2.0 L Alfa Weber Motor, Rebuilt, low miles. From valve cover to oil pan and cooling fan to pressure plate.
The story…


I bought this from a reputable repair shop in Rochester NY about ten years ago. It was pulled from a GTV. Tony the shop owner – who I still know and trust - said he built it and the owner had it in the car about “two summers”. It was originally a Spica engine that now has performance cams. DCOE 40’s. Piston Kit -10:1??? Bearings etc.

I was going to put it in a 1750 Spider project but that’s for sale on the AlfaBB now too but will include this in the parts section and will sell separately.

The motor has been in my heated shop and has been sealed, fogged and turned over regularly.
I pulled the valve cover. Checked lash and chain tension and the cam and lifters. I rechecked the head torque properly loosening, lubricated nut/washers individually and retorqued to spec. Cam journals too. I pulled the Webers and cleaned them, set the float level and installed new but used carb mounts. Accelerator pumps function properly. They are mounted to a Euro 2.0L manifold. The oil was drained and new oil/filter installed. The oil system was forced pressure feed externally to insure everything was pre-oiled properly. The plugs were removed and the engine turned over with no fuel or ignition to ensure oil pump pressure was seen on a remote gauge. Plugs installed and it fired immediately on a remote fuel system.
The engine has been started and run several minutes. Ignition timing set. Carbs synched. A visual inspection of the intake and exhaust ports shows minimal carbon build up on the valves or ports as well as through the spark plug. Piston tops and valve/seat contact surface looks good.
No smoke. Fast cold starts and restarts. Great oil pressure – videos available.
Compression was checked. Cold engine/open throttle. Numbers approximately:
1/131 2/135 3/138 4/139
Includes:
Electronic ignition
Webers fitted with: 30mm Venturis, 125 mains, 200 air, F16 emulsion tubes, 55F5 accelerators, 50F8 idle circuit. 35 needle/seat. Synched and good mounts. Euro manifold.
Cams – aftermarket - #10121032001 - Autodelta - from comments on the BB - both intake and exhaust are 10.2mm Lift. Lifters and lobes look good.
Clutch/ PP look near new – no issues
Alternator and voltage regulator included. Work properly and read 13,2 V at idle.
Currently the engine has a bat wing pan and pump installed for 1966 and up Alfa Spiders/GTV’s/Berlinetta.
I have nearly every combination of Giulietta/Guilia/Alfetta oil pan, oil pump, front water pump and exhaust header for your application.

I will disassemble to any level to confirm the integrity of engine/components for the cost of time and replacement materials. Can see/inspect running engine at my shop.

I have lots of photos of the individual cylinder compression results. Cold start. Warm oil pressure. Oil pressure rise etc I can send to interested parties if truly interested. Bring your Mics.

Engine is on a stand and I can demonstrate.

Andrew - Yes all 4 cylinder inline Alfa blocks are interchangeable. Block casting are the same.

I'm confused by your vehicle description - 1981 Type 156 - I thought the 156 was a late 1990's transaxle car ? .

I've done several update/backdates with the TS engines.

( The REAR transaxle cars - Alfettas of the 70's - still use the same block but the crankshafts are not drilled for the transmission input shaft pilot bushing so all all Spider/GTV/Berlinas as well as the older smaller engines can be put in pretty much anything) FWD transmissions should not be an issue. )

Oil pans and the front accessory drives as well as the electronic distributor may be different too but if you wanted to just do a drop in with the motor as a runner with self contained electronic distributor and alternator it would work.

Where are you located ? you can see it run and check whatever you want out personally.

Call me if you have questions.

$1200 for the core 1750 complete > Pan to valve cover / Pulley to Pressure Plate / good oil pump / Spica pump , rails poppets etc. with the 5 speed. I can also provide pretty much every exhaust/water pump /oil pan combination for all Alfa applications you need. UPSable in 4/5 box's or a pallet - or better yet come to Rochester and examine all the parts.
