Finally managed to download the photographs from my mobile phone and I thought it best to insert them in the right chronological order. So, you'll have to go back to page 6 if you want to catch up on them.

I've realized that I took none during that last week! I wonder why?!  Huh?

Worth the wait - thank you !

It was an amazing feat to go from zero to the Fulvia 50th in such a short time, did any of you sleep ?

Now I hope you and Jonathon will have a wonderful summer of Lancia bliss.

Given the glacial pace of my projects this thread is both inspirational and depressing.  Mainly inspiration though!

Congratulations to the workers. 

I decided some years ago that trying to restore cars to a deadline took the a lot of the pleasure out of the work, but having see the Lacey family prepare for Fulvia 50, all I can say is that (to borrow the US vernacular) Deadlines Rock.

In Nick Mason's "Into the Red" book (with a brilliant CD) he says how any rebuild takes a year unless the breakage happens in qualifying in which case its done overnight and on the grid the next morning.

The trouble with deadlines is something has got to give, and not all of us are in a position to do so...  I used to get frustrated, really frustrated, at missing deadlines until I clocked that I missed them for good reasons, because there was more important stuff I needed to be doing.

Another angle is that when you've finished one you've only got to find yourself another Wink

Well, we didn't get the Fanalone to the AGM. It was suffering from what appears to be chronic fuel starvation and with no time to investigate Jonathan had no option but to leave it at home. Very disappointing. Sad

Fit an electric pump!

plus, of course, a pressure regulator and a couple of filters.

Thanks for the thought David but we are already on a Facet solid state pump which has an inbuilt filter,
and a Filter King with pressure regulator.

Robin, do you have a filter in the tank around the pickup pipe, you can get to it by removing the sump plug on the tank, it is more of a gauze than a fine filter, may be that is blocked? You need to collect the fuel if you remove the plug.  Wink

When I undid my tank drain plug the Bl**dy filter thing had disintegrated and the two side pieces flipped out to prevent the plug being fully removed with net result petrol sprayout side ways missing the catchment container and covering the garage floor...... You have been warned.

Anyway the filter gauze can be replaced with a nylon cylindrical changeable fuel filter found in good car accessory shops.

Thanks Neil. The tank was drained, thoroughly flushed out, the filter cleaned and the interior coated with tank sealant during the rebuild.

Not sure where Jonathan is at with the investigation but we've ordered a set of overhaul gaskets for the carbs and the Filter King.

The first test might be to pump fuel into a jar at the carb inlet against the clock.

Did the fuel pressure regulator come with a screw in gauge?  I've not seen one in the metal before but stumbled on it somewhere online recently.

Metal filterking is for racers. Dont buy one with plastic bowl as modern fuel softens it and they leak...

Normally if the mech fuel pump is working it will deliver without need of regulation.

Jonathan has stripped and rebuilt the 48 Dellortos using comprehensive overhaul kits, checked the pump filter, overhauled the Filter King fitting new gaskets and spring, fitted a new set of points and she's running better than ever.  Smiley Another case of not knowing which was at fault or maybe it was a mix of all.

He also machine tapered the two faces of the inlet manifold which has lowered the carbs, had the radiator re-cored reducing the height by 20mm and lowered the height of the water manifold and the temperature sender. All of  which has resulted in the bonnet shutting level with the wing tops without fouling the carbs and radiator.  Smiley
