    Hi, Due to time restrictions, I no longer do any total engine building, other than for my own use. However, I both know, and do work for, a large group of engine builders that can help you.
    Easiest to contact me by e-mai at <[email protected]>. Referance your note to me. (cut/paste) on the e-mail.
    I'll ask a few questions and send you to the best builder.
    Best, Gordon

    Hi Gordon,
    I saw some of you posts on this board regarding Webers. Seems like you are the expert!
    I have a 1957 Giulietta Spider Veloce (1495*01960) with a 2.0L and 5 speed. Recently I acquired a 1960 Veloce engine in parts (since 1969), engine# 00106*00259. Most parts are there including Aluminum sump, head, carbs and air cleaner, etc. Engine block is completely disassembled with liners out. Found it locally on CL out of Duluth, MN. Incredible!
    The plan is to rebuild the new engine and swap out the 2.0L. Going back closer to stock, I guess.
    Since then I have cleaned some of the parts and had the crank machined 0.010" at a local shop. The head and carburetors have not been touched at all.

    My question is this; do you do engine work in addition to carburetors? I am looking for an experienced engine builder to take on this project.

    Hope to hear back from you.
