which is very easy to work on as all bits are visible. On the Aprilia they most definitely are not and it looks as if the window channel needs to come out and even then all is not clear. The bit with the coiled spring (the handle return) seems to be the problem as feels loose and possibly disconnected.
Do I need to take the bit that the vertical rods connect with to actuate the top and bottom clips? If so that is a awkward job as all the screws seem corroded in place and if not, how do I do it!!?
I keep trying to use the car but it obviously prefers languishing in comfort.
Good news however on the Augusta front as I am just off to get the new rebored block and new pistons and shell-bearing bronzes so will be busy into August at least with both cars.

Can anyone help with this query please?

Hello , I act as curator of the home fleet of lambda owner/member Douglas Blain.

He also owns a  unique trials special known as the Crocus built in 1950. It comprises an HRG chassis , Ex HRG Singer 1500cc engine ,Pre select g/box,Triumph Dolomite rear end, and a 1938 Aprilia steering/suspension system. We seek basic toe in /out settings for a standard Aprilia to start as a basis to  sort this renovation’s  wayward steering habits. Can any one assist please ? A third Lancia in the fleet , a Thema 832 What a motor car!

Regards Keith Styles

whilst en route today A11/A14 Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border saw an Appia loaded on a car transporter, presumably just purchased not broken down, but who knows ? Ironically I was on my way to look at a Lancia for sale in North Norfolk !

You know the old adage Brian, if you have to ask the price then you can't afford it!
Well certainly applies Frank, they must know what they want for the items
I also hate car adverts which say POA.

I suppose it's justified in some cases but I can't think why.

Came across this the other day.
Site has various Fulvia spares water pump and petrol cap plus others of interest. Hope this helps those searching for those long lost items.
Hope the link works:
Mind you most of you, no doubt, know this site, but just in case.

Thanks Colin,
I can see a few parts I wouldn't mind, but I hate the practice here that no prices are shown, a d you have to ask, always smells of a rip off to me.
8227  Cool
