If you use the in-series arrangement for the electric pump, you will actually pump through the mechanical pump, not an ideal situation, Andrea

Just realised no body has answered the first question.

I have given my favourite Fulvia an internal makeover, what do you think?

Looks lovely !!!

I am looking for an original set of the bars that bolt to the monocoque to support the rear bumper. My car has the aluminium bumper. I could use even an imperfect pair, or even just one.

I would be interested, as well. I did try to have some made and found that extruders just were not interested, even when I offered to pay for tooling and agreed to take the huge minimum amount - some 1,000 metres. I also tried another avenue that I thought would be better - a polished aluminium-coloured vinyl. This would not corrode, as the original aluminium piece did, and would be much easier to fit. In the end, I gave up and used the rubber one from Cicognani. My plan is to try painting it, using aluminium- coloured paint. I expect this would eventually wear off or require renewing.

Thanks Peter, sounds logical, I will give that a go next time.

V windscreens work well - the wind and rain get deflected over your head and round the side, unlike the typical British flat screen which sends a wet draught onto the back of your neck!  The French knew all about it and here is my Salmson - no hood, no wipers but drivable under most conditions with Rainex on the glass to disperse the wet. If it gets really bad there is a sweet spot for a couple of inches above the screen through which I can see without getting a faceful. This is an original 1925 screen, but I have made another to the same pattern which was an interesting exercise.

I rebuilt one on my Ardea. It was very worn (completely shot) and needed building up with weld, re-machining, and re-bushing.
I did not document the process unfortunately.
The main body unscrews but it is very tight and needs to be tightened to the same position on re-assembly for the valve holes to be in the correct position to work.
The central rubber (?) operated adjustment mechanism was destroyed so I remade with a spool and "O" rings
The construction is generally a bit like a semi rotary pump but with porting to allow fluid from one chamber to the other.
I filled it with oil and it worked.
It seems there are different types, the one here would not have worked with the type of silicone that solidifies when warmed up.

Mine is fitted in series, no T-piece required, you could relocate that existing pump to the rear as priming/ backup to leave the engine less cluttered.
