Castrol ST90 is formulated for Lancia Gearboxes back Aprilia and still relevant for Delta.....

That's brilliant! I have a 50s ST90 can that I use to keep my gear oil in - but I never realised (until now!) that it was the correct one to keep in the car!

Thanks...

just shows what a bit of Spring weather.... anyway the gearbox is full, the engine oil is replenished along with a new filter. a short length of exhaust pipe from the manifold is now in place to take some of the smoke/steam/flames away from under the bonnet when the beast wakes from it's 40+ year sleep. A problem with the long bolt holding the bottom hose assembly means the radiator will have to come out so that will be tomorrows job. I had a chat with a local company that fabricates fibre glass things as to see if it would be possible to make some quality front wings in fibre glass for the series 1 cars. He was a bit evasive but the outcome was a large amount of cash for the moulds followed by still quite large amounts of cash for each wing. My thinking was they would last forever once fitted never mind.

Re wings, there is a new aluminium rear wing for sale on eBay at the moment for 500 euros, so that gives a guide/sanity-check price for remaking them ........ I think !

What is the problem with the rad bolt ? On mine it looks like it is made of stainless , so that was OK but I did have to make a new gasket for the "Christmas Tree" to stop the leaks

Hi
I had put the wrong gasket in a fibre one from my gasket set, so it did not nip up and just rotated and then the gasket fell down. the proper one I think is a rubber O ring. I found a suitable one and it has tightened up OK will get it back in today after I have had a go at the indicators.

Hi all
Well it's got water in and a bit of petrol to test the tank for leaks and I did detect a change in the cranking over so I think it has fired a few kicks so we will charge the battery up and stick half a gallon of fresh petrol in and see what happens. Most of the water has ran out over my feet from the stop cock thing and as expected the waterpump seal. Still encouraging signs, we have oil pressure, a spark, not sure yet about fuel pressure will know better when the pump has something to draw I just chucked an oilcan lids worth into the carb and cranked it over.

Hi all
spent a couple of hours today but no result...looks like the fuel pump is not playing ball, we have petrol at the tank side of the pump but nothing is getting up to the carb. I can blow quite easily down the pipe back to the tank so that is clear. I put a new diaphragm in the pump so will check that on Tuesday now, as I have to go to see my old Mum who is not very well. The water leaks seem to have slowed a bit and no new ones have appeared of any liquid so far so good.The starter motor seems a bit feeble I remember the one on my Flavia coupe was powerful enough to drive the car about with the plugs out and in 1st or reverse I don't think this one would take kindly to that. My fevered mind came up with the idea of a gravity feed to the carb just to see if the engine will start I must learn to be patient!!! I had a near escape with an old Vauxhall Victor when I was cleaning some engine parts, next thing someones dog was making a woofing sound and my boots were on fire. I told my Dad  "I think I've set the garage on fire Dad!" he was very calm I thought he would go ballistic as the garage was attached to the house but no he just peaked round the door into the garage from the utility room and said " I think we had better call the Fire Brigade" Dads don't you love em. The neighbours enjoyed the fun anyway.
any theories, tricks, new swear words, or advice please feel free as I don't fancy taking that pump off..

I must admit that I usually pour in a cap full of petrol directly into the carb (easy on downdrafts) in order to bypass any pump issues/questions. Not set fire to the garage yet , but it saves turning the engine over for ages and it tells me if the engine is likely to start. Having said that, I also start new engines without water in .... get them running for 5 secs or so and then fill up with water.

The new replacement pumps that I sourced for the Consortium work well, look very good and are not expensive. I have been using one on mine and indeed I haven't been using the electric pump.

Keep at it !

Fuel pump sorted..the pushrod from the camshaft? was gummed up and stuck in the out position and the spring inside the pump was not strong enough to push it back in.. a quick clean with a fine sandpaper, bit of oil and back in.. we now have petrol at the carb and squirting out of the accelerator jet..will check the sparks tomorrow with a fully charged battery.

Hi all
anti-climax here .. just a few subdued pops and an exhaust fume aroma.. I'm thinking the poor old thing has not got enough compression to suck any petrol air mixture in never mind squeeze it and make it go bang.. will sleep on it and have another play tomorrow.
