It looks like the 1300cc is coming out.
So since I have stripped the threads on one of the head studs in the block, I find myself at a cross roads. I could just fix this by pulling the head, and installing a time sert with the engine still in the car...however, the thing is leaking oil...I cannot quiet discern from where, but I I think it is the front seal and rear seals. Moreover, 3rd gear syncro is so bad that is is really affecting the cars drive-ability....the rest of the syncros arent that great either.
So, I am going to pull the whole works, and replace what I need for the syncros in the transmission....but as for the motor....it looks like a good time for an upgrade. My car is a 1970 Giulia 1300 TI 4 door sedan (hydraulic clutch). Do I go 2000cc? 1750cc? which one, and from what donor? Is there a guide somewhere on this board someone can point to to? I am still new to the Alfa world, and ma trying to bone up on all the differences in motors, and what will work with what, and what won't. Any advice would be appreciated!
