Tipo update

Well after not doing much on the Teapot for a while I've finally got the welding and engine mounting done!
The MOT is due on the 15th May so hopefully everything will be OK now.

Re: Tipo update

Post a list of the things you need to do to the car...

You've mentioned the seats and parcel shelf, I may be able to help out with those as I've got a parcel shelf somewhere and a decent 5-door interior and bits and pieces in your colour. Plus those cool Italian Fenner speakers. And I might do a deal on my 14" Brava alloys with Goodyear Vector tyres that I use for our brutal winters!

I'll have a dig and post stuff in the classifieds.

The only problem is that I'm right across the M62 from Hull, just over the Mersey from Liverpool.

If you came over to collect we could meet up with Camo.

Re: Tipo update

Sounds like a plan!!!
Car is playing up at the moment, got a slight juddering when going slow (20-30mph),
put some new spark plugs in it but it's still doing it.
I've got it booked in for Monday 9th for MOT so I'll ask him to have a look when he's there. Hopefully it will just be stupid like plug leads, roter arm etc.
Still using it as not keen on driving the wife's mini!!

So, for now I'm back in the Nemo.

Re: Tipo update

I know what you mean Camo, I'm having juddering issues now with mine after getting a load of work done on it.
Best thing for these old Fiat's is to use them and abuse them and you don't have any problems! LOL
Mine was running great before I got the work done!!!

I've spent too much on my teapot to sell now, I got rid of my Lancia and managed to pick up a BMW Mini for the wife which keeps her happy.

Still doing my Lambretta up and DIY around the house!
No rest for the wicked.

Re: Tipo update

@puntofan01 - the car itself is fine...but the exhaust is loose AGAIN and my mechanic mate can't seem to get it permanently fixed and the new clutch is leaking oil. Everything that hasn't been fixed (as with @Bobbylad) is perfectly fine. I'm getting annoyed...don't want my beautiful Tipo to sound like a shed. Grrr

That exhaust problems sounds unreasonable.
Ask your "mechanic mate" to try harder.
As for the clutch, where is it leaking oil?
Clutches don't have oil.

Re: Tipo update

Sorry, I meant fluid, not oil. It's due an inspection to find out why.

I agree about the exhaust issues. Not best pleased.
