Re: Change engine

Not much perhaps a re. Jet or bigger carb if you have one. Really it would be best to get a donor punto 60 mk1. You will have all you need an an extra 25 hp

Re: Change engine

If yours is a 900cc currently it'll have different engine mounts to the FIRE engines (which I believe the engine pictured is), I may be wrong about that but I'm pretty sure

Re: Change engine

If your current car is a mk1 903, fitting a 999 Fire is a fairly big job. Your best bet is probably to keep an eye out for a rusty scrapper 999 Mk2 then you can scavenge all the bits and pieces you need and have an installation to measure to see where to install stuff. It's a newer, unrelated engine so it won't marry up with the gearbox so ideally you'll need that, engine mounts, possibly driveshafts?? the inner CV joints are different anyway if you swap the 'box. Exhaust won't marry up either, manifold it doesn't look like you've got there so you'll need that, and the standard mk2 exhaust is designed for the coil sprung rear so you'll have to graft the Fire front end onto your existing rear - maybe a Fire engined 4x4 exhaust could be made to fit as it's more closely related underneath. As above for ease of running you will need a carb - think that's the Bosch injection unit you've got there?
As I said, easier to lay your hands on a complete car to transplant - must be a few rusty ones out there.

Re: Change engine

Ok seems to be a bigger project than I thought
My engine still works but it rattles an sound a little bit worn out.
And it feels slow and weak.
Where's the best place to buy parts for a rebuild and which parts
should I go for ?
I'm from Sweden

Re: Change engine

Rattles could be a lot of things but with I'd guess that it could be the hydraulic tappets causing the rattle. If it feels noticeably slow and weak it could be pinking which causes a rattly sound, would need the fuel system looking at for that. Can't help you with parts in Sweden though, the 903 shares a lot of parts with the 899 fitted to Cinquecento's and Seicento's so may be able to interchange parts with those.

Re: Change engine

Ok
Could it be worn out piston rings?

Re: Change engine

if you have a 903cc OHV engine now, just replace it with a 899cc OHV engine from a cinquecento SX. it will fit perfectly and you will have modern day fuel injection, no choke, no distributor.
