I think Juliet is the best!!!!!  I know I have nothing to complain about myself, but car seats in the bedroom?......NO WAY!!!!!!!! (even if they're freshly upholstered!)

But it's going to look very smart Simon!

I did have a windscreen and rear hood for a Beta Spyder laid on a spare bed for about a year without too many complaints.....

Not even I would get away with a set of car seats in the bedroom ..... the seats are at the trimmer's, he sells beds as well - although Juliet reckons I should get a bed installed in the garage anyway !

Started cleaning up the engine bay. Using Starchem paint stripper first then rotary paint stripper disks - plus lots of scraping. The dentist tools are very useful for the seams and corners

I forgot to show a picture of the jury rigged rear suspension - blocks of wood for suspension and broom handle to limit the toe-in (slid down the torsion bar tubes to keep them lined up)

Bringing beautiful pieces of historic Lancia mechanical architecture into the house is something that should be embraced with great gusto (so long as one has remembered to clean off the bigger bits of dirt!!).

At present in the lounge I have two heads and a crankshaft secreted beneath a Victorian armchair and on my desk are the switches and some dashboard instruments all from a B20.

I must admit that when I laid out the Augusta front wings, running boards and rear wings in the lounge I did choose a time when Lynn was not in!!! I hope I have attached the correct photograph!!!!

Love that picture ....

After a lot of paint stripper, heatgun and scraping the engine bay has had a light coat of etch-primer to protect it before the body goes off to Dog for painting

Before that I need to weld in a new side to the battery box and fill in a number of holes in the bulkhead

Over the years holes have been drilled for engine bay mods, so I am still looking for photos to get it back to original. For example, the coil had been moved onto the bulkhead and the original bracket cut off - you can see the line of weld on the RHS inner wheelarch.

This car had also had a later oiler fitted for the front suspension because of the 2nd ser axle. Because this is a very early car, I don't think that there was ever a suspension oiler fitted, but I am not sure - if anyone can help Huh?

This is a photo of an early chassis bodied Aprilia (No 96) engine bay, although not a pf car.
Hope it is of some help, yours looks like it has been shot at!

Thanks Ade, yes it looks as if it got both barrels - I will be welding up most of the holes !

Interesting that there is no hint of an oiler in your photo - on mine there are no holes (surprisingly !) for oil pipes so I think mine was similar. Do you have any other pictures ?

It also confirms the position of the coil , that has been placed elsewhere on mine

Trying to decide whether to refit the heater ........... it would fill some holes

Vendanges has been delayed (good flavours, but not quite there yet) so, the great clean-up continues.

Few details:
Handbrake pulleys , before and after
Hand throttle mechanism - this is only half of it ! Unfortunately I am missing the throttle linkage if anyone can help ??
Steering box took an age to clean up .... and then I'm going to paint it black again !
Once bolts etc. are cleaned , they are bagged and sprayed with WD40 to stop them tarnishing. Other, more visible bits are sprayed with varnish
Diff and fuel gauge sender covers have been striped and painted - the original felt on the floor was glued in with a superglue that is nigh on impossible to remove, so I've done my best, painted it and will be recovering with felt anyway ..... don't tell anyone it's not perfect !

Sorry, that is the only photo I have of an early chassis bodied Aprilia.
The front suspension oiler was only on the second series cars, so yours shouldn't have one.

Which bits of the hand throttle linkage do you need?

Thanks Ade
I am missing everything from the spring (part 38-63530) forward - including the carb !

I have a later Weber Carb that I can fit, but still need the linkage. I have a couple of people looking for bits, but so far I haven't found them

It is the only , significant , bit that is missing ....... I think !

This is the picture that is confusing me , it shows a 39 model - ie 1st ser chassis - with something on the bulkhead ....

The item in your photo labeled as the front suspension oiler is in fact for the rear damper control. It only became available from car 6601 (Presumably standard car chassis number).
Your photo shows a 39 chassis number but does not give the prefix, so is it 239 or 439? (1st or 2nd series)
I still don't think your car should have this if it is very early.

Here's a photo of a second series Aprilia chassis bodied car (Pinin Farina).
The front suspension oiler is at the top of the picture (by the washer bottle)
The brake fluid reservoir is at the bottom of the picture, and as this is an English car the rear damper control reservoir is the
copper cylinder just above the brake reservoir.

Thanks Ade, as always you come up with a photo - I think you must have them all very well organised, unlike my mass of messy images.

Noel was in touch overnight as well with similar info about the damper-control-thing, so thanks to him as well

I have only properly had 2nd series cars before (I had EGH 119 for a while but didn't do anything with it, so it doesn't count !) so these early cars are a bit of a mystery for me

Yes I do have my photos well organised, and I have recently had all my original negative film photos digitized, so the archive of Lancia photos is quite extensive! ... did you mention EGH119.......
