Ahhh, A sign of relief. Thanks for the info. Need your expertise in finding Aluminium tail lights for my car (Select type or the delight type any thing will do).

Karthik bhai can you be specific as to what parts are you referring to. If its about the recent haul then i got all light fittings (interior & exterior) for my S1. Do you want a pic of the same. Or is it about the parts procured from scrapyard?

Can anyone identify as to which car do these sunvisors belong. I am not able to identify them. Do they belong to any model Fiat.

One of our FCB member has a brand new Webber carburetor of FIAT for sale. Its a 'new' one and not a used carb.

Asking price is 4k.

Is it worth?

The carb for my 62 FIAT 1100 WBF-1, seems to be all worn out and Bumpu is looking for a good used one here in Calcutta were Fiats have almost gone like the DoDo bird.

Would this Webber Carb be suitable for my car. Bumpu did a complete rebuild of the engine and put on a later model head with a free flow exhaust system. It has made such an improvement!

New gen speedo with clock. Actually didn't have anything to do so opened it up and cleaned inside out.

Dear Samsag12 - that cluster was officially known as "konkorde" (with a "k") and was made by yenkay. I am the designer of that great degassing tank. I have it on all my restored fiats. See an original Standard 2000. I have copied it from there. .

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Thanks a lot sir for commenting on the pics. Regarding the meter i didn't knew that its name was Konkorde. There was one piece and had the inscription Konkorde instead of PAL on the face of the meter and i thought its some local one so picked the other one(same posted above). The Konkorde one was looking pretty decent with about 20K on the odo compared to the other one which i picked up (odo 70k) Guess i will exchange with the other one as this one has faded needles and scratched glass.
Is there any way to check the meter and its led lights without fitting it on the car. I have supplied 12v power to each socket pin but apart from the parking brake warning light and meter's back light nothing seems to work. Do shed some light on this.

PS: i think this is the tank you are talking about Dhabhar sir.

Hi Sagar,
It is easy to check the LEDs on the instrument cluster. You have to connect the -ve to any metallic part on the back side of the cluster. Probably the screws on the back side would be the best place. Now connect the +ve of battery to one pin after the other. Be warned as the connector also has the ground terminal, so you might see a spark while it is shorted with the -ve. Tests pin after pin by momentarily connecting and checking for the LED to glow. If things seems ok, then you may keep it longer and admire it. While you had opened the cluster for cleaning, you could have tested the clock in isolation.
Behram Sir,
Please let me know how the instrument cluster in my 1995 AC 118NE could be accessed. I had a tough time in replacing the illumination lamps in the cluster. Once my hand got stuck in between .

Hi All!

Do we have 118 NE Intruction book and service manual in soft copy at any link / website? Request all for sharing the link.

@Ilangop: After a lot of discussion with Father, I have finally decided not to pick that Vijay. If anyone is intrested, it would be a very good buy. Sorry for all the time and trouble I caused you for this. :(

Cheers!

Ilango thanks for the solution to check the meter. I have followed the same method but apart from a couple of lights nothing came alive. So i guess the meter is not functioning and will need to be changed.
I checked the clock in isolation when i took the meter apart and it was working fine so no issues with that. Just the leds aren't working.

Further contribution from my side.

Recently got hold of this hard to find grill which was incidentally fitted on the PP S1. Also got hold of many original S1 parts & salvaged the original upholstery(which surprisingly was in good condition) from the car.

The grill had some visible damage, can be seen in the last 2 pics, which i remodeled using epoxy compound and the finish is yet to be finalized.

Recently located a TVS autolec water pump assembly in a shop. Asking price is 550Rs. Don't have any immediate requirement for the same but was eager to know whats the status of its availability and should i pick it up or not.
I hope that Padmini and S1 share the same water pump design without any alteration.
