Well the rough tactics in cleaning the oil feed pipe meant I had to buy a new one, the OE design is available but at near 200 once VAT and shipping are factored in that seemed to be a bit excessive.
A E Car Lancia parts came to the rescue again. I've used them a good few times and Eddie is always quick at sending parts and answering enquiries.
They do an aftermarket kit that has a braided flexible outer and comes with all the fittings to be a direct replacement, screwing straight into the turbo rather than using the bolted flange.
Tight for space so pleased I changed this now with access OK before refitting the radiator etc.
But as you can see in the pictures, a fracture or pinhole in the old one would have been a real disaster!

Car is back together now, well enough to have had it running. Bumper, bonnet and grille I left off so I can see what's going on easier. All looking good so far but to see if the stud leak fix has worked it'll need a few miles under its belt.
I'll also do an oil and filter change too now it's had a run up to temperature and flushed any debris out.

In memory of the previous owner, Tony Young who sadly died last year I have vowed to use the car more, even for just a ride out.
Last year between tests I only did around 100miles!
Tony loved the car and took an age to sell it to me, to just leave it under cover in my rented workshop is not what he would have wanted.
A planned run up to Kielder forest next month for a rally is just that start.
RIP Tony.

As the car is freshly taxed and tested it's now at home so no excuses not to use it..
As I have a season pass for my local Cadwell Park racetrack then that's an easy excuse for a ride out.

On the way home I called in at the former Mountview motors garage that were the Lancia dealership in Horncastle who sold it new to Tony, only him and me being the owners.
The garage is owned by a friend of a friend now and I've heard it may be going through some changed soon, hopefully not to housing!
So with the "I'll do that sometime" thoughts of pulling up to take a fresh picture of the car outside looming large in my mind it dawned on me that I ought to call in on the way home from Cadwell, just in case the place dissappears!

Great to see you're getting out & about in your Delta Kev  Grin. After all your hard work it would be a shame for it to just sit in the garage gathering dust. Sometimes I drive my Delta to work or even just to the shops as I love being out in it  Cheesy.

Hi Rob, nice to hear from you again.
It is indeed all too easy to let time pass and not use the cars after all the effort we've put in, glad to hear you're using yours too.

I've heard it can be a right pain with the photographer - but would you consider doing an article with one of the monthlies in memory of Tony?  (Am sure Tim Heath would help...)  It might be "another day out", and sharing his memory, and its a great story and brilliant restoration of a wonderful car.

I can't see why not David, if they consider it worthy.
It was a struggle at times to get the car done but never in doubt that it would eventually be back on the road, too good a story to give up on.

The wind noise had always disappointed me on the Delta since getting it finished, I know cars have moved on a lot in the last 30 years in that regard but it was hard to hold a conversation at anything above 60mph.
The standard seal on the doorway is little more than a trim to cover the sharp metal flange, which on mine it left a gap around the door window frames.
There is a seal that is on the door itself which keeps the rain out but I thought if I could fill that gap then that may help.
I came across this seal on the Woolies trim website, a small lip flange that protrudes out but can easily be crushed so shouldn't hinder any where the door would fit tighter.

The original is just a strip with no real seal on it.

I fitted it to all 4 door openings, down to the seat on the rears as I figured the seat itself would block any noises.

It's nicely flexible and easy to fit.
You need 8.5M to do the 4 doors, I bought a 1M test piece first to see how it fitted then once happy ordered another 8M which was just a few inches short enough, so ordering 8.5M will be enough if anyone wants to try it.
I can say it has improved things, not up to modern car standards by any means, the big square door mirrors don't help that any plus the roof gutters, but now at 60mph a conversation is much simpler, even at 70 the noise isn't anywhere near as intrusive as it was.
The doors require a slightly more firmer push to close but as ever with new seals that should ease slightly as they settle.
So for around 50 I consider it money well spent.

The website if anyone is interested, I know there are cheaper places to buy but Woolies are a good outfit and always helpful so I'm happy to use them.
