Quite sure i had the original bonded glass. But i have fitted the seal without the window and it fits fine. Ans the window fits in the seal. Why wouldnt it work then?

Don't like the the rubber overlap though

4 and a half years ago, in an impulsive moment, I bought my coupé.  I was not familuar with the beta, or lancia, and was just looking for a Quick project.
Today it passed local MOT.



Its not yet finished, but can finaly take it for a spin.

Thanks for all the advice and help on this forum

What did i do? A lot of welding (way more than anticipated) new subframe, new bushings around, new shocks, Total new brake system, partially rebuild engine, new oilpump, new filters, new sparkplugs, new gearbox, rebuild carb, new grill, paintjob, ...

Still to do: new exhaust, uphulstery, finetuning carb

Hi

This is a known problem (by me and a few others at least). Some of the Cv joints which are sold for the Beta bind on the hub. Compare the flange with an old one and you will see they are different. I recently bought two and they need to be machined to fit.

So you can either return it or get it machined which should be a simple job.

The original CV had a dust cover which fits onto the joint next to the flange which goes against the bearing.

That was indeed the problem.

 Thanks peter. You warned me for this when i initially installed the new  cv joints, but i didnt understood what you ment. In other cars these nuts are typicly fingertight .
