This is the place to post technical information and tips such as reliable suppliers.  No chat please, keep that for other threads as it will clutter this one up and render it of much less utility.  There are stacks of stuff already on the Fulvia forum but I have no idea of how to transfer it here.  Check out the threads on Lambda and Aprilia fora for an example of how it should work (for the most part!)

Brakes binding.
Series II brakes have a tendency to bind on because the master cylinder piston may not be able to retract fully..  Standard advice is to dive into the footwell and shorten the brake actuating rod.  If this does not work then you need to remove the master cylinder and shorten (by screwing in) the rod pictured.  This happened to me after the brake booster had been rebuilt.
According to Omicron the domed head of the rod should be level with the front surface of the servo.

Can also be due to the pads coming off their backing plates.

Lancia Blue 1961 to end of Lancia true is now Lechler 121L (not 121 any more, this is now yellow).  Suitable for Fulvii but not listed, I think, as an original colour for them.

I'm interested in the possibility of fitting Fulvia 1.6 pistons in my Lambda, which has a bore of 83.00 mm. Does anyone have a drawing of such a piston, or even a piston they could measure. Obviously I'm interested in the gudgeon pin size and position, weight with pin and rings and shape of the crown. Also, does anyone have a spare set?
Regards, John

Hi John,

Not sure if S1 and S2 pistons are the same. I've got a set from our S1 Fanalone which may be of use if only for measuring. I could bring them to the Phoenix on Thursday if you're going to be there.

Thanks Robin. That would be great. I'll bring a measuring stick!

John, In case you didn't know, the engine in John Turner's Tourer (ZI 59) had Fulvia 1600 pistons. The standard bore for 1600 Fulvia engines is 82 mm. Maybe John had fitted over-sized pistons - probably not easy to get now.

Thanks Colin. My engine will hone out to 83 mm, which is better than having to have it rebored, so Fulvia pistons might well suit it.
