Just bought a 600D Abarth 1000 need engine

I just picked up a 1965 Abarth 600, The car is in Kit form. a great shell, A florida car with almost Zero rust. The only rust is in the nose spare tire area.. thats it.

I also have alot of parts. 4 heads a crank, 2 sets of pistons, one high compression.

The problem its missing the block.. Cylinder walls. Since I am unsure what else is missing I would like to get a shortblock.
Where can I find big parts like a engine block?

Thanks..
B

Anthony

Thanks I will send them an Email

The vehicle I have came with a set of stock and high compression pistons.
IF you are unable to locate some I can send you photos and dimensions to have a set made. I would imagine the high compression ones are rare. Plus they are so small having a set machined would be affordable.

Anthony
I am still sorting through over a dozen boxes of parts.
Ill post some photos of the pistons in the next few days. I have a friend that rebuilds VW and classic Porsche engines, He will be able to properly measure the dimensions of the pistons.

I have found a few engines but they are all outside the USA. So shipping is costly.

If you're in the USA call Chris Obert at Fiat Plus in Santa Cruz. He's got short blocks for $150
fiatplus.com

I couldn't keep my old Fiats on the road without Chris.

Yes, PLEASE post some pics of your 600 ! I've been working on "restoring" mine for over a year now and would love to see what other 600 owners are up to.

Thanks !
