I came across a Lancia spanner, code 8091030 recently. What intrigues me is that it is an imperial size - 5/8 & 9/16

I thought they were completely metric, so why is there an imperial one ? What is it for ? Am I being dense ?

On Flavias it was used to remove the Bendix fuel pump cover which was imperial.

Many fittings and threads on Lambdas are imperial, as Lancia used American made machinery at some stage. Augusta brakes are Lockheed and imperial, as are some Aprilia brakes.

I can't quite understand the mentality here in Italy..... at a Sunday car boot sale grandly advertised as an "Antique Market" I enquired, at a stall selling a few rusty tools, if he had a 14mm Allen key - required for the drain plug on the Appia diff and he said he would bring one for the next weeks sale.
During the week I bought a new one in a local tool shop for 4 but the following Sunday I asked the guy if he had remembered to bring the item.
Surprisingly he had and he "only" wanted 15 for it, I told him sorry but I had bought a new one for 4 so didn't want it......he quickly dropped his price to 4 ....... so now I have a spare one.

Thank you for all the answers, I knew that someone would know ! (re S1 Aurelia berlina, the parts book doesn't list it so I think they are after the "Aurelia price-hike" factor)

Re Italian prices, it can be like that here as well. Sometimes, though, you are lucky ......

My Fulvia front brake calipers are held together with 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch AF headed bolts. However I would not fancy undoing them with open-ended spanners!

I would agree it's most likely for a truck. However, the 46mm end will fit an Aprilia clutch bearing nut!
