Quick question for anyone.

Brian has kindly lent me a bush to be fabricated and put into the gears to tighten up a rather sloppy gear change in Emilia. Gave it to my local classic spanner monkey to get done and fitted, what seems like an age ago. To cut a long story short he hasnt done anything with it claiming he cant find anyone to do it. On to my three points.....
1. Is it straight forward to do?
2. Does anyone know a reputable place that would get it done?
3. Sorry Brian that its taking so long.
Neil,
No Problem,
If you can't get anyone to make them and you need them you can have it's companion.

Brian, that's a really kind offer. I want to try and get something sorted, but if it comes to it, I may well take you up on that offer. Are these bushes the kind of thing I could source from Omicron? Is it worth getting back in contact with them?

If anyone was planning it, I will be watch the AMOC meet at Snetterton on the 8th of July, all being well, in Emilia with family in tow!

P,

Didnt see anything similar from that link, unless I should contact them directly. I am going to talk to the garage which looks after my modern cars to see if they can help.

Once I get her back (hopefully tomorrow) I will upload some new pics of her with the new mirrors.......... Hopefully!

Neil you can try but I doubt it, I think the best bet is to see if Cavalitto still has the huge bcgful that mine came from, can't see they would have sold them all, even if it was 15 years ago when I got mine.
Sorry I can't make Snetterton but nice to know Emelia will be up and about

I will email Cavalitto and see what they say.

On a brighter note, I have Emilia back! whoop whoop! Now running alot sweeter after having new plugs and carb servicing kits. New mirrors installed too. Photo to follow after I get back from work. Even the gear changes don't seem as bad. Maybe its the better weather?

Just have my new plates to fit, and a quick wash down and clean up and she is ready for some mileage!

Oh, I now have a Vitaloni overtaking mirror available if anyone wants it......... No idea what they are worth!

Hi Neil,
Pleased Emilia is up and running, pretty much sounds like you've had done what I thought was necessary when I drove her
Good luck with Cavalitto, would you mind getting 4 for me if he has them in stock please.

Notice the new mirrors Brian?  I have also now fitted the new number plates (aluminium instead of plastic with an Italian sized front).

I have a price for the bushes from Cavalitto, and will be ordering this weekend.

I also reread an old work ticket from when she was up north of the border with the previous owner. It has an advisory of the upper ball joints being split. I can't find anything to say these have been done.......

Here is the most up to date photo of Emilia. New mirrors, number plates and added car seat in the back for the little one to enjoy some classic motoring of a more sophisticated kind......

Fulvia Berlina 2C

Continuing this thread.
Photo of Fulvia outside pub in Wanstead yesterday evening.
Car booked in tomorrow to reverse flush the radiator and renew coolant to hopefully cure the hot running.

What photo? What pub? I wanted to see if it was one of my old drinking haunts.
