Thanks, chaps!

Another question comes to mind... just out of intellectual curiosity, you understand. Are the Series One and Series Two water pumps and radiators completely different or are they interchangeable?

We will know in a couple of days if the radiator removal and repair is successful: Morgan tricycle problems have become more urgent than the Lancia.

If your servo is the remote type fitted to 815 Flavias then the pushrod is probably shot too as they corrode with out use. Omicron rebuild these but v expensive. If you rebuild best measure the length of the pushrod before dismantling the servo unit ( you have to take it out of the car to do this). Then fit the new seals (assuming the bore of the servo is Ok) and the new pushrod to the same length as the old one. Then you will probably find an issue with the master cylinder. Always the same with rubbery bits on old cars. They need changing every so often.... Other Flavia owners fit a different type of remote servo (Spanish) as used by kit car makers. It physically would not fit in my Flavia Vignale due to the Kuglefisher system taking more room under the bonnet so I had to rebuild mine.

Appia and Vignale now sold.

The 1939 Fiat 1100 Viotti convertible strikes me a very good value at 9,000 so I have hidden my wallet where I can't get at it.

Here is the same car, two years ago, advertised at 32k Euros.

William,
Suspect it will probably sell for a figure north of the 32K Euros Roll Eyes

The servo is slowly filling up, you may notice brake fluid dripping down between the pedals.

I've just been sent the club booking form for this year's event which I'm happy to organise :

6th October 2018

Entry 15 with seniors 10. Under 17's free of charge.

Car passes are free of charge. Period clothing is welcome! ( 20's to 70's )

http://autumnclassic.co.uk/

My rough timeline would be to get numbers / payments by the August meeting ( of the Bristol Group ). Send of the booking in early September, give out the tickets at the September Bristol Group meeting ( posting to any who are not local Smiley )

This year will divide up the bring and share food items Smiley and aim for a picnic with our cars during the lunchbreak.

This will be the third year of attending and it's always been enjoyable with lots of action.

Please drop me a line if you're interested ...

Hello Brian
Thank you for the idea. I thought this might be the case but I was deflected when others said that I could see white smoke as the fluid was drawn into the engine and combusted.  So the fluid is I suppose just sitting there, in the servo.  The car was serviced in 2004 before I bought it and has done less than 2000kms since then and this lack of use has thrown up no end of issues including "dry" electrical connections to various lights, door locks plus some nice gooey engine oil (now flushed out after second oil change after a few hundred kms running on fresh oil) so failed seals on the servo assy. are, I suppose, no surprise.   
Shall investigate.
Thanks to all

Interesting to see the Appia is claimed to have disc front brakes; yet another auctioneer daydream, or a later modification?
And unusual knock-on wire wheels, so it should be easy to see the brakes.

On my Coupe I am loosing brake fluid but with no visible trace either at the wheels or anywhere else.  I have been told to look for white smoke from the exhaust as the fluid can be drawn into the engine through the vacuum system of the servo if the servo is "leaking" and then out through the exhaust. Has anyone thoughts on this problem as at the moment I cannot see the tell tale white smoke.

Thank you
The Fluid might be pooling in the servo itself, once had a Vauxhall with the same situation, the lip of the seal where the piston rod passed through, had a tear and it was filling up inside with fluid.
At least it's worth a look!
