Brakes and discs removed. Caliper bolts are difficult to access, so I removed handbrake assemblies and pipe work first. Caliper pistons were very stiff in cylinders. I dont know how I would have disassembled without transaxle removed from the car.

Reference the reverse selector switch ( for reversing light) mentioned earlier in thread, I am pretty sure that this is what it is, but I cannot see it listed in the Parts manual. My car seems to have a lashed up system (see photo) probably because the sensor failed at some point in its history. I have removed the sensor and it has a small probe which appears to have lost it 'spring', so no longer protrudes as necessary. Any body have a clue if the sensor is available or repairable?

That looks really good Charles. Now you can begin to play without getting yourself and, more importantly, components covered in gritty dried up grease.

Good luck with whatever stripping and dismantling is required.

Good progress.

What did you use to clean it?

Thanks guys.

I used the 'green' version of GUNK, which seemed to work ok, with a bit of scrubbing.

The calipers have been sent off to BG Developments for plating (claw) and new cylinders and pistons as shown earlier in thread (anodised aluminium and stainless pistons). They supply Viva-Lancia if you have seen them on their website.

I am hoping they can manufacture new discs for me, but will keep you posted!

Omicron have supplied new gearbox mounts and a reverse light switch.

Happy days!

Charles

If you are struggling for discs, let me know - I have some spares that will skim.

Thanks for the offer Dave.

The old ones are pretty good with plenty of thickness ( 12.5 mm). They are a little pitted in places but will clean up.

If I can get new ones, in theory I will not have to remove gearbox again for a long time, or ever!

Just a quick update.

Omicron kindly suggested stripping/cleaning/reassembling/greasing rear axle 'pots' would be a good idea, whilst off the car. These items are not serviced very often, and apparently can be a cause of flaminia gearbox failures.
 
One done with new 'boot', and one to go.

How did you clean the calliper "saddles" - looks fabulous.

Great work Charles

One question - the gearbox 'filler cap' - that sits ontop of the transaxle - mine will not undo - I assume it's threaded - or does it just pull out?

The T is soft so I can't just hit it or it will bend and heat hasn't proved very fruitful - it's just softening the metal! Any ideas?

Cheers
