WTB 38 spline steering boss 500/600
« on: April 10, 2012, 10:17:41 AM »
as fits the earlier 500 and all the 600's..... used and abused not a problem, but must be cheap....malaysian ringgit doesnt hold much value against the good old pound !!

Hi Dave, Good to here from you thought you'd been eaten by a tiger or sommut ;D There expensive little buggers aren't they http://www.ricambio.co.uk/1554-steering-wheel-hub-boss--classic-fiat-500-600 The only person i can think of who my have one is Rusty's Uncle but at the moment he's on Walkabout in New Zealand. Maybe someone else can help? any upto date photos of the 600?

hi, yea, more expensive than they rightly should be !!!, and a fortune for me here spending in ringgit...... the 600? yes, almost finished now, running with 850 coupe discs, lowered suspension/reversed eye, cromodora cd11's---  also 903cc engine from a 127. with sport coupe carb and exhaust modified to freeflow muffler, oil cooler up front and abarth boot struts for the engine cover...... inside is stripped out, with cobra low back classic buckets and a few 'worry' gauges ;) its great fun to drive, and red lines at 7k rpm in 4th gear...... thats 145 KPH by my GPS !

paint job next, thinking gulf colours.....   but fed up with the bus sized steering !!!

 Not sure if this is any good?

 When you gonna put up some photos of the car? It sounds like fun.
 Have you kept the original radiator at the back?

"Walkabout Rusty" here , just back from a Kiwi beer tasting session. It was more checking the nose and taste notes rather than good old fashioned slurping so checking my mails etc and slurping some Tui and maybe a Steinlager or two. Just been reminded that our flight takes off in 7 days and 40 minutes time so can check steering wheels when I get back.
Off on a road trip in the morn and taking in the "Forgotten Highway" and it's raining so could be fun  ;D

yes radiator at the back, oil cooler up front, electric fan on the rad, and a scoop under the car, capillary gauge shows 90-100c at top speed in 35c ambient, so its ok....... pictures are a hassle, need to upload to imageshack or some place? will look into it.
