Glad you were enjoying a beer and listening to some fine DAB radio while in your man shed!

If anyone has a spare 48 litri Flavia fuel cap I would be very grateful to hear.

...and if anyone knows how to re-rubber a cap?   For now I don't need it.  

Plan is to cut out every last bit I can reach, REALLY clean the surface, and use "some goop" to stick in a ring "of something".

The original rubber had become like glue.  It took a lot of force to get the cap to spin and it wasn't easy even then to remove it.

Iteresting as I have re rubbered a cap on my Ossa motorcycle. I have not found a rubber disk to date that does not expand over time due to the petrol fumes affecting it. I am currently using a hand cut ring of viton rubber 3mm thick. Secured in place by a few drops of super glue.

That's the rubber stuff !

For the tank, I cleaned it best I could then put a good handful of sharp stones in there and shook it before pressure washing and derusting/degreasing and rinsing again  - works pretty well.

Haven't you got a pot of special Fiam oil on the shelf ....

David, an important question, the answer to which may help many Lancia owners irrespective of the model in hand at any particular time. What ale do you recommend to facilitate stripping and cleaning parts? Also, please confirm that it should not be applied directly to automotive parts, but taken internally, as a lubricant, by each and every person working on said Lancia.

                                           Andy

PS is there an easy way to prevent the ale from over-lubricating the mouth and/or sense of balance?

That is local brew - "London Pale Ale" from Meantime Brewery.  I get it from Magestic.

Another local to support - in this case for special occasions.

In terms of a car tip - taking the Strada tank out I syphoned with a bit of the cleaned up Flavia hose.  Nothing shifted the petrol taste until I tried a can of coke.  It was petrol burps all afternoon but the taste was gone.

Old petrol is horrid ! I cleaned the Appia tank outside the garage and Mathilda refused to walk past it , choosing to walk the extra yards to the front door to avoid it, so drinking the stuff .......

A picture quiz.  The radio I spotted from a mile away (thank you again Brian...) but what car is it in? 

The pair of speakers is my interest.

Ok - I'm impressed. 

Perhaps this is harder?  It made me wonder just how sure they were about their brake system to have four lights at the top of the panel.  Perhaps those running the standard Flavia servo should have a similar accessory?

It was a Bentley "something".  A couple of photos of the DB4 with "my" radio as well.

Of course I was also wondering quite what the blue was on that DBS.
