The engine’s going nicely.  Almost 500mls completed and, after an oil change yesterday, it’s time to use it a bit more.  

Carbs are still as set by Guy and spluttering a bit at low revs but not worth fussing about just yet; I’ll put another 500mls or so on the engine before getting these set properly.  

The planned shake-down has been essential so far.  A few snags to note:

•   Lost a subframe mounting bolt – replaced.
•   Eng oil temp gauge not working – awaiting replacement gauge.
•   Fuel gauge not working – needs fettling inside the tank.
•   Spal fan disappointing in the recent hot weather – might add an additional small fan to cover more of the radiator surface area.

Delighted with the Momo wheel.  I should've bought one years ago!

I have a Momo Competition for mine. I just wish I could use it!

Would I say finished?  I suppose you’re never finished with a Lancia and since I plan to track and climb this in the future there’ll certainly be more prep work to come.
I’ve covered just over 800mls on this GCRE creation and it’s magnificent. In this spec, the pull comes from around 2500rpm and with my foot firmly on the floor the revs build rapidly. By 5000rpm it’s on the cam and utterly hoofing. Changing from 2nd to 3rd approaching 7500rpm is glorious; in 3rd, I’m already at 5000rpm, the carbs are roaring, the exhaust is howling, and the speed just piles on. This is delightful.
