Re: Fiat 900t/e

hey kmorganx, welcome to the select club of fiat 900 van owners, as you are probably aware by now fiat= fix it again tomorrow, ive been restoring my wife lill 900t for a year now, and she has been 1 step forward and 2 back most of the time, everything from starter motor knackered to brake master cylinder rebuilding, im now facing the final hurdle of sorting the last part of the mistifying electrics known as the hazard warning light system, as simple as it might seem , the haynes manual says it s only 5 wire but our one has 9 wires and a leak to earth somewhere which flattens the battery atm, so im going to put a seperate switch inline to isolate it when the hazards are not required

anything technical i can help with im more than happy to try , or look up spanner dude he seem to be the bees knees in the tech department here

later

tim

Re: Fiat 900t/e

Hi Guys, I just registered as i have just bought a 900e pandora from ebay, i hope its not too bad as only my 2nd project. I have a lovely 126 aircooled too but that is on ebay unfortunately to pay for restoring the 900e.
I just hope that when the van arrives its not a pile of ...... you pay ya money you take ya chances
Gotta get it from south wales to staffs which is costing 180 quid, then where to start? lol
I hope to find tips and new friends on here owning the same kinda vehicle.

Re: Fiat 900t/e

Welcome chaps,

you need to possess not inconsiderable testicular fortitude to take on the restoration of something that has such scant spares support. But there are ways and means.

I hope you enjoy your new adventure.

Cheers,
Stuart

Re: Fiat 900t/e

hey, ive just got my 1985 900E Amigo as my first car a week ago, but mine doesn't really need restoring that much as it is already in quite good shape. As for parts I got a few bits from Ricambio's website the other day as they seem to have quite alot of mechanical parts for the 900's.

BTW, I think the thread owner has recently sold her 900 as I saw someone with the same username sell one on ebay the other day.

I've attached some pics of my camper if any one's interested :
