From what I have read, the cylinder head is the most difficult part to procure and maintain in good condition. If your car has a good one, please be extremely careful with it

All the best for the restoration, look forward to regular updates.

Hi cvette,

Yes, they do stock parts for many cars- there's every chance he may have Ambassador parts as well.
But mind you, they are quite pricey. And unwilling to negotiate.

Hi Daman,

Just a suggestion from my side. Please first and foremost go through the following thread:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...delivered.html (Pilots & his 1950 Mouse Restoration - Fiat Topolino Delivered)

Hopefully you will have realized that the Achilles heel of this car is the engine. It has a cast block, and an aluminium head. The head gets corroded. And then these cars are killed. Therefore the first thing to do is to get the engine done. When the chamber is missing, it implies that some engine work was left half way. Only after you have a perfectly running engine should you proceed with any other work.

At one time in Mumbai more than 10 Topolino's were lying around abandoned, from Juhu to Byculla to Chor Bazar. Some were complete and died just because of the engine.

Some people still don't like to scrap them when the engine is busted and that I can understand. But then they become creative and do this. So sad, could have been funky if successfully completed.

Cheers harit

Hello Daman

The chamber is easily fabricated and the grill can be made. That is the easy part.
Fly wheel and distributor cap difficult to find in India but can be sourced on the net - but as Harit said repairing the Topolino engine can be a daunting prospect - but that makes it more challenging and interesting.
Does the car have the other engine peripherals dynamo and the starter motor?
From the photograph it appears the above parts as well as the timing gear and cover are missing

Happy restoration

Chauhan

Question Austin 10 Bonnet Emblem?

Hi

I am in the process of restoring an Austin 10 after completing the restoration of an Austin 8.

The Austin emblem fitted just below the bonnet handle in Austin 10 is missing.
Is there any difference between the sizes of an Austin 8 and 10 emblems.

Thanks
PS morderator please move thread to right category if ive posted at the wrong place.
