No probs on the hijacking of my thread Kev, it's always good to chat to a fellow Delta nut! Glad that you finally found those 2 bits of trim, you must have been really chuffed Grin. It can be right pain in the ar$e when you can't find certain parts especially when you know you've put them 'somewhere safe'. I lost the plastic cap that goes over the nut on the rear wiper. I spent ages looking for it & eventually bought a replacement from Shapeways. 2 weeks later I found it in the channel that goes beneath the rear edge of the roof panel (behind the top of the tailgate). Still can't work out how it got there  Huh?.
Cheers,
Rob

After a bit of a break from working on the Delta I've braved the cold weather & got on with refitting the rear crossmember & yesterday fitted the rear brake discs, calipers & pads  Grin. The next job is to fit the new copper brake pipes & the rubber flexis to the calipers.

Cheers Kev  Wink. As you know there are times when you feel like you need a break! Especially after finding all that extra work towards the end of last year  Undecided.

My chief mechanic Tony came round today & fitted new copper brake pipes for the complete back half of the Delta! I fitted the rear rubber flexis & made a few cups of tea  Wink. He said how advanced the Delta was for it's time, which is a compliment as he doesn't usually like working on Italian cars.

Being a surprisingly advanced design is what Lancia used to be about. It's one of the reasons I find the rebadging of Chrysler 200 and 300 distasteful. A recovery man once exclaimed at my Y10 having rear wash wipe and electric windows in the mid eighties. We take those things for granted on a small car now.

Yes, I have friends with new cars that still don't have half the features my 1999 Lybra does. It must have been quite a car back then. It's not the top version either.

Just a quick update .... I've refitted the fuel tank & fitted a new handbrake cable but progress has come to a halt again  Sad. My VW Camper has obviously been getting jealous of the time I've been spending with my Delta lately! As I was checking the camper's bodywork over I found quite a few rusty holes that will need to be fixed before it's MOT in a few weeks time! Oh the joys of running old cars (& vans)  Wink.

Work on my VW camper has consumed all of my spare time lately. I'd just finished repairing the front off side wheel arch (inner & outer) when I spotted a small rusty hole in front of the rear near side  wheel arch which has spread to a much larger hole & even through to the inner structure  Roll Eyes . My daughter said "it's like the Delta all over again!". So after spending a few weeks on the camper I thought it would be nice to spend some quality with my Delta  Grin. Fitting a new clutch is the last BIG job on the list & I lack the confidence & expertise to do it myself so I asked my chief mechanic Tony if he could do the honours  Wink. After a few hours he had the gearbox off & now over the next few days I'm going to clean up & paint any rusty brackets etc that need it. Cheers, Rob

Hello Rob,
Fantastic job you are doing with this !  Can you please share details of getting the brake compensator unit?

I had assumed they were no longer available.

Hi Leo,
The original brake compensator is very difficult to find, I did find one on an Italian website but they wanted 380 Roll Eyes. I gave Tanc Barratt a ring & he said you can use the one from the early integrales (Part No : 82407503) you just have to swap the metal forked arm that goes through the rubber boot. The end of the Delta HF turbo's forked arm is vertical whereas on the early integrals it's horizontal as in the picture. Hope that's helpful  Wink.
Cheers, Rob

I've been juggling my time recently between my Delta & our VW T25 camper which has kept me busy  Wink. I've had more help from my mechanic Tony who has fitted a new clutch & C.V. boots on the Delta while I fitted new front wheel bearings, bottom ball joints, brake discs, calipers, pads & flexi brake pipes. It feels like I'm getting close now & can't wait to take it for it's first MOT in over 16 years  Roll Eyes.

Your mechanic is a real hero if he got the gearbox off and on again in that confined space!!!
