For Sale: / Window trim in black (rare in the UK)
« Last post by Minijohn on August 14, 2022, 09:21:15 PM »
Hi
I bought 2 of these kits (both doors, inside and out) for my 126 from Axel Gerstl because I couldn't find black ones in the UK.

https://webshop.fiat500126.com/en/doors/fiat-126/windows-und-accessories/window-frames-_black_-with-seal-_-set-for-1-door

However, although they're advertised as fitting the 126, they don't fit the Polish cars with no quarterlights.

Furthermore they can't be modified to fit the "no quarterlight" doors as the felt area that sits against the glass does not go the full length.

It's hardly worth returning them to Germany so I'm offering them for sale here.
They cost me 24 Euros each plus 19 Euros postage - 67 Euros less 19% VAT - so about £45 the pair.
Anyone interested at £25 incl UK post?
That was

Please get in touch if anyone has an old, aircooled Fiat 126 engine for sale. I’m looking for something cheap, £50 to £100, that I can take apart and learn from, nothing special, does not need to be working.

Fiat 126 Mechanical Problem Solving / Re: One piston firing & bad oil

Sounds like a head gasket to me.
First thing to try would be a compression check

Fiat 126 Mechanical Problem Solving / One piston firing & bad oil
« Last post by 126redbomb on July 28, 2022, 10:59:26 PM »
Hey guys! I'm currently picking the BIS back up as a project to get her running for shows ready for next year, but it seems like only one piston is firing, and the engine is rocking really bad at the idle, which seems like it is so slow that it is about to cut out. Any help? Also, I think I have a water leak into my oil, what could be causing this? Thanks in advance!  :D

Thanks for the reminder  :good:, I plan on taking the family up there, bit too far for the 126 though.

Fiat 126 Mechanical Problem Solving / Engine bay smell in cabin?
« Last post by andyzeetec on July 13, 2022, 09:44:58 PM »
Hi All

In my BIS I get an engine bay smell in the cabin whenever I open a window. Really odd as I'm driving forwards.

Any ideas?

If it cranks over well, then a new starter motor isn't needed (maybe get your battery tested under load)

If it otherwise runs fine, then you have either a fuel or spark problem.
My money would be on the electrics.

To check for a spark, pull a spark plug lead and connect a spare spark plug into the end and lay that on top of the engine.
Then with someone else turning the key, you should see a spark at the end of the plug.

You mention full battery voltage to the coil - do you not have full battery voltage there now - have you checked?
