1980's Fiat Spider 2000 engine needed

Postby CowboyErik » Thu Oct 13, 2016 2:25 pm

I posted picks in the Fiat Spider forum of my blue Spider with hole in the driver's side engine low. I was going to have this welded closed since engine still runs but won't hold oil cause of huge hole. I just looked again and the hole extends to the engine mount. One bold of 2 that I see is blow off and the mount bent outward, whatever happened blew from inside out but engine works. So I'm going to either swap engines or scrap this car. It as a new rear end and a perfect tranny. Loots of other parts but I'm keeping my Recaro seats. May be another Fiat, swap seats and sell what remains. LMK if your near Cincinnati, have an engine or what my Fiat. Pics on fiat spider forum on Ebay

This is what happens when the fuel pump lobe of the auxiliary shaft hits the crank. This means that belt slipped or was never on correctly. I would contact Jon Logan of Midwest.
