Re: The Second Restoration of a Spider

--Extremely nice job Mike! That carpet is really nice, and I particularly like the way you incorporated it into the kick panels on the door cards! Very nice job on the two tone upholstery, and I think the French seams (double top stitching) really compliment the job! Well done Mike!

Re: Pininfarina builds their own supercar

--Interesting John! Good news and bad news! --The good news: beginning in 2020, is that Pininfarina will build their own car. The bad news (at least for me): the car will be an electric car. The good news (if their is any for an electric car) is that the motor will be based on their Formula E motor,...

--Ok Mark, I'll see what I can rustle up. I'm sure I have one stashed somewhere. How about shooting your mailing address to my email: Jfscurria@msn.com

Re: 124 Jack

--Mark, just to be clear, where exactly are you located? Looks like you may be in France with zip code 95862? If so, it might be easier to locate a jack on the European continent? I think the scissors jack used by the 124 Spider is likely common to a number of other Fiats as well?

Anyone have an extra jack from a 124 they can spare? All I have is the handle.
Thanks, Mark

--Hi Mark. Yes a beautiful collection!

--I'm sure I have spare 124 jacks. I can send you one, if you like. How about you just pay shipping?

Re: 124 Spider clutches

--Here is a pic of the hole that I drill in the pedal assembly housing to make installing the clutch pedal assist-spring and hook easier. This spring is sometimes referenced in service manuals as the clutch pedal "return" spring, but it is not a return spring. Note that the hole I drill is highlight...

Re: 124 Spider clutches

(1) My Spider maybe ready for a new clutch cable. I don't know the frequency of how long a clutch cable is supposed to last but from from my experience, the cable eventually cuts a notch through the plastic liner at the pedal end and rubs against the spiral wound sheath causing friction. It also cr...

--Richard, I see the VA tag....where are you located?

--Very clean! I particularly like the bumper opening delete. What is the fender-badge behind the front wheels? Very nice job!

Re: Hydraulic Handbrake

-I think the logic is, no matter facing up hill or down, if the wheels face the curb the car will roll into the curb if parking brake or transmission egagement is lost.

Re: Engine Shield

--Ooooh Dave, Harbor Freight electric tools (Chicago brand) not recommended IMHO. I've seen them fail after a single use. Spend another $50 bucks and get a DeWalt grinder/cutoff tool. It will last a lifetime for all but the heaviest users.
