Hopefully that's a long way off - and most stuff is fairly obvious and if not just a multimeter and a long fly lead.

What's hard is when there's the old and the repair and the accessory and the mystery all muddled in together - and this is CLEAN.

First job I got done was a rewire - a HEAP came out - and once John Savage had put in a new loom it wasn't touched again in my ownership and as far as I know since.

I expect if it was me I'd start with a heap of colours under the bonnet and some multicore down the sill and then run out of something and think "if I make a note of where it doesn't match up it will be ok" and of course then someone would wonder why the wire starts green one end and comes out purple the other  Grin

So just like French house wiring then!

When did Lancia switch to multicolour wiring?

The original loom was all labelled with nice aluminium tags with the cable number referring to wiring diagram. I used these when they were legible , most of the underbonnet ones were unreadable but if you were lucky the tag at the other end would be OK. Any new stuff I have numbered up and marked on a working copy of the wiring diagram from the owners handbook. Guess to do the job right I will need to draw up a revised diagram to keep with the car.

Have you a close up of the tags you used?  Happy with them?

We went to Lucca last week. First up was a convoy of Porsche 956 thingymebobs about a dozen of them just tootling through a piazza, then in the main square were about 30 Fiat 500s (they are really tiny closeup) . On the other side of the square some big noisy modern ferraris were revving up and taking off through the city so I ran back to the hotel (unsuccessfully ! getting lost) to get a camera then ran back getting lost again until I found Sarah still sipping a cool glass of prosecco and watching the fun. Now armed with a map we got back to the hotel and I got a couple of cameras and went back out to watch the fun. highlight being 3 Bugattis in V formation whizzing down the walls.

Sorry for the delay, but I think you asked somewhere about angle for refitting the engine. A couple of pictures of how mine came out. Still needed a bit of gentle rocking, but no significant catching ....

I first drained the sump as the oil likes to leak out when the engine is at such a steep angle. Using God's gift to the man on his own the engine crane I was relieved to be able to get the tail of the gearbox over the front and into the engine compartment. From there it was gently jack up the back of the gearbox and roll the car or push the crane and with a bit of judicious levering it was in. Main snag is a cable bracket on the D/S inner wing which catches on the accelerator pump body on the carb, also the air cleaner had to come off as the engine went further into the bulkhead.

unfortunately in all the confusion I did not get the prop and gearbox lined up so I will have to drop the propshaft to get the couplings fastened up. Then it is a reconnect everything and get my nice newly reconned radiator in, test all the wiring, and finally try that engine out.
My wife Sarah was most amazed the engine and box went in there seems to be no where near enough room but I had seen a pic in a Lancia manual of the engine and box coming out together so I knew it was possible. apologise for the quality of some of the pics they were taken with a phone camera. the last set of pics are better taken with a proper camera.
