Alfa Nord 2000 Engine Freshly Built:

I have up for sale is my freshly build 2000 alfa nord.. Originally a SPICA injected engine out of my 79 Alfetta. I am going a different direction with my project so I am putting up for sale.

Taken down to a bare block and cylinder head, the following have been replaced and performed:

- Pistons upgraded to motronic 10.5:1
- Rod and crank bearings upgraded to king bearings
- Spruell Motorsports windage tray and block girdle.
- Rebuilt and upgraded oil pump
- Weiss chains, upgraded material
- New OE ring set.
- Balanced OE rod and piston set
- Spruell Motorsports oil passage restrictors
- Cylinder head resurfaced and valve seat reground for all new stainless valves
- All valve guides have been replaced @ high lift cam spec
- Intake and Exhaust cams replaced with high lift 11.1mm cams
- Stiffer valve springs
- Euro intake manifold port matched to head
- Alfaholics extended carb mounts port matched and blended to runner and head diameter.
- Weber DCOE 40 freshly rebuilt
- Centerline electronic distributor, plug wires, and new plugs
- NEW water pump, thermostat, engine mounts, all seals and gaskets replaced.
- complete blueprint of ENTIRE engine with full documentation and receipt.

There is much more involved to the work and parts on this engine. Please call with any and all questions on this. I am asking $3400.00 for everything here.

Cheers,

Thank You,
Ryan

Does the crankshaft have a pilot bearing, is it bored for a bearing?

It is not bored for the bearing at this point but this is something that can be done with the crank in the engine if being used in anything outside of a transaxle car.

There was a member who had posted a while ago about a specialty tool/drill jig (custom made) to bore the crankshaft for the pilot bushing. There has also been talk of others doing the same work with the crank installed as well as removed. This is not something that I have seen in person but it seems these steps have been crossed in the past. Sounds pretty cool

I cannot post links at this time but if you google "alfetta crank pilot bushing drill" the first link has multiple threads concerning this. Interesting read for sure.

I may be able to PM them if you would like?

Here's a link to a 12 year old post offering a special tool to drill the crank in situ. I wouldn't rely on this ad as proof it can be done.

That appeared to be a one off tool copied from something else. Ever see another? I'd like to see a link too.

This is a "Screaming" Deal, this is worth twice that. The Crank can be Drilled with a carbide bit, (with skill), I've done it before. Bob Lesher

What?

Guys! You don`t "Drill" holes in a crankshaft for bushings. Drilling is sloppy metal removal.

You "drill" a pilot hole then bore the finish size.
