Re: 124 1800 Single-Plane Intake Manifold

Will it work on a 1600 engine as well?

Sidemarker lights: 1972 124 Coupe

Complete set of side marker lights from my 1972 Coupe. I decided at the very last minute to have the body shop fill in the four side marker rectangular holes of my coupe prior to painting and thus I have two red (rear) and two amber (front) complete (reflectors/metal/rubber) units left over sitting ...

Re: no park lights

Thank you to all who have responded. Although I'm not satisfied yet with the results thus far, I am understanding the issues better and feel I have a good chance to get things working properly. As additional help I'd like to ask if the 1970 124 Coupe electrical diagram found here on the Library site...

Re: no park lights

Thank you for the response. Very interesting that both circuits are on the same fuse, this may simplify or complicate matters while narrowing it down. However, I have checked and rechecked all fuses and changed from aluminum to copper to no avail. Installed additional grounds at both ends of the car...

no park lights

Cannot get the park lights to work on my '72 Coupe with the dash (rocker) light switch in the middle position and the key off. Checked fuses and as many connectors as I can think of. All four (front and rear) do light up when either the brights or the low beams are on (dash switch in the full on pos...

Re: 1972 Sport Coupe owner's manual

124 coupe rear shock replacement

Just got a set of shocks for my 72 124 coupe and after looking at the rears, I'm puzzled as to how to go about replacing them. I'm used to removing them from the bottom on my other cars but it doesn't look possible here. What am I not seeing? Can some one offer a hint or some tips as to how they did...

1972 124 Coupe tire size

My 1972 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe was originally equipped with steel wheels and tires sized 165 SR 13. It's time for me to buy new tires and I want to go back to a size as close to original as possible in order to retain accurate speedometer readings and to replicate original braking, handling and corner...

Re: seat angle knobs

Thank you all who chimed in--about the seat back adjusting knobs LOL. Got it done. The car was delivered to me from the painting shop yesterday so as I reassemble I'm sure I'll need your expert help from time to time.

seat angle knobs

I'm trying to figure out how to remove the large (~3" diameter) round adjusting knobs that control the reclining angle on my 1972 124 Coupe front seats. Just bought new plastic mechanism covers from AR and the knobs have to be removed to fit the new covers. These large plastic round knobs--indented ...
