I recently got a 1300 GT Junior of 1975. Previous owner told me that engine was replaced with 1600 (actually 1570cc). However engine full number is AR16000*55851 and I cannot find from which model was removed nor any other info. I have a concern regarding correct spares based on engine type. Are all 1570cc engines using the same parts? How this engine can be identified?
Thanks in advance!

On top of above information I took a picture from the fwd side of the head. It could be a 2.0L engine?? Forgot to mention that I measured compression which was in the range of 205-220 psi in all cylinders! What can be happened?

motor code AR1600 correspond to a 1.6 alfetta from mid ´80s
But with looking at the picture the motor code is AR16000* and not as usual AR01600*
Fusi and Tabucchi do not list such a motor code.
Either Luigi had a bad day with marking this engine, or the guy who fitted this engine to the car marked the engine himself new.

OT:
John hope the car with the cams, I sold you, is still running well and that you are not doing to bad with Corona in your place.
