I found some sound tailgate hinge covers in another spares cache, my last set so I shall have to look after them. I wasn't satisfied with my work on the front wing so at Brian's suggestion I went back to the start and used a high build primer on them. Things are progressing rather better now. I have also started cleaning up a spare door, to see if it better than the existing driver's door, using a new cleaning product I came across. Its' proving quite effective.

I have got a coat of paint that I can live with on the spare front wing now but will put off fitting it till after getting an MOT. Unfortunately having got front seat belts that work and re-assembled everything the ignition has decided not to provide a spark. How we love our Lancias. There seems to be power everywhere there should be in the low tension circuits so I will have to hunt out a spare ignition module and try that.


The tailgate hinge covers are painted and fitted and after cutting and polishing the panel they fit into the colour match isn't too bad.

What was the solution for the seatbelts?

David, I bought new ones on-line. They were universal fit from a campervan conversion supplier. Slight modification to the mounting was needed because they assumed a locating pin hole where the Y10 needs a short slot. Ten minutes with a file sorted that out.

My ignition problem seems to just have been a bad earth to the body of the distributor under the ignition module. On removing the old module I decided the contact point could use some cleaning up. Starting was pretty much instant with the new module but I thought I'd just double check the old one before throwing it away. Surprise, surprise, it worked fine so I have left it in situ and put the new one back in store with my NOS distributor.

Of course Lancias being Lancias the screen washer decided not to work. Again taking everything apart and cleaning the contacts proved to be the solution. However getting the washer bottle out is a real pain because the wires are so short. Even unbolting the washer bottle you can't really move it far enough to get a hand underneath to disconnect the wiring. I spliced an extra six inches into the three cables whilst I had it out so things will be much easier in the future.

Loving your never say die attitude to Lancia living, at least you'll soon have sorted through everything!

Seriously tempted to try and find a Y10 as a daily driver, if there's enough left.

I hate the way modern cars are going with auto lights/wipers/handbrake etc.....like we don't know when it's dark  Huh?

My current '05 Alfa GT daily is just about as new as I'm gonna go.

Need Lancia more back in my life though  Wink

Not sure how 'auto' modern cars wipe but I love the auto setting on my Lybra. Wipes like mad in heavy rain then gradually wipes at various intermittent rates. Best of all is when the rain stops and I forget to switch them off. A big truck comes towards me in a big cloud of spray and ......wipe. Luxury. I never buy new cars so am always 20 years behind in technology.

Well I got an MOT but it is alarming how dreadful the brakes can be and still get through the test. I have no intention of risking my life on the road with them that bad so the wheels are off again and the Y10 is up on axle stands for sorting out. Of course there's always one nut that won't come undone. No amount of penetrating oil, hammer tapping, heating or force would shift it so I resorted to the angle grinder on the basis that I would get more grip on the remains once the drum was off. I was surprised that with the drum off it unscrewed perfectly easily so it must have been rusted solid into the drum not the hub. The front callipers have been exercised to free them up but the retainers for the rear shoes are so grotty that I have ordered a new brake shoe fitting kit. At this rate I won't have to pay for road tax till November.
