i went for lesjofors. as OEM Replacement. price point is "about right" and theyre a subsiduary of ZF. (ftr... Boge, TRW, Sachs and Wabco are under the ZF Umbrella)
Yet to actually get them installed and ran, but i have previous experience with Lesjofors on our old 159 and they did really well.

Evening all,
I have a set of (7Jx17 H2-41) OEM Speedline wheels from an early 2000s Stilo in the garage. Decent enough tyres if almost at the end of their 10yr life span, currently wrapped in 215/45r17 rubber
Aside from the obvious speedo mismatch which can be almost eliminated by dropping to a 35/40 section in the future what are the chances of them fitting and not rubbing anywhere as a straight replacement for the coupe OEM wheels (6,5Jx15 H2-40)...

also what is the H2 in the sizing? Never had to deal with non-oem wheels.

im presuming the 1mm difference in off set wont make a difference, but im guessing the 12-13mm differece in rim width along with the added tyre size may cause issues.
if so would i be looking at a 10mm spacer set? of so what kind of handling differences should i be aware of?

It is usually a good day out, so I have booked my ticket. Anyone else fancy it?

Here's a link to Brooklands Museum site where you can buy your advance tickets.

Thats the plan, as i find stuff, get it modelled & printed.

If it's not too complicated a shape then it might just need digitising?

It may be pertinent to grab PCB microbutton depth from case too, helps with allowing it to "click" properly when pressed. ideally would need PCB Pics with a measurement reference, and as many other measurements and pics as possible.

weee'll i didnt get round to lifting the rear so thats one for tomorrow...
in the mean time... here you go!

found a few things worth noting, with the front ARB Mounts, namely the brakets, bolt at 2 different heights, and there is also a plate INSIDE the subframe that you have to remember to refit on installation. i only knew it was there because i fully removed the subframe and the drivers side one was rattling about. chinny what else... parts are super difficult to get hold of next day (read "next week") if not imposible. little bit sad i cant build the front end too much just yet. because im waiting on gearbag bits from Italy to turn up. not holding out hope of them being close this week but a man can hope. ordered them 2 weeks ago.

The round one fits into a temp sensor which is located in the radiator just above the bottom pipe, second one could be an a/c pressure switch or bonnet switch, judge by the cable length it's location.

Or if you’re keen you can come when it’s up and running



Aircon really is a must for me. its a shame as a 6 speed is always a bonus.

I have loctite 510, I used it for the shells on the head as per the manual,
but I don't think it's ideal for this.
Thanks for the 567 advice

Hi, can you tell me how much adjustment is needed to get the ground clearance to be the same height as the original?
Is it difficult to reach later to adjust the rear shocks once they are installed?

Hello Pete.
We are staying in a gite in Le Bugue, market town on the Vezere, south of Perigeux.
We've been coming here for 15 odd years and enjoy mixing with the French.
A red coupe used to live in one of the little towns towards Bergerac.
We've got a Fiat 500 hire car.

Speak with Bremsen Technic in North Yorkshire - Steve Liversedge was the guy I dealt with, but that was quite a few years ago. 01748 830909

EDIT - have a look at the sticky I wrote fifteen (!!) years ago about the Pagid range -

EDIT #2 - and also this thread -

Looking at the Pagid Racing website they seem to have renamed their pads. The RS29 pads you installed are now called RSL29.

There is no RS4.2 listed, but maybe the RS42 is the replacement?

I believe the Fiat Doblo has the wider pullies to accommodate the wider belt, but the question is, why? I run 400bhp on a standard Gates belt without issue as do many other cars. Cambelts are not a weak point with this engine, so you could save yourself the money and stick with the standard pullies.

I don't know if that existed in the UK too. They have an antenna on the roof of the vehicle. These could be replaced.
If you still have some time, I'll get an amplifier and see if I can modify it.
But the reception will never be as good as in a modern car. There are 3 or even 4 antennas installed here between which the radio is switched.

Sure, would be great. I am not in a hurry.
I am in NL btw. My coupes don’t have GSM preparation nor the extra motorized antenna on the left-rear.
