Hi Keith,
Glad to know your Fulvia is now running well. The data you reported are fine and minimal adjustment of the idle screws is not unusual especially if the screw seats are worn. If possible, fit 35mm Dell'Orto carbs less prone to wear but quite expensive (make sure they are indeed 35 mm and not of other more common sizes).To ensure longevity to your engine it is advisable, at about 500 miles change oil+filter, check head bolt torque and valve clearances.

Thanks Andrea. The oil change etc is on the schedule. What is the running in period - keeping the RPM below 2500 for the first 1000kms. Thereafter can one drive the car normally?
I'm not sure that the Dell Ortos are in the budget. Can one buy them new. I might have to though depending on the answer to my idling query. The idling varies between 800 and 1250 RPM normally and down to 500 when the radiator fan kicks in. Is this variation normal and expected

My own philosophy (and a very personal one) is that the first 600 miles should not see revs over 2000. Then a gradual increase in revs up to 1300 miles, after which the running in should be completed. The Lancia factory indicated 2000 km as a minimum for running in. I think that having spent a lot of time,money and energy for a full restoration it would be foolish to blow all of this away.  Cared-for Fulvia engines will readily do 300,000 miles before overhauling. The trick is frequent oil+filter changes.

Andrea - noted with thanks and appreciation.

The first oil change is at 1000km (600miles) the service schedule suggests every 3500kms after that. Are you suggesting that the oil changes should be more regular
I'm surprised that the engine could do 300000 (480000km). It is a lot for a small engine. My Land Cruiser is just below 480000 and still going just as well as always Wink

Oil  changes should be done annually regardless of mileage or every 3.5 K at most (whichever comes first).The Lancia-designed engines (preFIAT) are very, very strong and everlasting when carefully maintained. Best regards.

Thanks Andrea, and everyone else, for all the advise and answers to queries I have had during the course of the rebuild - I'm not quite sure I could have done it without all of you. Thanks again

I am running Castrol Running-in oil for the first 1000km. Should I use running-in oil for the second 1000km as well or is normal oil fine

Standard 15-40 oil is OK
