I've used similar. 

The copper washer treatment was interesting.  The sort of thing I used to know.  It reminds me of some years back with a slipped disk I had a phase reading up on Austin 7s again, both the books I had and on the internet.  I stumbled across something interesting and was just saying to myself "I never knew that...." when I saw my own name at the bottom.

I was introduced to Graphogen for bearing assembly so time ago and would recommend for bearing surfaces.

The girls are away today so I have spent the afternoon undersealing the front end of the car. It took an age to mask everything, but I don't want to upset Dog by getting underseal on his nice clean primer .....

Simon, so you just etch primed only then undersealed, maybe I missed which product you used?

Actually, I used a zinc based primer on the bare metal so as to give a bit more protection and then a shutz type of underseal. I will have to do another coat at lower pressure because the bare metal bits have come up too smooth compared to the original..... oh well !

Did the back of the wings today and they are a lot better, but then we had stippled the seam sealer on them first

New arrivals :

Wednesday - Appia 3rd series
Thursday - Moto Guzzi Ercole

Quite a week , Christmas and birthday in 48 hours .....

Will start a new thread for the Appia, but here are a couple of teasers. Very sound, will need one 2"x2" patch on the floors and that is all !
Bit of work on one outer sill, bottom of 2 doors and the rear valance, so really not too bad. The front R wing has been crumpled ,but straightened and just needs a coat of filler. The Engine appears to be seized, but has been running recently, so Redex or similar for a few days and see what happens. I think I will take it out anyway as a practice for the furgoncino. Already, the 3rd series has answered some of the rebuild riddle for the van because they are both LHD

I bought a lovely interior from Ben Courage because the seats were missing - thanks Ben !

The Ercole, I will put a couple of pictures up, but will probably do a blog-thing on our wine website since it isn't a Lancia !

David, not much chance of that !
P, will start new thread under a pseudonym because planning to do a "quick and dirty" - where have we heard that before ? Restoration creep ......

Another look/think does suggest that I whip the engine/box out to see how it all works. I can see how the timing is set up etc

Seeing the selection of Lancias lined up in your garage Simon reminds me of a production line, albeit slow moving and infinitely more difficult.

What a lovely mini-fleet you'll soon have. So where you looking for the Appia, where did you find it, fill us in; because the hunt is sometimes the most enjoyable aspect!

To answer my own question about timing the distributor drive.

With the engine at TDC on #1 cyl, the offset for the dizzy drive slot is to the right of centre, when the slot is pointing at the rearmost cylinder.

This means that the wires and condensor are accessible and do not block the adjustment - I once had an R4 with the drive in the wrong place, so the engine ran, but it was a pain to adjust because the condensor jammed against the block and didn't allow easy adjustment
