I would like to determine what years the two Spica engines are from.

AR01500*02129 2.0L Spica engine is installed in my 74 GTV but is not original to the car from the repair receipts I have. Original engine was locked up.

AR00551*00102 1750 Spica engine out of a Duetto spider but what year? It is local and I maybe be interested in the engine and transmission.

Thank you,
Glenn

The 1500 came out of a 72 Berlina/Spider/GTV. No way to tell which one unless you have the original service booklet.
The 551 came out of a 68. Most likely came from Canada since Alfa's weren't imported into the US in 68 because of emissions.

6alfas, thank you.
On the 68, isn't that the one that the Spica pump is different from 69 on?

Probably not much of a difference between 72 and 74 on the 2.0L.
Thank you

551 engines were 1750 US Spica engines, sold in Canada too. They started building them in late 1968, probably right after the August vacation. All US 1750 engines through 1971 are 00551. Canada got US cars at this point, but had got Euro-type cars up through 1968. I had a 68 1750 Berlina (00548 eingine, carbed, Euro lights, etc.) sold new in Quebec.

There were no 68 MY US cars. T237/1 is the 69 pump; T237/2 is the 71 pump.
