Mark : here's one that comes to mind.: Not really a swap but a non-logical place to look
The AC/Heater control on the Lancia beta and Scorpion are readily avaiable from Chrysler Corporation, they are a genuine MOPAR Product :)
Got mine NEW in a MOPAR boc for about $50.00 a couple year ago, I am sure we could find the MOPAR number somewhere, I'll look around.

Better Brake Pads

Post by E Prod Racer » Mon Mar 05, 2007 4:04 pm

The HAWK Brake #HB158 pads (a Mazda RX-7 rear pad) fit the Front Stock Calipers. A good street/track grade is the HPS #HB158F.515 pads. Retain the locating tabs on the back of these pads, and they can be moved to the rear calipers when they have worn to 50% thickness. These pads are also available as the HP+ grade for more aggressive driving, and HAWK Blue grade for racing. Any of these 3 grades are a great improvement over stock pads, or Axxis pads.

MAC has the HPS grade in stock.

Fonzy,
I'm not sure. If I remember, my 128SL I had had the same brakes as a 124, and I believe that an X1/9 also has the same brakes - not sure about the 850. Find out if there is a cross to the 124, and if so, yes.

Well done Kimu

Post by Marc » Sat Aug 04, 2007 7:50 am

Well Done!!! only issue is with the Holley...it fits but is not a bolt on swap.There are some linkage and hose issues if your cars stock,can it be done? yes,but be aware of the carbs complexity as compared to stock fiat webers.The holleys are liscened by weber.A new 32/36 dfev is still the way to go.I only want to point this out for people who are not hardcore Fiatisti .If you want to try it and need help anyone,leave a thread and we will get you started online so the rest of our club members will have a reference for the swap.

GREETINGS!
and AHOY!

GIUBO PARTS INTERCHANGE.
This be not new, but NOW.
Our community continues to grow. Folks leave. Folks join. As such, it's OF INTEREST TO MANY.

A POLYURETHANE GIUBO is available.
Some New Jersey outfit called OPMD.Com has a $100 price, but an old ad
(It's the civilian excuse for a date: 05/09/07, Sept or May 2007?)
An Open Mind Associates, Inc - Tel: 973-514-1306 - Fax: 1-973-457-5691
Email: sales@opmd.com - Tel(UK): 01494-416286

However,
This is the BMW giubo, found after much searchin' for ye olde thread. It bears
BMW part #26-11-1-107-832
It be a mere $30 from PELICAN PARTS.
http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/sma ... 7-832-M200
Unlike the famous Fiat Guarentee (If it breaks, you get both parts.),
It be havin' a 12 Month/12,000 Mile BMW Warranty!

So there it be. Is this the correct giubo?
Thanks, folk.
Clear sailin',
