Stan - the idea is to fill the space behind the bearing with bread and then compress it using the bolt. You tap the end of the bolt with a reasonably sized hammer and it pushes the bearing out. It is necessary to repack the bread a couple of times

Re rivets, you are absolutely correct, they don't like screwed on plates, but I've never (so far) been stopped. I have previously put false rivets in the plates so it looks correct whilst retaining the original setup
Grease will do the same job as the bread, and it doesn't have to be French or English grease, Any old grease will do👍

That is ingenious. You would have made a good SOE agent. Stopped and found to be only carrying a baguette, then destroy a vital piece of equipment.

It really does work .... due to do the "proper" one tomorrow

As an aside, does anyone want to see the Fulvia engine rebuild ? I can post as I go along. Lots of people know about Fulvia engines so may not be that interesting !

The machining work has been done, so it is more about re-assembling

Yes please Simon, as I've never actually had to work on a Fulvia engine.

Just noticed colour discussions.  Rosso York is almost exactly the same as Rosso Nearco which is a currently available colour and looks very nice on my Sport.

My Lancia Gamma is Rosso Nearco (orginal paint) and it is much brighter the York......

Perhaps it depends on who makes the paint!

Correct.... Mine was factory DuPont as stated on the paint label in the Gamma Boot lid! I have seen a slightly darker Rosso Nearco on another Gamma that had been repainted. Still no where near York IMHO.

As promised....

First job was to clean everything and then painted the block, oil pump, pulley etc. This always takes an age - at least 2 days and I haven't finished it all yet

Started with the crankcase. All the bits are shown in the 1st photo. I "plastigaged" the crank because I didn't do the machining and wanted to check it was correct. NB when fitting the crank, one of the thrust washers is shown incorrectly on the TAV, the grooves need to be facing out, not towards the bearing cap

1600 engines differ from 1300's at the bottom end - as well as larger crank journals, the crank is held in place with studs and not bolts. Otherwise everything is pretty similar

All the 1600 engines I have seen are painted yellow under the engine mounting - why ?? I repainted it anyway

All new gaskets , fitted with hermetite and new crank seals. I use the old ones to tap in the new ones.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed a flange on the rear oil seal, a "speedy-seal" has been fitted in the past.

Finally a couple of photos of the completed crank case , front and back. The front shows the oil pump on the RHS and the petrol pump mounting on the LHS, both driven off a gear on the front of the crank (nb photo shows it the wrong way round !)

Next flywheels .....

I have heard some people fasten the crankcase to the block before proceeding

Thanks Tim - all in place.

A couple of photos from today:

Flywheels - I have 3 different weights, the standard 7kg a lightened 6kg and a paper doily that weighs a mere 3.2kgs. It's not intended to be a race engine so planning to fit the 6kg. I have heard that the super-light will not tick over below 1100 rpm

First jobs - cleaning the head-bolt threads on the block and gapping the piston rings
 
Ready to go .....
