Re: Quickee- F.I. Spider - What Turns the fuel Pump on?

Yep - the switch inside the AFM is activated by a small arm that hangs off the wiper that tracks with the door. "People" have a habit of bending that arm outwards slightly so that the switch is permanently closed and thus the fuel pump turns on when the ignition is turned on. The way it's supposed t...

Re: For Sale: 124 Sedan/Special wheel arch extensions

Racing style extensions - not patch panels

Apologies for lack of clarity!

I appreciate there’s a fairly limited set of people
Interested in these! Think they fit the wagon too though (for an extra 2 people in the market.... ;))

For Sale: Emissions Gear

Hi all, I've got the emissions gear off of two cars sitting in a big box gathering dust. They've literally been pulled straight off of perfectly good running cars. Includes air pump, injectors, cam covers, assorted corroded pipes, hoses, air filter housings, carburetors etc. I have no intention of l...

For Sale: 124 Sedan/Special wheel arch extensions

Hey All -

Contrary to my usual hoarding practices, I've got a set of four wheel arch extensions for the 124 Sedan/Special that I'm never going to fit. Suspect they'll fit the wagon too. If anyone wants them, please let me know.

Re: 1973 Fiat 124 CC Sports Coupe wiring diagrams

Hey - I know the ‘72 Coupe was a five wire motor (having just sorted one). Is the CC coupe a 6 across all years?

Never seemed to be a problem tbh.... could always make a branching unit if you’re too concerned :)

Re: Diving into dual IDFs for the first time..

Suspect your rear carb is a model 15 (at least it should be!). The original approach for vapors was a flat piece of metal with a nipple in the middle. The flat piece laid against the air filter on the outside of the rear carb, and was sandwiched between the top and bottom plates. I check a couple of...

Re: Diving into dual IDFs for the first time..

The original IDF 40s have the return line as a 45 degree T on the right hand side of the fuel fittings on the front carb (model 13?). I wouldn’t put a T in the middle - that was an early approach that suffered from the front carb leaning out under acceleration (a less than desireable situation!). Im...
