Re: John Dragon Man's 4x4 Sisley

You will be very very lucky to get a lock SET. The one key panda is a rare thing. Most people have at least two keys or three. Some have four. Aim for boot and doors on one key, ign on one and fuel on one. That way you will prob get a an offer.

Re: John Dragon Man's 4x4 Sisley

Ricambio still have them and at a decent price too: http://www.ricambio.co.uk/69-fiat/60...-classic-panda

You won't get a set including a fuel cap on the same set John, as the cars didn't come with a locking flap in the first place - mine still doesn't have a locking flap.

Hope this helps!

Re: John Dragon Man's 4x4 Sisley

I think all pandas had two keys (except maybe the later ones with the flap). Fuel cap is a totally different type of key compared to doors/ignition.
What's the problem with the locks currently fitted anyway? I personally would not bother, or certainly not a priority, if they are working correctly.

Its strange, pre injection were all suppose to have a seperate key for the doors to ignition or something iirc (in the hand book), my Sisley did, but my 750L and all the Selecta's have had one key for all except the filler cap.

its in the car now! took me till half two in the morning but its in the car and filled with oil! left a bit of cardboard under the gearbox to see if i get any troll leakage from the CV boots but i think it will be good.

video of it:
ill leave my netbook uploading the video over night so should be done in a few hours time.

@nitro_warrior you want my old diff? its in remarkable condition.. not a chip on it, i am quite shocked.

as for me. bed time!

Re: John Dragon Man's 4x4 Sisley

Flippin eck John!

You have done more to your Sisley in the short time you have had it than I have done to mine in the last 7 months of it sitting on axle stands.

Do you want to come to Chesterfield when you get bored in 1 days time when you have finished yours?

You are more than welcome........and the rust ain't as bad as yours.

Dave

Re: John Dragon Man's 4x4 Sisley

hahaha sure, when i am on the road and yon panda car is all MOTed and running good i can pop up no problem!

i am having issues with idling :/ if i leave it to idle for a while it eventualy stalls i am wondering if i upset something when i took all the carb to bits. adjusting the mixture screw does nothing :/

in other news...
i shouldn't.. but ive got my eye on a real nice Selecta.. old woman has it and she only uses it on sundays to go to church in but she is on about giving up driving as she cant see a thing, poor lass.

one owner from new.. 32000 miles, and not really a spot of rust on it.. not even the doors :O i think its a fuel injected one too..
and the icing on the cake.. because i do some gardening and computer maintenance for her and the fact that i am a "nice young lad" she has told me that i can have it >_< i was like omfgwtfffff!!!! free non rusy panda selecta?
she wants the garage taking down and a small natural pond putting in its place. so wants the car gone.

time will tell with it.. i really need to sell the PiNK Cinq lol

Hi Dragonman

Congratulations on the speed of your progress! I can sympathise with the "Son of a female dog" inboard driveshaft gator. I was changing the clutch on my Y10 at the weekend and had exactly the same problems. Only goes on one way round, fiddly little bolts that wont seat or screw home properley. Couldn't understand why it was being such a pain. Glad its not just me.

Did you sort the ignition module (that square box) in the end? That's usually prime suspect for any stalling/cutting out/dodgy spark/rough running/general world strife with the 4x4. Even a new one can be faulty as I found to my cost - both in money and sanity terms!! I believe it controls all the sparking & those cassette points, so if it goes awol the car's never going to run properly & will eventually stop completely (with a loud bang & cloud of smoke in my case ). It usually gets worse as the module box gets warm in my experience - they do get very hot even when working correctly, certainly hot enough to burn you if you're particularly stupid

Dodgy fuel pump is quite common too, and could cause something similar.
