Re: Sticking Clutch Pedal

By this you mean, I should feel the bite of the clutch in about 1 inch of travel, correct? Honestly the clutch pedal feels much stiffer than the break or gas, is that not normal? It's not difficult to press, but it does take noticeably more pressure. Yes, correct. And that is normal. And if the ped...

Re: Sticking Clutch Pedal

You can lube the cable too.
Although that may not be your problem, it can't hurt

Re: What blue is this?

It's close to the Fiat color usually used on earlier spiders, French Blue.
It looks to have a little more turquoise and be a little brighter than the stock color tho...

Re: Fiat 124 Sedan rack and pinion kit.

Re: Modern computer based diagnostics

My neighbor has the slightly fancier electronic box to check codes on the modern cars. The cheap ones they use at the parts store usually just give the code.

I have gotten conflicting specs for whether or not early US 1608cc cars got some of these bits. I believe later 1608cc US cars got cams mor...
