Yes , the early frontcovers from magnesium were a problem, nevertheless we spoke over distributoeshafts!
The much more problem was the corosion of the early frontcases from magnesium , they are all changed on waranty by Alfa Romeo Frankfurt 1965 till 1968 .....water found the way to oilarea in engine....
And the cracked bellhousing are common problems on all Alfas till 2000 series . We used the aluminium part from Sprint GT or TI ....
The original GTA startermount are integrated silentblocks , often forgotten to reinstall after starter change....the result was also cracked magbells...
I am not sure , if the frontwheeldrive bellhousing from lorry fits? never used, why , the bell from GT was strong enough.

By the way , i never saw a coloured inside of an GTA engine , does this has any reason or its only for the optic ?

Hi Gordon,
Interesting with the short little oil pump/distributor shaft. I came to basically the same arrangement back in the '70s when adapting a GTA head & distributor only to a 2000 bottom end.
Also about the 1300 truck bellhousing; what model was that? OR perhaps they were form column shift 101/105 Giulia?
The reason I wonder is that the Romeo vans & trucks had a ZF transaxle & the bellhousing is nothing at all like needed to attach to a Giulia type 'box.
regards,
Vince.

They were OLD Vince, No idea how Ausca sourced them. Mechanical F & S clutch type. Hole for flywheel timing marks. 1300 101? Some had column shift parts hanging on them.

Yes, maybe a 101 part. This is from a column shift 101, ring any bells?

That's the one Vince! I was talking to Mike Besic, Besic Motorsports, here in Illinois today, re: a GTA engine build. I mentioned that housing from Ausca, and he says he still has it, saved for some future project. I'm going to send him your photo!
