it was running just fine until suddemly one fine day there was a sudden drop in power...and when we opened the engine we found that cylinder 2 had vertical scars on it...made apparently due to lack of lubrication...god knows why this happened so suddenly...anyways....that car was only for the engine and nuin else...so there was nuin left to keep...and what an engine it was...120+ it has run on several occasions...and it has done mumbai nasik in 4 hrs including a puncture and repair time.....and what an amazing exhaust note...ohh how i will miss it...sob sob...

Engine oil leaked off due to deterioration of the sump gasket and before we knew it, the engine disintegrated (I opened the engine and as I expected, I found the bore scored vertically beyond 1 mm radially - for all practical purposes, the engine was finished. The symptoms were that the car stalled, refused to start for 10 minutes and then when it started, the engine threw out chunks of carbon from the tail pipe alongwith blue smoke - I knew it even before I opened it because we had simulated such failure modes in R&D). I had purchased it as a "spare engine" car, just in case ---- but with the engine gone, there was no reason to keep it so I sold it. I got a good price for it though.

There is learning here. PLEASE CHECK THE INTEGRITY OF THE SUMP GASKET AND REPLACE IT IF IN ANY DOUBT. DO NOT TAKE CHANCES.

I LEARNT - SO IT WAS WORTH IT EVEN IF I LEARNT THE HARD WAY. I WILL NOT MAKE THIS ERROR AGAIN.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Default Hi!

Well, count me in too. I just picked up an old 1957 Fiat Elegant with all thanks to Karl. I drove the car back home to Bombay from Pune and although I didn't exceed 50kmph even on the expressway because of my lack of faith in the car's brakes, I got home without any problems whatsoever except for a flat tyre.
I plan to get her restored soon. This is my first car but not the first Fiat in the family. My dad has a 1989 model Padmini Deluxe with the company fitted AC.
Looking forward to meeting all you blokes. Oh, by the way, I'm officially a classic bike guy. So I don't really know much about these cars but if there's anybody in here who wants some low down on their AJS's or Zundaps, let me know!
Warm regards,
Kyle.

Default Pune Fiat Club Rally

Cyrus,

My President is still not ready mechanically to drive back to Pune.
If you don't mind can I hitch a ride with one of you guys?
If so, then I can co-ordinate later, for jumping in.

Thanks.
