I was lucky and paid 700 for the latest engine with electronics, exhaust up to mid section and dashboard dials.

Re: 1368cc 16V FIRE Turbo (T-Jet) Uno conversion

Been ill this weekend, so no progress other than done initial electrical wiring, good enough for starting and running engine from under the bonnet (with accelerator pedal in hand!). If everything goes very well, I should have the Abarth engine in and wired up for testing on Sunday. I'll take pics!

Compare 700 GBP with how much it would cost to rebuild a standard UT engine and suddenly it looks like a bargain. Got me seriously thinking about going down this route!

Yeah, I can't wait to get it on the track and have some fun.

Why the animation of a guy polishing an anvil?

He's polishing his 'tool', not an anvil

I've only met you once, so yes. I thought you genuinely didn't know...

Dry humour doesn't translate very well into computer text. Yes, we have only met once. Would have like to have spoken more than the little we did. I remember being distracted by GSR Peter somewhat and I didn't see you again.

Anyway, since when did anvils need polishing?

I blame Chris for lowering the tone of this thread.

I have noticed that if you copy links from eBay with some characters in it, they go wrong and the item number is lost when it gets to eBay.

Link is to a whole Bravo T-Jet 120.

I love the T-Jet, but I do already have two. Three is greedy.
Thanks Dave Henry thanked for this post

Re: 1368cc 16V FIRE Turbo (T-Jet) Uno conversion

Tested my wiring outside of the car with the dials and accelerator pedal on the engine and fiatECUScan on a laptop. It's a good result, with the immobiliser deactivating correctly and power going to coils and injectors. Response from the pedal is fine and readings seem normal, etc. Should be good enough to start the engine with in the near future.

Took 1st T-Jet engine out and have been dressing the new engine in preparation to put it in tomorrow.

Need to make a flare and put a union on a trimmed T-jet clutch hydraulic pipe to connect to the existing line and facilitate the use of the "hydraulic bearing" on the T-jet gearbox. Don't have kit and am loathed to spend 150 on something that I probably won't use ten times, so might actually have to pay someone to do something for me!

On the subject of clutch hydraulics, I was investigating throttle pedal mounting and realised the clutch master cylinder was leaking very badly. Hard to believe it worked at all a couple of months ago. It actually squirts out when you press the pedal. Bit strange.

Tomorrow
Wash the engine bay
Dress engine and mate gearbox
Put new engine and gearbox back in
Put oil in engine and box (if I can find gearbox oil)
Hook up fuel lines
Mount intercooler and pipe it in

I may go for a start. There won't be cooling, so it really will be a 10 second affair. If successful, it would be enough for me to be able to go ahead and make a little loom up for the electronics.
