Re: A source for connecting rod bolts?

Might as well be ARP at that rate.
Or good used from another motor. They tend to hold up well in my experience.

Re: Follow along as I build a 79 Spider

Perfect! Machine work isn't always as costly as people imagine. Its nice to start off with things right sometimes. He can also look at your aux. shaft if you like. Btw its better to grind down the eccentric lobe than lop off the end of the shaft. I once had a spider modded that way, which caused exc...

Re: Relay wiring madness

Funny how no one ever wanted any X I had around here. My wife hated that scorpion but loves my spiders. I tried to explain the superior mid engine design but was met with a blank stare and “I don’t even know why you bought that thing “ [/quote] I had the same thing. Then I let her drive it. Passing...

Re: Relay wiring madness

Well as long as you have all those wire out of the way, its a great time to weld in the new floors (or patches) and not have to worry about frying them. ;)

Re: Oh crap, not againg, X murder times 2

I believe so. At least though, then your insurance company and the offending one will get together and discuss the value and the difference, rather than you having to do it all.

Re: Oh crap, not againg, X murder times 2

OUch! Sorry. I would rather try to replace a GTI, or any late model car, than justify all the work that goes into a classic Fiat to a modern insurance company. You may want to investigate Hagerty or some other classic agreed value insurance.

Re: Bubba was here!!

If your interest is Hill climb, lower gearing would be good. The AT in the Fiat can be good for drag strip, etc especially with the lower rear end but is not so good for road course. A lot of people like the taller gearing of the AT rear end because it drops the revs on the freeway. This works well ...

Re: Lancia wheels

These look like the Beta 14" x 5.5 wheels. The gold ones look like the special edition version (painted to match the JPS livery on that car). They're Front wheel drive wheels. You will need spacer to run on the RWD cars. There was a RWD version that came on later Scorpions in Europe but that would b...
