Have a look at the rear end of the crankshaft to see if there is a pilot bearing for a trans input shaft or just centering hole. Also look at the water pump to see if there is a tach drive. A centering hole and no tach drive indicate an Alfetta trans axle car source.

thanks for the quick replies gentlemen. From what you've supplied, it sounds like I have a late 70's motor, of european spec...part of the 116 series, but definitely not Alfetta. The serial is on the left/driver's side block adjacent to bellhousing (thus euro spec?) It does have a pilot bushing and came with standard 2L bellhousing. I'll attach photos..

Edit: finally got the photos small enough to attach. Also, perhaps it was an Alfetta motor already set up for front tranny in a different car?

Interesting.
Engine type 01629 is a USA 49 State 2.0L with Spica fuel injection and was fitted to 1975-1977 Alfettas and Spiders. However, Alfa lists sequential serial numbers starting with the number 0 or number 5; not number 9.

Awaiting pics...

just FYI,
there is a 2 litre alfetta engine (no year mentioned) for sale in the Netherlands, also begining with a "9"

could the '9' have been a euro thing?

Found it!

Alfa parts microfiche #0048 dated 7/79 lists the starting sequential serial number for engine type 01629, having been fitted to the 1975 & 1977 (1976 not mentioned) Federal Edition Spiders (49-State), as 900001.
My previous post was based on info obtained from parts microfiche #0429 (date not currently available). No idea as to why the discrepancy.

Given the evidence of two '9' series engines in this thread, the nod would favor the 0048 fiche as being correct. As such, and given the low engine number in the original post, one might conclude that AR01629*900348* originated from a 1975 USA 49 State Spider.

thanks a bunch Papajam.. You clearly have some good historical resources. Given the general look of the motor, it fit's well.
