1967 Lamborghini Muira P400 (RG)
Service Log by Dan Mooney



 

 



We are delighted to have been entrusted with the care and servicing of this beautiful Lamborghini Muira P400. Our first task is to rectify several electrical issues, including inoperative headlamps, fog lamps, fans, etc. At some point we will also be addressing several minor cosmetic issues.





 

 

Update report - January 26, 2017

The following photographs cover the relocation of the driver's seat belt shoulder anchor, and the installation of new front brake rotors.



Installing a seat belt anchor point over the
driver's left shoulder
Cutting an access panel behind the seat belt
mounting point










Fabricating and installing a panel so back side
of seat belt anchor can be accessed
Belt now positioned over driver's shoulder, rather
than across his neck











Horns replace, now working










Installing new front brake rotors











Lock tabs folded over
Rear tabs had not been previously folded, which
has now been corrected




Today we have been fabricating and installing new brake lines and balancing the road wheels. Previous balance weights had been glued in position where they contacted the calipers when the wheels rotated. There is so little clearance between the top of the calipers and the inner surface of the wheel rim, that you really have to use clip on weights attached to the inner bead. Several of the old balance weights were missing altogether and others were barely attached.



Hard lines to rear calipers were strained and
actually cracked open when removed
New lines were fabricated and installed










New line fabricated and installed much tighter
around top of front right caliper
After cleaning FR inner rim, damage caused by old
brake line contacting inner rim clearly visible










Balance weights had been glued where there
was insufficient clearance for calipers
Cleaning inner rims prior to re-balancing wheels












Bead clip balance weights are a simple fix
to caliper clearance problems
All 4 door hinge pins are now secured with
cotter pins and E clips
















Another productive day working our way through several issues. Unfortunately we discovered a few new issues, such as brake lines rubbing inside wheels, and defective air horns, etc, but we were still able to check off several items today.



Brake line rubbing against inner rim of
front right wheel
Witness marks show where brake line has been
contacting inner rim










Engine cover release handles were missing
grommets on both sides
Missing rubber grommets caused handles to rattle
and clunk around










A little shrink wrap and a custom elliptical rubber
washer was a cheap and cheerful fix
Lock nut was missing from the back of the driver's
side handle - now installed










Door hinge pins need securing
Upper passenger side pin literally about to fall out










#3 fuse was vacant and keyed, so we decided
to use it for the new fan relay
Fan relay now wired in










Fan relay positioned by battery
New circuit breaker




We are happy to get this new project underway. Our first task will be to address several electrical issues. We have already rebuilt the right hand headlamp mechanism, installing a new bronze crank gear, rewired the headlamp motor and rebuilt and rewired the fog lamp switch. You now have fully operational headlamps and fog lamps.
















RH exhaust tip has been pushed up into the rear
valance, causing slight damage to the valance










Slightly damaged chassis tube extension
Brake rotors will be replaced










Damage under front right corner











Small dent at front left corner
Inoperative fog lamps are loose on their mounts










New bronze gear will be installed in RH
headlamp mechanism























Headlamp motor was wired incorrectly











Auxiliary (switch operated) fan was inoperative
Clock is inoperative. Good power and ground, so
almost certainly internals bad.











Both headlamps now operational
