Castrol R is castor oil based and still available. According to the great wiki; Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis).

I am pretty sure it is still in common use in vintage racing circles.


This is the oil type used for the rear lever damper on the Ardea, Andrea

More miles and a few more details ....

Not everyone will like these, I have added the red stripes - but only sticky backed plastic ! Sorry photo of the front is a bit dark

She also has her new plates fitted

The army table/place settings (see previous post) have been added and finally I am working out how best to paint the "Lancia" script on the hubcaps. I have an old one to play with

Tomorrow - tighten head and check tappets etc

Still in mourning re JN - I was 10 in 1974 when he was at his peak , so I know what to do with sticky backed plastic and toilet roll tubes .....

Anyway, head torqued down, tappets reset, carb jets cleaned, brake reservoir replaced, new rocker covers fitted plus a few other details

As regards painting the hub caps, I suspect there is no substitute for a quiet evening, a small paint brush and a steady hand.

Like the stripes - like putting decals on a 1:1 scale model - suddenly it's finished and really looks the part. I've dithered over putting 'Torino' stripes over my Fulvia for about 5 years. I've recently read that 2 pack paint doesn't fade so wouldn't leave tell-tale marks. Is this true? I think Frank is right about the hubcaps. A good enamel and a piece of damp turpy rag to wipe off any excess. Is the painted part impressed in slightly or is the whole word flush?

Frank , I am sure you are right. Unfortunately I don't think I can get it done this week. Stan, I'm glad you like the stripes - I do too  so I will have to do them properly when I get back from the Sliding Pillar rally. Dog has told me how to do them correctly !!

Today I did one of the last jobs, and one I have been meaning to do for ages but have kept putting off.

I tried fitting the "bumper" a few weeks ago, but the brackets I made did not work because they were rigid 'T's and impossible to line up through the holes in the rear valence. So I made an articulated 'T' instead that has worked well, so all ready for the weekend !

How's that for timing? That's a great achievement. Have a safe and trouble-free run t'up North at the weekend.

Looks great with the rear 'bumper' finally in place, looking forward to seeing it at the SPR.
We have, even allowing for sight seeing detours, only about 275 miles to drive, you have over 600, so it should be well run in by the time you arrive. Hope it goes well. see you there. A.

I want to learn all about that rear bumper strip, I must remember to bring some material to measure it up!

Wish you a safe and troublefree trip Simon!

One more thing: everytime I see that beautifull Lancia sign hanging on your garage door, it makes me very nervous.  I would worry all the time about wind, or touching it with something while working or moving cars.  I recently laid hands on the very same, but will put it high up and very well attached!

A stupid question........but why is the Furgoncino quite so low geared? Is it connected to the weight it can carry? I always thought Appias generally were well suited to day to day travel ( but maybe not autostradas). It cant be anything to do with the body being significantly heavier than the standard saloons or can it?

Chris
Part of the answer is the diff ratio but also the gearboxes are quite different. Some of this may be offset by bigger wheels, but bottom line is that they are much lower geared (the ambulances more so) and are authorised to carry 940 kgs (furgoncino) or 1140 kg (camioncino)
I read somewhere that a second ser furgoncino can theoretically get to 105 kph at 4800 rpm - I won't be trying it !
