I have the same engine and your engine is a 1959 Sprint Normale 101 engine with 1315 serial numbers. The very early 101 Sprint and Spider engine started with serial number 1315.010001 and ended with serial number 1315.014299. I never understood why Alfa used 1315 on 101 engines. I traded a Bosch generator for my 1959 101 Sprint Normale engine and always thought that the engine was 0010102 serial number but, it was a 1315.012xxx number. I forgot the actual serial number but, still have the engine. PM sent

I've had a few of these engines. In spite of the 750 numbering scheme I think they are dimensionally 101 engines. The one I just tried to build (had main bearing issues) unquestionably had a 101 crank in it. Check Fusi, I think these are 60/61 Sprint and Spider engines?

Andrew Im sure you're right. Its a 101 engine, from a 101 60 Spider. Tom Sahines came by and he mentioned the blick was a 750, so I went with it.

I will add photos of the head off showing liners n valves.
no idea mileage, sorry

I bought the car in parts as a shell w driveline n suspesion already removed. tbh, I regret selling it but at the time I had too many projects n racing was taking all my energy n money. I did recently buy back the Super I also sold, so some consolation.

The first of the 101 dimension engines that arrived in 1959 still ran the old 750 designations of 1315, the engine numbers all start at 010001

Easiest identifier for an Interim 1315 designated 101 block is the fuel pump mount below the distributor, a pure 750 block doesn't have this feature as the pumps were on the front of the head
