The originals on my B12, plus a much better spare  set, plus another single spare all have black paint in the recess of the letters.

When we bought our B20 back in 1977 it had been used as a daily hack until about 1967 and then stored. So I assume that the hub caps were as original as the rest of the car. The script on the hub caps was black.

I feel I should know the answer to this but on both aluminium (early cars) and chrome plated (later cars) Aurelia hubcaps, the script which stands proud in the centre of the hubcap is often painted in the 'lower' areas if you understand me..
What colour was used back in the day? Was it body colour or Lancia blue or unpainted? I have seen all variants on restored cars but what was originally offered by the factory?

Is the sedan gearbox different to the coupe version?

One way to look at this is assume a base condition that the crank was balanced with an awareness of alum plugs and that the passages are intended filled with oil. Then the SS plugs and crud only impact the balance by their weight (delta) over the base condition. Crud probably not that critical, not sure about the plugs.

A good sized workshop is a wonderful place to be in! Do you have pit boards?

I've got shed envy from those pics.



I hear you David.

I used to have to do cars on my gravel driveway with a car port for cover, or a wind tunnel as it often was!

I started renting a small unit (about the size of a double garage) up at a local place which is perfect for doing one car at a time, more than ample for the hobbyist I am.
A bigger unit (where the Y10 is now) became available last year which I share with a friend (the Peugeot owner) where we can store or work on cars in the dry and relative warm. Nice bright electrics inc 3 phase should we require it, even an inside loo washroom! Rent isn't too bad either, only downside is it being a 30 to 40 minute drive away from home depending on traffic.

We also had the fortune for it to have an inspection pit previously installed by the HGV repair people who rented it, a proper steel sided one with lights and steps. Not quite as deep as a normal car one though as they did trailer repairs, they'd not be able to reach otherwise! But is very handy. I had to make some removable covers for it though as was left open!

Comes in handy though, more so in a lot of ways than a ramp which would be permanently taking up space.

Y10 only just wide enough for it though! My lads' Hillman Imp has to be used very carefully over it!

further to the crank shaft oilway plugs I managed to source some stainless steel ones that might come out in about 40 years time if anyone is doing an engine overhaul bit more robust than the aluminium ones we have
does this not change the dynamic balance of the crankshaft?
Yes, it certainly will. Cleaning out the crud that builds up in crankshafts does, too. Usually for the better, as it was probably balanced before the crud arrived. I have been amazed at how much builds up over time.
