electronic rev-counter is on the points side. Maybe some kind of immobiliser. Lancia fitted a variety of aftermarket bolsters etc some with a key switch to kill the ignition, but I cannot see that working in your set up.

Thanks Tim, the symptoms are, turn off key and engine falters then dies after 10 seconds. Switch seems ok when checked for open circuit between 12v in and 12v out to coil (cotton braided wire) albeit with engine not running. Disconnect cotton braided wire from coil, same thing happens. Leave cotton braided wire connected to coil and disconnect mystery black wire, same thing happens. Disconnect both of these wires at the coil and engine stops of course. Richard

Hi Richard, you might be interested in my experience with the brakes in my Flaminia. The servo had been overhauled by Omicron shortly before I bought the car but I was never that happy with the way the car stopped.  After discussing with other owners, a story of the unreliability of the Flaminia servo emerged.  In particular, David Wakefield told me that he had experienced repeated problems until he finally upgraded to a modern servo.  I decided to follow his example.  There are not that many dual circuit remote servos being made today but Frenos Iruna in Spain do one (available from S-V-C in UK) for about 300 which is less than half the cost of getting the original overhauled. I made up a couple of mounting brackets that used the original mounting points and installed the new unit with no trouble - see picture - except that I had to fit a hydraulic brake light switch as the new unit (unlike the original) does not incorporate one.  Result - the car now stops like a modern car and the performance can be exploited with no worries about stopping.  More important, the unit has been totally reliable.
           Thanks for the advice. I now have what looks like the pictured servo assembly (from Car Builder Solutions). The instructions say one end is for front brakes and the other is for rear. Does anyone here know the reason for this? Advice welcome, Richard

Thanks for the advice. What is the best method to select an appropriate camshaft for the various carburettors available? I have one camshaft in use, one in my spare engine and one in my store. Advice welcome. Richard

      Having contacted the supplier, they say there is a very small difference in the two ends, but in practice can be used either way around. Richard
