David, I didn`t go into the actual overlap period, just that they are both open at the same time. But if you want specifics then the inlet valve opens at 28 degrees before TDC and the exhaust closes at 28 degrees after TDC, that is 56 degrees of overlap which is pretty good for a road engine (1600 Fulvia ). Obviously race engines can have more but it`s not just the overlap that gives more power, but cam profiles which determine speed and duration of opening and of course the amount of valve lift.
OIC.   Must be difficult to set without a timing wheel then.  Rather you than me.   I'll bear it in mind if ever I have to redo mine though.

The engine is finished and ready to fit , but I came across a bit of a "show-stopper", not drastic , the clutch plate and cover that I had for the engine is not correct !
New one should be here mid next week

I wonder if it's Flavia/2000 as it is about 1/2" bigger? If anyone can confirm and/or wants it , it is yours for £25 plus postage (marked as Valeo 215 DBR)

Just finishing off the oil cooler now

The block looks a very thin filling in that head/sump sandwich.  Only just noticed its green.

The green is a personal thing - and will match the plug leads .....

(I think that they were originally a boring light grey)

All the clutch parts arrived last week, so it is ready to go again. Just before I do the swap though, I will fit a new set of carbs that I rebuilt this week.

It will be good to set them up on a running engine then they can go onto the shelf as a known entity

Simon, great job as always. How did you remove the broken chain oiler eventually?

Is it not called gravel spray , maybe stone chip ?? - It is a textured paint (undercoat) that is often used under the bumper line and on cills before painted in bodycolour. I have been using a UPOL product called Gravitex at about £10/litre

Hi Simon, did you apply it using a compressor and gun? Or does it come in a spray can form?

Sorry, only just spotted this reply !

I use it from a can and attach a spry gun (schutz type) via compressor

Not the name of well known single by Britney Spears, but an ongoing inability to say "no"

I was seduced by Chris Gawne's Fulvia Berlina 1967 GT and collected her from Italy on Thursday.

I left Chris's place at 7.30 am on Thursday and arrived back here at about 7.30 pm that evening, a total of almost exactly 1000 kms

What a lovely motor car - just a delight to drive, not quick like an HF (!) but nippy up to 70mph and very happy with modern traffic. Once you get used to the low gearing and settle in to the buzzy little engine, it just keeps going.

On the motorways I kept to 4500 rpm, with overtaking up to 5000 rpm , so that means 70mph ish, with a bit more when you need it.

The suspension is fabulous, especially on poor surfaces and handling is lovely and chuckable.

Now she's back here , I need to clean the carb jets and fit another set of fuel filters, but that's it. The car hasn't been used much over the years and the mileage is very low - only 34,500 miles ...There is a very fine dust in the tank that may take a little time (and a supply of filters) to sort out

I probably won't do a separate thread for this one, because there isn't a lot to say but she is an excellent addition to the fleet and one that Mathilda already approves of - compared to the HF ,it's a lot more comfortable in the back !

Congratulations Simon,
Welcome to one of the best kept lancia secrets club!

And I'm not in the least surprised that Mathilda likes her,
I've just turned a lovely shade of green.

Having cleaned the jets and changed the filters it was Controle Technique (MOT) this morning - all perfect , as expected !
They always have to put something on the form so today it was a dent on a subframe cross-member - I can live with that

Next job is to get all the paperwork together in order to get her registered in France before the end of the month , just in case the "B" word causes any unforeseen problems

Yes, appointment in Narbonne for a "Quitus Fiscal" on Monday piece of paper that lets me move onto the next step.... FIAT France should be supplying another piece of paper next week as well, so getting tight re timings

I had both berlinas out today, so a couple of photos showing what 5 years difference makes - obviously just the cosmetics, we could go into pages about other differences

They both look small against the Land Rover !

It seems anyone who drives a Berlina is always impressed.
The Coupe gets all the attention, but I suspect the Berlina is the better car.

I bought my coupe because I think it is beautiful, but donít think Iíll ever get used to the bouncy ride.
