Has funny stamping where engine number is supposed to go. Possible use in a GTA Jr. at some point is my best guess. Has a standard set of cams, I have the oil filter canister and can provide a flywheel also, $750.00 If you’re racing a 1300 engined car this is perfect.

Hey Fred, it would be interesting to know why and who stamped that otherwise un-numbered block and if it has GTAj liners and crank in there.

ciao

Dear Ken, those people aren’t around anymore. It was with a GTA Jr. that sold last year. Not fooling anyone, it’s a 74 by 75 motor otherwise there would be a number in front of the seven.

I didn't know that the 1300 had the two clamping bolts on the front of the valve cover.

OK maybe that 559 number was there for the benefit of any tech guys walking around with a GTAj Homologation sheet. I know that when GTA 752507 was acting like a GTAj C-Sedan in 1975 and 1976 the racers had had a GTAj Homologation sheet verified by the CASC (Canadian equivalent of SCCA). But they had a 559 GTAj engine in her at the time.

FWIW I think it's a bit earlier than '74/'75 as it still has the block mounted oil canister, early in '70 - '72 they went to the screw on disposable filter on the timing cover - least ways that's how engines were configured here in SA while Alfa was building them here.

My '68 & '69 GT 1300 Juniors have the identical configuration with the block mounted filter & the 2 bolts on the front of the cam cover
