Mild beefetta:  The wiper blades from the Consortium have pinged off for no obvious reason.  First one (vanished into a hedge), then a week or so later the other (located lying on the road).   I have bought a new pair from eBay.  I do not know if Mark the Mech or I have missed some secret fitting technique peculiar to Appias.

The car is off to Jersey for a month in a week or two.  Jersey roads suit a small classic car.

Hi Gerard
Just noticed your horn ring is bent it should be in the same plane as the wheel.

It sticks in place sometimes.  It usually sits along with the wheel.

Do all Appias have such LOUD HORNS?

Yes, if not loud, the battery is low, Andrea

Nicely done - car looks well in photos and on the video. Another old Lancia in good hands.

Cheers!

Next Wednesday I shall drive the car down the A34 to Portsmouth.  I shall bring a jump starter, a battery charger, tools, oil, and spare wiper blades.  The car will be wandering the lanes of Jersey until just before Christmas, but I do not promise to solve any murders.

BTW, the driver's door is stuck in the locked position at present.  I get in on the other side and slide across.  I assume that if I remove the door card I may be able to jiggle the mechanism.

I had this problem on my Series 1, albeit the passenger's side; turned out to be an over-long trim screw that was jamming the mechanism; you could be equally lucky!

The Appia is currently having a battery charge.  I am about to check its oil and coolant levels.    Tomorrow morning at 0530 I shall head off on a 77 mile route to Portsmouth, to catch a 9am ferry to Jersey.  I have to go through Reading and then down the A33, but hope that Reading will be quiet when I get there.  Brrr - heater not working.  I shall wrap up in a 1960s wool lined knee length leather motorbiking coat, scarf and gloves.

I'm probably telling you something you already know, but do you realise you have to open the valve on the cylinder head for the heater to work?

Edit: I've just looked at your engine-bay photo, and see you have a dashboard-controlled valve; it must just be the earlier cars with the under-bonnet lever!

Appia: not broken down.


MV Commodore Clipper: broken down.  


Oh well, I have a cabin to relax in.

Aujourd'hui, en Jerri -



After a free test at the airport (negative), I have checked into a pleasant apartment, with a full fridge, and have to stay indoors for five days, but thereafter can live life normally, pubs included.  The Appia is going to stay at a farmhouse up the hill above St Helier.
