I am having a little, no, make that a lot of difficulty in identifying the part number, spec.(micro-fahreds) etc for my Appia Berlina......
Can anyone say what part number, or specification I need to know.
I have one Intermotor 3391 ,I think?   that is rated for Fiat x1/9 , 127. 124. 128 .There is no marking, so I do not know the spec.
What is the harm in fitting other than the correct one, assuming it is 12 volt....There seems to be a lot of mystery regarding the capacitor/condenser.....

In general, there is no difference in 6 or 12 V systems in terms of selecting the condenser. Moreover, as long as the condenser is rated in the range 0.2-0.3 microFaraday, it will be OK for the Appia (and Fulvia). Check that its mounting is compatible with the distributor, though, Andrea

The Appia Consortium has a big bag of brand new ones...

I was hoping to find a cross reference chart someplace!.....
I cant recall seeing the rating on the condenser that was fitted......also ,what determines the microfad
rating,is it the number of cylinders, the coil characteristics , the plugs.....the capacity of the engine..
Id like to understand this much more than just changing the condenser.
Thanks to you all for your replies.

Condenser/capacitor value is determined by the ignition system, mainly the coil. The common value on most cars is 0.22 mfd. but between 0.22-0.29 will work fine. If the value is too large/ small there will pitting on the moving point and a build up on the fixed contact and vice/versa. ( I can`t recall which way round at the moment but I have a note somewhere if you need to know.
It is there to prevent arcing across the contacts as they open and the magnetic field that is built up inside the coil collapses and oscillates between coil and condenser until it fades away. It`s the collapse of the magnetic field and the resulting inductive kick that causes the secondary high voltage spark across the plugs.
