Re: Wiper motor wiring help and advice please

In 71 they went to the 2 position knob (slow and very slow speed :-) and 6 wire motor. I mostly have experience with the 6 wire system. My question is if early cars used a rheostat to control wiper speed was the steering column wiper switch 2 position "off-on" and not 3 position "off- delay- on" li...

Re: Rough Idle, low power, and engine dies at stoplights

The Marelli electronic distributor is actually a mechanical/electronic hybrid. One thing I noticed is the original Marelli pick ups have a blue wire and a black wire at the connector and a red wire and black wire at the pick up. The red and black wires are very flexible with a soft rubber like insu...

Re: Double Relay 1981 Fiat Spider

The lamp did not light and the meter register 0 volts. I have trouble seeing the connector pin numbers however it looks like your tests were made using terminal 85 in the white wire connector. This terminal connects to the ECU connector pin 28. The ECU completes the ground connection for the double...

Tomorrow, I will replace both sensors with new units using teflon tape to seal the threads.
The sensors require a good electrical connection to the head in order to function properly. Teflon tape could cause a problem here.

Re: Small electrical relay?

The electrical terminals on the relay do not look Fiat. I would suspect it is part of the car alarm system.

Re: Coolant Temp Sensor causing car to die out

A closer look at your engine photo shows the coolant temperature sensor mounted in the top of the coolant "T". This raises the question is your coolant "T" installed up side down or has someone swapped the positions of the bleed plug with the coolant temperature sensor. The Coolant "T" must be insta...

Re: Coolant Temp Sensor causing car to die out

Having trouble posting today The butt connectors splices in the temperature sensors wires look like they could be heat shrink solder type. Over the years I have found this type of connector the source of intermittent connections. Although the solder appears to have melted it has not bonded to the wi...

Re: Steering stiffener

Looking at the photo I don't see any threads sticking through the nut where the bracket attaches to the existing top crossmember bolt. I would replace this bolt with one about 1/2" (12mm) longer. It would be nice to see at least 3 treads showing through the nut. Ralph maybe the Lada steering box is ...
