I bought a rebuilt 2000 NORD from another member a few years ago.
I've forgotten what it is originally from and want to get the small parts I need to make it run.
It's on Dellorto 40's but I will need a correct distributor and starter.

Engine # AK01500*10198*

TIA.

This engine would be a 1972 (possibly an early 1973) USA version 2L originally fitted with Spica fuel injection. There's no way to determine if it came from a Berlina, GTV or Spider. The original distributor was a Marelli S 103 B and the 0.7HP starter was a Bosch 0 001 200 025.

Within some limits, most parts for Alfa engines are interchangeable. For example, you can use the Bosch distributor on your engine, or one of the aftermarket versions.

That would be AR, not AK, most likely. I can look at Berlina Register info to narrow down the date, though it could be from a GTV, Spider, or Berlina; engines all came off the same pile.

GTV seems familiar although it does have a Spider type oil pan on it.
1972 is probably close enough to get the right parts.

As long as I'm at it I may as well figure what my spare short block is from too.
AR01615*A95733

The "R" almost looks like "K" on this one too, the line closing the top is pretty thin.

Thanks for your help.

Agreed. The top line on the R can be so light/thin as to render it almost invisible.

Engine type AR01615*A9 was fitted to the 1977 California version Spider and the 1978 & 1979 50 State version Spiders. Given the quantity of chassis numbers assigned during this period and the 5733 sequential serial number of your engine, I'd guess it to be from 1979.

Not sure if it helps since cam covers can be changed?
But the rebuilt engine has a nicely polished cam cover with no hint of the plastic used with F.I. cars.

Still not sure what I will be putting it in.
