Technical tips

Things that might help you while working on your Fiat 850. Some of it from my experience, most of it gathered from other owners on the internet.

Fiat used different engine codes for the different models of the 850, which are cast on the right side of the engine.

Fiat 850 fastening material

The Fiat 850 family is full of clamps, bolts, rubbers and nails. If you are repairing or restoring, you probably want to use parts that fit and you have to start searching. Without a parts book it is difficult to find the right part number and you spend (too) much time searching. That is why I scanned a number of pages with "Fissaggi vari" from the first series 850 Coupé and put them in a PDF.

The foundations.. mapping the Fiat 850

If your Fiat 850 has a crispy bottom or there is an unwanted crease in it, you want to restore it so that you are a proud happy driver again. Been there, done that; my 850 was transparent in several places. Fortunately I had an excellent sheet metal worker and access to a professional body workshop so that the entire bodywork could be made like new again. A good dimensions drawing was essential for this. And if it's good, I'll share it:

Choke-adjustment, for the Fiat 850 too.

If you also want the last bit of the carburettor adjustment of your Fiat 850 100% correct, you can click on the image below. Chances are that you will see your carburetor listed. It is an overview that was provided to the dealers by the Dutch importer.

The Fiat 850's heart

Parts books, workshop manuals, brochures, color samples, postcards, model cars ..... I collect them all.

Recently a question came up on the (now extinct) Forum on this site about the distance between the piston bottom and the top of the block, the deck clearance.
Because I didn't know the answer I went through the workshop manuals again. And there I came across this beautiful picture:

The 850's heart ! Apparently there is another Fiat 850 project in the Netherlands!

Windshield wipers for the Fiat 850

Not only on our own Fiat 850 there were problems with the wiper mechanism, also elsewhere in the Netherlands a number of small parts were missing when work on the wiper mechanism was started. We solved it by making a hybrid system of two mechanisms. And because not everyone has the parts books, I publish here the chapter Tergicristallo from the parts manual. This way we have a reference to search with.

Marelli Site

I've compared the 1968 and 1971 parts books and the only difference is that there was some extra development done by Marelli in 1971 making 4 extra part numbers available. See the table below

Parts number  1968  1971 
4110063 X X
4129427 X X
4132075 X X
4136248 X X
4101949   X
4180927   X

Fingers crossed that someone still has something lying around.
