Thanks, I understand and am happy that Iíve not missed something. Iíll certainly keep it isolated for running in.
Alps would be fun though!

Hi Chris I have the original Accusump Electric valve you have which allows oil to enter the unit when there is enough extra pressure and will release it when it senses a pressure drop. Turning it off stops it releasing oil under pressure back into the system. Your second physical valve stops oil entering or leaving. So good if you do not want any running in oil getting to the Accusump.

I have not seen the set up Ian has before, but it looks like an electric valve head on the manual valve so I would guess he can turn it fully off and leave it to fill and respond in line with oil pressure when switched on.

They are far cheaper than running the bearings and trashing the crank or throwing a con rod through the crank case!

Mine got good use in the Alps on the Turino trip!

Eric, Ian,

Ref components in my layout picture: do you mean a further electric servo to replace the valve with the yellow handle?

AROC have confirmed that we will have an exclusive Lancia parking area.

Have installed mine as Eric says. Simply fitted an electric servo arm onto the original valve. Love being able to pre-oil before start-up.

I am installing an Accusump on my Beta Spyder VX project and already run one on my Montecarlo . I recommend an electrical turn off switch well labeled. It helps with servicing and holding oil in the Accusump when you are just turning the ignition on not starting the car.

I have baffled sumps in both cars.

Hi All
I'm booked in at the Abbey Lodge Hotel, Shipley.

Looking forwards to it!

Yes the smaller lower outlet has been blanked off although the top rail was originally a Strada 130tc/105tc regatta 100s assembly (canít remember when I saved it).

The strut brace is more or less off the shelf. Originally Peugeot 309 with minor mods to fit. I have modded it some more with a removable 6 inch section (not in shot) just above the timing belt to allow easy removal of timing belt cover. I like making things easy to inspect/maintain, canít stand unnecessarily removing unrelated components just to do a simple job. Thatís when things strip etc and a simple job becomes a pain.

Unless summer throws up some expected results with the inline thermostat mod, itís the only way to go for me now.

 RIP in-head stats.

Excellent work, Ian. Very much liking the home-brewed stat housing - lots of options. I can't see from the photos, but have you retained the lower smaller outlet on the top water rail, or had it blanked off? I'm guessing the latter, as that is the outlet which feeds the thermostat on standard unmodified S2 Betas.

And is the bracing strut between the shock tops an over the counter purchase, or something you had fabricated? Something along those lines is on my wish-list.
