Hi Richard,
I decided not to race this season until AFTER our son Alex's marriage which is July 30th in an effort to reduce risk etc. Not a bad decision  i thinkbecause subsequently his prospective mother in law fell off one of her horses in March and broke 2 bones in her neck resulting in temporary paralysis, 2 weeks of traction anmd then a complex neck brace which was only removed yesterday!!
Therefore I am not at Silverstone this year having had a great time there last year winning a couple of trophies in Pre 63 GT and Masters.
The wheels are specificaly for Aurelia I believe and I have never seen them fitted to Flaminia although maybe that is because noone has tried.
You are welcome to borrow one from me - I am in Sunningdale Berkshire.

Back on the subject of single or tripple carbs; I seem to remember some discussion of this a year or so ago, possibly involving Mr Buckley. Richard Thorne had a sedan available with triple carbs fitted at the time. I looked up the output figures and whereas the tripple carb engine had better BHP the single carb engine was way ahead on torque. Thus the single carb was fitted to the heavy sedan, the tripple carb to lightweight tourers but for a Pininfarina coupe the best choice probably depends on what sort of driving you do.

Richard, do you still have that front subframe? I could be seriously interested as it might get my sedan project moving forwards again. My pockets aren't deep but it would be easier to hide from "she who must be obeyed" than another car!

I had a set of the (heinbrand) wheels some time ago. They did not fit my Aurelia without some modification, as the offset was incorrect. However I did fit them to a Flaminia SL 3C I had (and still do) at the time. They looked quite well, but would need hubcaps to finish them off. I ended up selling the wheels to a man in California, for his Flaminia Zagato. The tyre size was 185/70, which did not really fill the arches that well.

Kevin McBride for a man who lives in a bog you have some exotic car/spares lines going on there ... and broadband too! This heady Flaminia scene was too rich for me and I have reverted to more common fare.

many Thanks Chris,hope the wedding goes well.also hope mother in law makes a full recovery!i am still not sure what the heinbrands look like although have seen some technomags pictured on an alfa forum.having spoken to David Gee at silverstone yesterday one course of action is to buy 165/400s from a french tyre fitting centre where they may be cheaper.best regards richard

hi Frank,a single carb sounds like a sensible option then.i sold the subframe in the last week or so after it being surplus for many months with no interest- these items seem to be in sudden demand.if i find another i will let you know.what state is your sedan in-any pics or details of the project.i love mine and so does my girlfriend although she prefers the zagato i think.best regards richard

hi James,the fulvia gearbox sits on a crossmember which is part of the subframe and is also attached by means of a bracket above the box. a chap local to me in kent had subframe parts surplus when i last visited him-i can find out if you like .also James if you are still in the tyre business i would be grateful for info regarding availability etc of the 165/175/185 400 tyres as mentioned in the other thread.best regards richard

its a flaminia box that i'm going to be mounting so the rear end, above the transaxle is what i need, i will look into the 400mm tyres, unfortunatly because of the monopoly on them ie only michelin and pirelli making them + lack of demand its hard to get good prices on them  Angry

The Flaminia transaxle just bolts to the floor with some big round rubber mounts. You should be able to fabricate something very easily. I don't think it carries much load.

Chugga

I just "dismantled" a Flam. transmision/suspension assembly last night but apart from a substantial aluminium casting on the back end of the box here was little sign of how it might be attached to the body. The whole assembly is in a pic here but you canīt see the casting as the transaxle seems to be flipped upside down in this shot. Anyhow you can see it at the AGM where it will be appearing on a trailer with a whole Flam. Or in the boot. You donīt have a monopoly on insane Lancia collections and deliveries you know!

Similar to the Aurelia. 2 cross beams are bolted to the transaxle. One at the clutch end, the other at the rear. These in turn, are bolted at each end of the cross beam to the floor of the car. The beams are probably missing from your transaxle.

James, attached are two photos of the transaxle from my B20, which Kevin says is similar to your Flaminia  one. This is sitting on a bench awaiting fitment of new oil seals. Hopefully nothing else is required because it will go back  without any further work, apart from a refurbished (or replacement) clutch. Oh, and rebuilt brakes.

The first photo shows the mounting beams whilst the second shows quite clearly the double rubber mounting bushes. The shell is on the rotisserie so I will try to get a photo of the underside in the relevant area to show detail of the chassis mounting points.

Just had another look at the first photo above, excellent of the rear of the unit but not so good at the front, I'll see if I can do better.

Just been to to the workshop and more photos , this time of the underside of the shell. The four transaxle mounting points are identified with a blob of white paint and a close-up of the front and rear are included. the rear  points are on chassis box sections whilst those at the front are on brackets attached to the side of box sections. All very strong but also simple!  I hope I've included enough peripheral area to allow you to identify everything if needed.

I've just realised I've yet to download the latest photos, so they will follow on a separate post. Its just senility, the problem is that I won't be getting over it !!!!!
