Title: Augusta running board/outrigger interface
Post by: rutley1 on 05 June, 2020, 10:23:54 AM
Can anyone help me with information to correctly refit my running boards please?  The outrigger brackets and the running board brackets appear to Clash.  Could someone snap a photo of how they should be mounted.  Any assistance gratefully received.
Regards to all
Richard

Originally, the support brackets (outriggers?) were welded to the running boards. I had them separated in order to have less corrosion. Each bracket is attached by 2ea.  M8 bolts. The running board itself is attached to the front and rear mud guards by M6 bolt and nuts. No screws between running board and door sill.  Pardon the dirt.

I hope that helps

Thanks very much for your prompt reply.
These are what I call outriggers (photo) they bolt directly to the chassis (M8).  If the running boards attach to the front and rear wings only, what function do the outriggers have?
The brackets that form part of the running board do not appear to be able to attach to the outriggers so itís all confusing for me.
From your photos, what do the brackets on the running boards pick up to?
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
Regards

I am sorry, I have posted one photo twice.

It appears that your Augusta is a factory drop head. There the attachment of the running boards is different from the berlina. I have no experience on drop head Augusta. The parts cataloge differs in those part numbers, they are all prefixed "34-xxxx". The outriggers carry the weight of a person stepping onto the running boards.

I have a slight suspicion that the running board on your photo is from a berlina.

Iain Simpson of Australia sent me photos of an Augusta factory drop head. It can be seen that the attachment of the running boards is quite different from the berlina. It also confirms that the running board in the picture DA67C09C-0631-4AD7-AF81-DBAEAE59BD68.jpeg is one from a berlina.

I hope that helps   Karl

Hello Karl,
thank you - you have solved my conundrum.  The photo you kindly sent is exactly what I was looking for.
I see now that the works cabriolet running board mounts are mounted completely different to the saloon.  I have 3 sets of running boards (2 original plus 1 new copy) and it will be simple to fabricate the brackets shown in your photo.
For your interest, the attached picture Carrozzeria clearly shows the outriggers (as I call them).  The 800 dimension exactly matches the Berlina brackets, hence the confusion.
Thanks again for your help
Richard

Richard,

Good to read that you are on the way now. The picture you have attached seems to be a page of an old Lancia Motor Club Journal. I wonder where I can get a complete copy of it?

Regards  Karl

Karl,
I am more than happy to send a copy of this 1972 club journal, it's about 50 pages dedicated to the Augusta.  The question is do you prefer a paper copy or an electronic copy?  If you prefer paper, please send me a snail-mail address.  I don't know if this forum could handle the large file size of a scanned copy so I may have to send it directly as an email or I could put a USB pen drive copy in the mail.
Let me know what works for you.
Regards
Richard

Richard/Karl, have you checked if this publication is already in the LMC library?

Hello all and thanks P,

I went to look for the journal in question, No. 42, Sept. 1972. I have found the individual articles listed in an exel file but they cannot be downloaded.

Richard, I'd be grateful if you can send me the journal to my e-mail adress in the LMC data base if that works. Many thanks.
Regards Karl

Karl, I have sent a pdf copy of the 1972 Lancia Journal to your private email.  Itís a difficult thing to do without creating an enormous file size.  Itís not perfect but I hope itís readable for you.
