What engine oil?

Hi,
Just got a Fiat 500 with a 126 652cc aircooled engine in it.
Engine number is FIAT 126 A1 000 9325511
Want to do an oil change- please can anyone tell me what oil to use in the engine? How much oil in there? Also, where is the oil filter?

Can anyone tell me what year this engine might be?

Thanks very much.
PC

Re: What engine oil?

The short answer:
- this oil
- 2.6 litres if I remember correctly
- the oil filter is part of the engine itself, remove this lid and scrape the crud off the perimeter of the inside:

Hey, thanks very much. Looks like cleaning the filter may be a right pain as it's behind the engine mount.
