16 Valve engine
Hallo 1750 racer,
nice to hear of one of this masterpieces from italian race technology.
i own and work with this typ of engine long time. I bought the engine apart of the car 1980 and the car 2011, a race prepared GTA 1300 ,driver war T.Zeccoli , and Autodelta as first owner in the Libretto. Is was one of four engines in the german speaking countries in that period delivered from C.Chiti over Klaus Steinmetz , the racemanager of Alfa Germany in that period. The pre-owner bought the car direct from him 1975 in Settimo Milanese with the usual trouble in Italy .Means: the car was not ready at former declared date, the engine blow the headgasket at the testdrive in Monza. Luccky, that the car was not payed before delivery as wished from Autodelta!!!After reparing , blowing the next gasket one day later same place. Than, he take the car to germany and prepared the engine with his owne correctness. But the engine never reached the declared and prised horsepower of 180 HP!!! So , he race the car with the narrow head 2 valve engine without trouble and forgot the 4valve- engine.
In the last 30 years, i collected some spareparts for these typ, so in the moment , i prepare the car for my son Max, he race my other GTA 1300 with Carb-engine with succes and wish more power.
