Just to add the original Cavis plastic (blue) pipe is resistant although it loses it flexibility over time (it did anyway with ordinary fuel). But dont use similar as those are not resistant .

Stanley, Tim, thank you.  I guess that as the car has not been started for 17 years it wonít have had any ethanol fuel in its system.  I will start by drawing the tank, removing and flushing and the re-fit.  Whilst it is off itís probably worth seeing how easy it is to replace the fuel lines.  Does anyone area schematic showing the layout of the fuel lines, or has anyone replaced these lines (assume feed and return?)?

Thank you again

Ian

You should acquire a parts catalogue (a cd  can be had from http://www.viva-lancia.com/specials/cd/fulvia-cd.php or elsewhere but be careful of choosing the correct cd(s) for your car) as these give all the schematics and more...

Ok your responses have helped hugely so far, thank you all.  One question/problem as yet unresolved relates to the rear bumper and the fact that one of the mounting brackets has rusted away and the other isnít too good.
It seeems this may be fairly common so I wondered if anyone knew of a fix, new brackets etc?

Thank you

I had the same problem, on the rear nearside brackets, so I drew up a profile in Illustrator and sent the files off to be lasercut. Had 4 off made, in stainless steel and then took them to a local welder who welded all 4 on (I ground off the offside ones). The only problem then was a bit of blueing and the inevitable Ďused lookí,so... I had them polished (which was expensive!).

Feel free to use them. Any laser cutting place can do them, The pdfs are for reference, the .ai & .dwg files would be what the lasercut people need to load into their computer; so Iíd supply it all.

[EDIT: Iíve not been able to upload the crucial .ai & .dwg files, so if you could PM me Iíll send you them] {EDITED AGAIN: Sent them via email}

Thanks for this Stephen.  Was there a particular reason for designing them in a different shape to the originals, was it due to the thickness of the stainless?

No. As I remember that was the shape that was already there. Mineís a Series 3.

What I normally do is a mock-up; print out a paper copy, stick it to some fairly hefty cardboard, and trial fit it.

One other thing to budget for, is a replacement rubbing strip. Those M6 bolts are usually corroded solid and heating them only loosens the other end of the bolt moulded into the plastic type rubber.

Hi IanC

I've just fitted a 123 electronic distributor to my berlina and it was straightforward and the results are good - smoother tickover and acceleration. I got it from Huib here http://www.viva-lancia.com/

Re the brake reservoir yes there's a rubber seal e.g. https://www.google.com/search?q=fulvia+master+cylinder+rubber+seal&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=2KDlDE2aasEb9M%253A%252CEPuYzmVRZI-I6M%252C_&usg=AI4_-kQO-VaKlKvS7QR17zUwcUQEUUw7Ag&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiRlLX2urTfAhUISxUIHcQZDEkQ9QEwA3oECAUQCA#imgrc=2KDlDE2aasEb9M:   

I've bought one from Omicron - they will know what's what

Cheers

Thanks David, thatís useful to know as this was the one I was considering.  I assume buying the 123 from Holland was more cost effective than UK or is there no UK supplier?  Was there anything else you were advised to buy with it, plug leads etc?
Thank you also for the advice on the seal.

No, it was in Buckingham in a garage in the centre which apparently was a Lancia dealer.  I understand they took the car in part ex against a new Dedra in 1989 and kept it.  It was parked in the showroom in 2001 and didnít move until I bought it this year.

There's a Fulvia site here in France - www.pieces-fulvia.com which a few people here have used including myself. They recommend uprated leads and coil with the 123 distributor.  Take a look, it's all in English. Well, Google English.
