betaBoyz is a great place to get parts... https://353652584127257704.weebly.com/

Ebay as always another great place..

South Africa http://lancia.co.za/ has a massive range of parts.. but personally find it a nightmare to use :/

Just asking on this forum most people get back to you about parts if they have spares..

Also the lancia beta coupe appreciation society on facebook is great for advice ..



Good luck with it all !  Post some pics .. lots of great advice on here if you get stuck ...

If you're unsure how many miles/how much time has elapsed since the previous cam belt change, make doing that your first priority. Betaboyz should have all the bits and can advise.

Hi

Glad to see another being cared for. On the fuel tank how bad is it as always a tricky one to replace?

There's a guy in Hartlepool who is good with fuel tanks takes between 7 to10 days turnaround with a open guarantee. Like bring it back anytime and ill fix it I'm so sure it will last. Mine lasted 15years before I could smell petrol.
For you it's a quick ride across the A66

Or, if the tank hasnít actually got holes in it, you could try the Frost POR15 kit and line it yourself. I did mine and it seems ok 2 years on.

There are a few tips I would be pleased to pass on and donít get it on yourself or any clothing you might ever want to wear again, but it seems a good product. As with most things, preparation is key.
