Question Glad to be here and HELP!

I imported my Fiat 500F over to the US and the RORO transporters abused the poor car.

The starter was burned out and now the starter cable has broken. I had the starter replaced but subsequently, the starter cable snapped.

I have purchased the new starter cable (for a old model 126, as I swapped the old 500 motor for the 650 of the 126) and the cable has arrived.

There are a lot of parts in the starter cable kit that I am not sure where they go. I cannot find any diagrams or sections in the workshop manual that covers how to install the starter cable. Does anyone have a description of what I should do to properly install the new starter cable?

many thanks

hi, and welcome to FF,

sounds as if the 126 wiring info is what you may need,
@gadge may have such info,

Does your new starter motor have a solenoid?

Sorry @Cheech67 I'm afraid im am of zero help to you. I don't have a diagram available online that I can post to you and my 126 has the later key operated starter so I'm not familiar with the pull starter system at all however there is a haynes manual available for the air cooled version - ebay has them for, like $1 and if your running a 126 650 engine then it may well be handy to have

Hope you sort it
