Re: Relay wiring madness

Funny how no one ever wanted any X I had around here. Found this out with the Scorpion, most women do not like wedge shape cars. They like the round shape of the spider with chrome accents. Shinny is good. My wife hated that scorpion but loves my spiders. I tried to explain the superior mid engine ...

Re: Relay wiring madness

I still need to try the set of those I picked up, thanks for the reminder!

On a 124 Spider, cooling could be a little bit of an issue, or perhaps modifying the headlight bucket for cooling could be the issue.

But, Carl, do you drive at night?

Re: What header is this?

anyone have a photos of a Kirk header? I had a Kirk 4-1 header on my old '74 124 Spider...similar, but built stout & collected to a 2" elbow.

Re: Relay wiring madness

is 3m grip tape a nice thing for this sort of thing? Seems like I recently bought a roll for this purpose, but I don't actually have long-term experience with it.

Re: Won't Shift

can you explain a bit further....you mean, you press the clutch & it still wont go into gear when running? Can you put the shift lever when the car is not running? Or are you saying the clutch is not releasing when the car is on its wheels? At first I read this to sound like the clutch 'frozen' to t...

Re: Is it unusual for Fiat exhausts to be in good shape?

I've taken apart a LOT of 124/2K spiders...albeit most of that "action" was now over 10 years ago...but manifolds always seemed stout (the lousy 4-1 style was more common), though usually with at least one broken stud. Downpipes I came across were usually in good shape also but often butchered at th...

Re: using a mechanical oil gauge

For my ‘79 X1/9 I got a set of 3 gauges that were unbranded but generally match the style. That car had a 2.75” mechanical gauge plumbed with copper on a custom center console panel (aka, old stop sign). The deal was it was a standard set of gauges, but you could request substitutions (for instance,...

Re: Do 124 Coupe wiper motors fit 124 Spiders?

and the Coupe wiper motors are sort of notoriously terrible, so by all accounts that is not a mix/match part you'd want to do anyway.

Re: 75 spider wiring diagram wanted

I'm sure you know there are many parts that are basically the same from start to finish of the 124 Spider production. If anything, I'd expect '75 to me most like '76 & '77 with the relay banks on the drivers inner fender...falling generally between the more modularized '78-up and the "wired by hand"...
