I think that gasket was flipped wrong way around on install. How did the bearings look?

On a pre F/L the horn relay is separate and mounted by the horns.

Probably first of a few dumb questions but:-

Which relay runs the horn, assuming it is one of the three in the fuse box?

Assuming I can’t track the lack of honk to something else, where might I get a replacement?( I am sure most relays would work, but the metal cased ones look nice!)

The part is originally from a Mercedes 190 W110 2.0D 61-65 according to the ad.

All we need now is a bracket made up to reflect the bracing seen in the original as the one shown may have some flex as appears to be just a flat piece of steel. No offence intended to Ian, just thinking it may be a good idea to have a group buy given how much of an issue this has been over recent years?

Excellent work there. My earlier message was misleading - I thought you were referring to the engine dampers; in fact I was blissfully unaware of the presence of a steering damper. As a matter of interest, what are the symptoms of a worn steering damper? Does the steering action go excessively light or excessively heavy?

I've taken note for when my engine next gets removed from the car.

In the absence of a replacement steering damper I decided to give it a go myself.
This is what I Found.
The purchase of a damper boxed by Febi and made by STABILUS. Febi part no. 1263. Cost is sub £25
It is a few centimetres longer and has a 10mm mounting bush both ends, but most importantly has enough travel.
Then I fabricated a bracket to suit and bolted it all together.
Seems to clear everything nicely and gives full travel lock to lock.

The 1366 engine is exclusively on S2FL2 otherwise known as series 4, it was never imported to the UK. There were never any series 1 1300 coupés the first one came in series 2 as the Lancia 1300 coupé (1297cc) which wasn't officially a 'Beta', these had a few unique features. This was replaced by the S2FL (1301cc) which was much more similar to the main range. It's kind of difficult to know when they stopped importing these as they had a lot of over aged stock back then, your old '81 would most likely have been built in 1979! I checked and it appears it was discontinued in the UK January 1980 this is probably the date of last import rather than when they ran out of stock.

Thanks rossacorsa. Having read your post, I checked my records - which confirmed that my Coupe was registered in 1980. I bought it from Colmore Depot in 1984. No doubt you are right - it could well have been imported in 1979 (possibly one of the last ones ?), but sat in a compound somewhere. Colmore Depot did have a history of sourcing Lancia's direct from the Concessionnaires. We had a neighbour who worked there and who acquired a couple of Lancia's used in Magazine Road Tests. He told me about them getting this 1.3 back in stock, they had originally sold it to regular Beta buyer and he traded it in for a 2 litre Coupe in 1984. It didn't take me long to decide to buy it - such a lovely car - and (in hindsight) a real shame I traded it in for a new Uno, when I did !

Looking at what else is available in the 175 size I think that's a no brainer. Annoyingly when I get my car back on the road I'll have to replace all four due to age  - loads of tread left but more than 10 years old + 150 bhp isn't a good recipe.
