In Mumbai it is 150. I guess it's OK.

Best regards,

@DHABHAR.BEHRAM thanks again for the help. Will think of buying it. The glass is of a very good condition padmini scrapped yesterday. Even the door and other panels were in original upholstery held up by clamps. Not a sign of rust anywhere. Know this as i myself folded the sleeves & got down with a screwdriver to unscrew some parts.
BTW what type of manual was Arun bhai talking of. Was it the owners manual or repairs manual?? I only have the owner's manual in orange shade but currently its misplaced. ASA i find it will post the soft copy to you Karthik bhai.

Sir how can the tranny be removed without engine removal as it is attached behind the engine and mounted on the chassis. The mechanic told you the right thing. Am not a fiat guru but know some common things.

It can be removed. I had the clutch plate replaced in my 118 NE without getting the engine out of the engine bay. No idea about the PP.

The transmission can be easily be removed without removing the engine. This is a very basic procedure and is followed during the clutch/pressure plate replacement. Such lack of knowledge from the mechanics side is termed as BMR ie."Basic mein rada" (reference from BD Dictionary). With such BMR, I doubt the competency of the mechanic to handle the gearbox issues since the gear box is compared to the Pandoras box and is best left to the experts.

Procedure:
1. detach prop. shaft from oth ends
2. disconnect shifter rods (in case of column shift)(i have worked on column shift fiat only and not on floor shift)
3. remove cross member below gearbox and disconnect reverse lighting switch
4. keep some support below gearbox and remove all mounting bolts.
5. pull out the gearbox away from engine and and you are done.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Oh didn't knew that. But this way of tranny removal takes lesser time than opening engine or not?

Its the fastest way. Only thing is you need to get under the car and do all things and pull out the gearbox. If you are interested in unmounting the engine do as follows:

1. DIsconnect cables going to alternator and earthng cable.
2. remove air filter and other stuff to make working easier
3. Unmount the engine
4. disconnect prop. shaft and remove cross member below gear box.
5. remove radiator and engine fan
6. take pulley n hook.
7. tie the engine to hook and then you can remove engne and gearbox together.
8. Then you can transfer engine and gearbox together on some bench and work comfortably on both.

This procedure is advisable if you want to work on engine and gearbox both. But to remove gearbox only, previous method is best. Opting to second method will be like using battle tank to kill the rat.

I need parts for a re-bore job.
I feel the fourth groove would in fact help in reducing oil consumption and also would provide required compression. I remember in the 90s for Ambys this was preferred and the 4th groove used to be below the piston pinor gudgeon pin which in the long run would reduce wear due to piston skirt vibrations.
