Help needed with Fiat Croma engine

Hello there, I am a new owner of 1983 Pinzgauer (an Austrian military truck) from US. Previous owner imported it from Montenegro with a Fiat Croma turbo diesel engine.

I just got the truck delivered today and found out that the starter motor is missing a bolt (screw). This made the gear not to align properly and had issues starting the truck.

We do not have these engines here and really would like your inputs to identify/resolve issues.

Questions:
1. Could you please help identify the engine model/year. I will also try to get some details by looking at any serial numbers available.
2. I tried searching hard and fast for the starter motor bolt, but did not find any.
3. If someone here has a workshop manual or where I could find one, I appreciate it.

Tl;dr: Need help in identifying Fiat Croma engine. Missing Starter bolt.

Appreciate your help.

Re: Help needed with Fiat Croma engine

Hi and welcome

I guess the truck is 1980's SteyrPuch

That motor will be late 80's too..

MASSIVE market for FIAT bordering the Adriatic.. so an obvious choice of motor back then

Pre internet dates.. the info is harder to find.. but its all out there somewhere

Lancia may well be a good source of info too

Thank you for the reply, Charlie.
Would Lancia Thema be the comparable model to look for?
Looking at the future in repairs, could you comment on the reliability of these engines?

Thanks for the quick reply. I will look into some info on the engine itself.
