Re: Bleeding Brakes

Toby, I probably was using the wrong terminology - all brake calipers at 2 Litre Dinos have air bleeding valves. ("Air nipple" is probably not a correct term, at all. But, in Swedish, it is called just that - "luftnippel" !) Moose21 - After having looked at pictures of the master brake cylinder, I a...

Re: Bleeding Brakes

The 2 Litre Dinos´ front calipers only have one air nipple each side, not two, as on 2,4 Litre Dinos. Many years ago, I tried using silicone-based brake fluid (CARTEL), and it was a complete disaster! It gave a brake pedal sinking into the floor mats before any braking power applied, and I bled and ...

Re: Questions about Fiat Dino Spider first series

This is very interesting, alfredhamstra! In my earlier debating this subject, I displayed an engine bay picture from my Fiat Dino Spider Owners Manual in German, printed in December 1967. I then mentioned some of the pics are showing a "late" 2 Litre Spider with the wooden dash, but some pics seem c...

Re: Dinoplex quick test: How?

As far as my own experience of the Dinoplex AEC 101 goes - yes, it can give a spark strong enough to keep your Dino running, but still deliver a weaker spark than it was designed to do. Remember these Dinoplexes are more or less 50 years old, and the components involved may have aged, and lost their...

Re: Dinoplex quick test: How?

There is a way making a simple test of the Dinoplex: 1. Disconnect the black wire from the distributor points connector, coming from the "D" connector at the ignition coil. 2. Disconnect the HT cable between the ignition coil and the distributor cap, at the distributor cap end. 3. Connect a suitible...

Re: Buying parts from Garda Ricambi in Italy

Scalino, I have tried the PEC mail address too, but that is not working at all. PEC seems to be a certification system, sending messages by a third, neutral party. As far as I understand, it is only working in Italy. My first e-mails to them was written in english, later I tried sending computer- tr...

Buying parts from Garda Ricambi in Italy

Any member of the Forum having bought something from Gardaricambi.com in Italy lately? I am asking, because I have tried emailing this Company several times, without getting any response at all - which is a pity, because they seem to have some good stuff... (I have been using their email address: in...

Re: Understanding the vacuum system

Maduno, if you search for an old post: "Electrical problem, fuse keeps blowing" by "sveckan" 15 September 2014, you will find all about the safety switch no 75 ! Please note, when I refer to the safety switch as "no 73", I found that info in the 2,4 Spider Electric diagram. The 2,4 Coupe Electric di...

Re: Understanding the vacuum system

Maduno, you are absolutely right! When looking at page G1.03 there is no trace of any oil lines - probably because they are shown at page A3.01 !! I owned a 2,4 Dino Coupe for 10 years in the eighties´, and once had a vacuum leaking problem with the servo pump system, but - obviously - didn´t rememb...
