MY 1600HF IN HEARTBEAT GARAGE


« Reply #62 on: 25 September, 2007, 05:27:56 PM »

Nice pics Colin. Looking at the pics ,it looks like the bonnet has a slight bulge in it very near the 9 on the number plate, if so I am curious why its there, Regards Roger. Huh? Just a quick thought, but was it running dellortos, which have the accelerator pumps on top, i have heard they get very close to the bonnet. But still confused. Huh?

Roger

Don't know about Dellorto's but certainly 45 Webers on one of the supposed Gp4 manifolds get VERY close to the bonnet. I raised my bonnet stops on the front valance a bit and ground down the top of the brass nut that covers the Weber inlet filter, to get some clearance.   So may be the car was fitted with Webers.

I think Michael's got it exactly right--it's to clear the carbs

I'm running Webers as well--only 40s, but I also have the brass nut beveled on the front carb, as the clearance is very tight because of the carb height and the manifold angle. I believe that 45 Dell'ortos are even a bit taller, as are 48 Webers (some of the later factory cars ran 48s); both of these probably need a bulge worked into the bonnet. If you look at contemporary photos of competition Fulvias, you'll notice that a number of them have a bonnet bulge to clear the carbs.

Thanks, I meant to say 45 dellortos, as i will be looking for webers for my 1600hf, as i have the manifold and a very modified head and cams, and extractor manifold and pipe, all going to be fitted, when i need to take the head off. Glad to see my eyes are still ok, and was not imagining seeing the bulge in the bonnet. While we are talking about bulges in bonnets, i remember someone saying to me at a car show where i had my MGC Roadster on display, "Why's your bonnet got a bulge in it mister"? My reply was so I can shut the bl***y thing!!  Grin Nuff said

I think you may be looking for some kind of perfection in bodywork in looking for a purpose made bulge in the bonnet. Iíll ask Dave, but I suspect the truth is Ď93 MTí was just a bit battle scarred. This poor quality photo might explain why:

And hereís a photo of when Ď93 MTí seems to be wearing different colours! Or is it yet another Fanalone that was similarly being given a hard time?

Really enjoyed these photos. 

A friend who's done a few fairly mild rallies in his Fulvia 1.3S was thinking of getting a modern Pug205 as concerned the old girl wasn't going to be up to frequent or harder rally action.  These photos rather put the lie to that one!!  My own view was that I'd rather be in a Fulvia than a Pug should the worse happen, and if things were going well would rather be in a Fulvia than a Pug, and when it came to doing the prep work I'd rather work on a Fulvia than a Pug.  He passed up the Pug and is focused on his Fulvia...
