I have in my possession a Fulvia steering box which has 3 and bit turns lock to lock. Can somebody confirm whether this is an HF box?

What is stamped on the box? Generally an Hf is 2 and bit turns lock to lock.

It's stamped Gemmer LA9 a quick trawl of the web suggests this is a standard box.

Footnote; I've just come across this brief history of Gemmer which I found quite interesting, it's written with a Morgan slant but don't let that put you off. http://www.gomog.com/allmorgan/gemmer.html

Further update; my 1.3S has exactly 4 turns lock to lock. The slightly higher gearing of the LA9 could be a nice modification.
Tim, do HFs really have just 2 and bit turns lock to lock? They must be brutal to park when collecting the shopping from Netto sorry Waitrose.

i always shop at Waitrose in my HF not only for the complimentary cappachino but the car park is always empty......Parking HF steering is a mite heavy without a boot full but lighter with a boot full of goodies!

I will check my spare box....

No cup holder in a Fulvia for your free coffee is the problem, I take a modern and less chance of some careless trolley or door damaging it, the car park here gets quite full. If you load the boot does the steering get lighter with a HF box despite the wider tyres?

Getting back to the box, I started a thread 5 years ago on Vivalancia.com. This was about my spare box LA9 3.25 turns ltl!!!! The thread was exhaustive but not really conclusive in that the most persausive was that this was an HF box but my S2/S3 parts manual has this as LA21 (hd) LA26 (rhd) for HF, and LA16/LA18 for standard cars. Not sure about S1 part number info but Flavia is LA7/LA14 (lhd/rhd) not LA9 stated below as part of the thread.

http://www.viva-lancia.com/lancia_fora/read.php?10,768174,771390#msg-771390

Of course while the box may turn 3.25 ltl in practice with steering lock restricters this will reduce ltl at the steering wheel.

So it seems Rob you and I have the same type of spare box. Welcome to the world of HF!! Certainly beneficial when taking on the Stelvio although I coped quite well in my 1600 sport with 4 turns ltl....
