Thanks for the prompts.Found the problem! There was still the plastic film protector over the Blackberry lens which has been deteriorating over the past year. The scrub it got at the O2 shop probably made things worse.Anyhow perfect pics now but the resolution has improved which is preventing posting them. Resizing reqd. Richard

Richard, lovely photos, so much for modern technology !

Very satisfying to see that working out. Getting the original number is a nice touch. You can go to the shops in it now I imagine.

I think I used it to cover the hole in the passenger footwell when I made my Mrs travel in it...

Hi Alan,did Mrs. Murphy enjoy travelling in the Flaminia? I think I should fit seatbelts before taking passengers.It seems that there are no existing mounting points though.Also I shall refurbish the rear leaf springs to restore rear ride height. At the moment I am improving the fuse box and electrical connections.Also replacing the existing copper wire in the 6 cross-drilled subframe bolts with stainless wire which is a good oppotunity to make use of the lock-wire pliers.A lovely tool.The missing wheelnuts turned up in the boot too.richard

Richard, I would be grateful to hear of any conclusions that you come to about your rear spring refurbishment as I am currently considering a similar problem on my convertible.  I recently decided to renew the silent block bushes in my springs only to find, on the first one that removed, that the last quadrant of the eye that the front bush fits into had cracked right through allowing the spring to slide to and fro slightly as it flexes.  I suspect that this is why the car looked slightly low at the back - because the spring length is not properly restrained. I think that it has been like it for years - never failed an MOT because of it - but difficult to spot.  Elizabeth Cliffe at Omicron told me that her own car suffered the same fault some years ago.  Anyway, I think that my solution will be to replace the top leaf and I have been attempting to locate any old springs that people may have that I could "rob".  If that fails, I shall need to get new top leaves made.

Hi Charles,my plan is to add a leaf (second largest) to my existing springs and see how that affects ride- height.One of my spare springs has an eye broken off so no use.I did the same to my Fulva in the Sedan thread.richard

Or I might swap a middle leaf for a larger one.In the meantime found these in the boot.Rubber parts which I have not come across before.

Hi Richard. congratulations on a superb job.

I am not sure, but I think those bits might be to do with the inner rear CV joint. One part has a set of arms radiating from the driven shaft and the other part fits over it with sectors cut out that the arms engage in. However the cut outs are much bigger than the arms and have a rubber pad either side of the arm to cushion the force as it takes up the driving force. Perhaps someone else can confirm this.

Hi Alan,did Mrs. Murphy enjoy travelling in the Flaminia? richard

No - she is at best a reluctant passenger in Lancias of any type although she always said that the Flaminia was the nicest of them (to look at). I think she only travelled in it once or twice on a very short local run to walk the dog at the beach or something.

I thought you would have cleared the boot by now! Good to hear you found the extra bronze wheelnuts I left you.

And yes, as Frank correctly says, those rubber things are from the rear driveshaft assembly - I had to dismantle it to fit the transaxle in the boot. Wonderful design and a thing of great beauty to work on - it was just a pity I had to do it in such a rush.

Did you get to the bottom of the horrible droning noise from the back end yet? Wheel bearing? That was why I had the spare rear end. Hopefully it will yield the necessary spares for you when you get around to it? Its from a 2.8 so the gearing is different ...and possibly some of the external linkages to the propshaft.

Droning sound not there at presemt but I will be working on the rear end this week including those  springs if I get a chance.Changing bearings requires the use of a special tool no doubt. Poor electrical connections now soldered and fuse box cleaned up.Also now have the "city lights" / yellow driving lights working reliably.
