A gallon of petrol, a quick charge up of the battery, connect the choke cable, clean out the filter and bodge the air filter clip...started first go. I knew it ran but after 10 laps of the unit taken carefully as the brake pedal has no travel and only a slight bit of retardation?? master cylinder?? the little beast was ticking over nicely. The electric fan was cutting in but the gauge stayed in the middle and we had no boiling over...
First impressions...it is nice to have a Lancia that starts and runs...bumpy a bit noisy but great fun..I had forgotten how tiny these cars are. However good things must come to an end..at the Clarkey Chicane I missed getting into 3rd from 2nd and being in neutral and going a bit fast jabbed the brakes so of course the dodgy caliper I loosened off last week developed a grip of death on the disc and the fun was over for now.

Many thanks to Frank who made the trek to the North to drop of a set of alloys and some other spares for the Y10. When we were up moving the Appia I thought I could start the Y10 and give it a few laps of the circuit round the workshops...alas all I got was a loud click so stuck the battery on charge and manhandled the little beast out into the corridor and had another go once the Appia had been set on the way to Scarborough...still just a loud click...we rocked the car in gear but still no joy so the starter motor may have to come out.

Bad earth?
Corroded Earth cable at car end, not unknown on Dedra of similar vintage.

update
checked the battery and earth leads seemed fine except the battery lead connection on the starter was loose inside the solenoid casing so I extracted the motor... quite easy 3 bolts and the cables and will test it against a spare one that came with the car.

Hi all
well the spare starter spun up quite well so a possibility...the original is a bit poorly as it draws a lot of current to pull in the solenoid and the motor spins slowly. They both have problems with the threaded studs coming out of the end of the solenoid being loose...I might have to take one apart.

On closer inspection the original starter is in better condition so will give it a try tomorrow

Always one for a laugh when I left the Y10 to sulk on Sunday I was upset to find I was locked in at the Workshop site...rang the boys in blue and they said it did not class as an emergency and they did not keep a list of the keyholder so I should ring a locksmith...rang the site manager straight to answer phone...Hmmm sure someone will come in it was only 13.30....another hour and I was trying to think if I had left any tools in the unit as I had taken most of them to Scarborough so I could saw through the chain to get the padlock off. Matron however advised me to ring the Fire Brigade.  What a result they had me free in less than 5 minutes!

A quick run up with a bit of scaffold and you'd been over in no time.
