Re: Swapping rear ends

James The spider volumex rear end was a variant of the 132 rear end. The 132 rear end is a lot like the 131 I have a 132 diff I converted (well in the process - still need to weld the relocated brackets you mentioned) of converting for my volumex project. One of the things I discovered is that the 1...

Re: Race Cars Wanted for Fiat Freakout 2019!

Do rally cars count ?

If I can get the car finished in time I will bring my integrale rally car, trailered of course.

Re: Follow along as I build a 79 Spider

Any thoughts on converting to 12x1.5 studs while you are at it ? I'm into rallying and we're often in a hurry when changing wheels and I'm told that the M12x1.25 fine thread is easier to cross-thread than M12x1.5 so lots of teams use the studs with M12x1.25 screwed into the hub and M12x1.5 and appro...

Re: 85.5 spider engine color?

I'm 99.9% sure that the block on my 85.5 Spider volumex was gray just like any other 124 block I've seen

Even my integrale blocks have been gray

Re: Daydreaming a 2 litre

Fiatrn @cstorry - since Deltas aren't common here, I've never had the chance to ride in one that has had the balancers removed. On Lancisti.net I've read some opinions on them being just as smooth. Where are you that you have such access to Deltas? Want to send me a long block? Ha! I live near Ottaw...

Re: Daydreaming a 2 litre

Interesting how perspectives differ Here's my little collection of balance shafts removed from my integrales ! http://pics.forzavx.com/balanceshaft.jpg My motivation was to go for wider cambelt after suffering a piston to valve collision (approximately 25k km on belt). The belt did not break just sh...

Re: Daydreaming a 2 litre

I've got a couple Lancia integrale engines. Why do you think they are more turbo-able than the "vintage" twincam engines ? Sure the integrale's came with turbos but they are also transverse mounted. Unlike the "vintage" engines which were used in a myriad of longitudinal and transverse mountings I a...

Re: Late (Pininfarina) Spider Seat Questions

I thought they were the same - Euro model Pinin Spider 2000 (or whatever their official name was after 1982) and the Alfa (at least of the North American models) from the 83-85 era. I think the Alfa stiching pattern on the covering was slightly different but the seat bases, controls and seat belt ho...
