Hi, Welcome to the FF.

May help if people knew which country you're in and which parts you're looking for.

Dave.

Re: parts resourse

glad to be here. im in America and i need performance parts like carbs and heads and thinks of that nature or a recommendation on a good engine swap candidate (preferably carburated) that can work with the five speed

thank you again

Re: parts resourse

Not off the top of my head, but if you're thinking engine swap the best bets for engines available in the US are (A) chrysler turbo, or (B) Honda B16, B18, K20. People have done both of these. Matt actualy does the K20 swap for people. I believe you'll lose a portion of the rear trunk on some (all?) of the Honda swaps. Other swaps are possible with additional work.

Re: parts resourse

Almost a complete list of english language part suppliers, so you might want to check out:
http://www.alternativeautos.demon.co.uk (although site's been a bit static for a few years so don't get your hopes up on price/availability) and there's also:
http://www.eurosport-uk.net (good online ordering and will ship international).

Good luck with the engine swap

Re: parts resourse

Just got this message from a mate on the Fiat Coupe forum whose 'lost' his X today - if anyone is local and needs anything.......

X19 has today been scrapped (Gutted!) but the company that has got her is Morley Waste Traders (in Leeds or so I am lead to believe). Basically if you or the rest of the owners want any parts from a 1500 then give them a call. boot, engine cover and front bonnet all in VGC, all switches etc working, doors have seen better days....

Re: blank keys

hi, I got my keys cut at an old fashioned hardware store, however it wasn't a great success. The door key worked fine but the ignition key he had to fettle rather a lot, cutting the profile deeper by hand, even then it was very stiff in the ignition barrel. I suppose it is due to ware in the lock due to age. A little bit of lubrication using dry carbon (pencil lead) has helped things along. But I just keep using the key every so often and trying to easy it in the lock, i'm sure i'll get there in the end.

Re: blank keys

Some time ago, through a vendor on eBay, I had new keys cut by a fellow in Australia.

He did an awesome job as all I needed to provide was photos of my original key, and he was able to create new keys from the photos. They are newer style keys with the plastic head, and they work perfect, first time every time. (no fiddling to get it to turn)

I don't recall the vendors name, and I won't be able to research my archived e-mails as I'm presently working in Afghanistan, and won't be home for another 2 weeks. (28 Apr)

I'll monitor this post, and will reply with the info if you still need it.

Please PM me if I don't send the info by mid May.

Good luck,
