With this 1.5l conversion I used an X19 engine out of a 79, since 128's and X engines tilt at different angles I swapped the oil pan and pickup from the old 1.3l 128 engine which I mated to a 32/32 weber DMTR. This engine came with a one wire Marelli alternator so the wiring got a little upgrade as well. I want the under hood business to remain stock in appearance.
This is a Dave Voss car that has been in the bay area with other Fiat loving owners probably since new it still has it's original California blue plates. Since I got the car I've installed a bigger 1.5l engine and struts from an X19, installed all new brake hydraulic and front pads, re sealed the engine, it has the 74 only 4-2-1 exhaust manifold and Yugo electronic dizzy. Also gone are the steel ingot front and rear bumpers, I have some series 1 chrome bumpers on the way. You can also see those pretty little Cromodora CD58 wheels I got back from a guy I sold them to with some fresh rattle can iron paint. I have some other photos I'll post soon. Oh pretty cool Fiat spider 2000 shaved side markers!
