    The inlet manifold on ebay is mine Even if I don't immediately use it, it was just too good to let it pass by!

    Guys, Good thread. I presume all are using a Fiat gearbox and Marina back end. What is the requirements for the pro-shaft and fittings? I've a roadster with a standard A Series at the mo. I had a low mileage twin cam from an 80's Mirafiori which had structural corrosion on its 2nd Mot. Engine removed and stored for 30 years. I was looking forward to a fine project then a divorce caused its loss. Bugger!

    Anyway, I'm searching again as I reckoned it was the finest power plant for a Roadster, but would like to know how you installed from the flywheel back?

    Cheers
    Scotty

    Some info. from my change over. I did away with the Fiat drive spider and rubber joint and cannibalised the spider, welded a flange on and machined it to suit the marina prop flange. Had the propshaft rebuilt as it needed to be, I think, slightly shorter, and mounted it with the sliding joint to the g/box end.
    I had to do a total rebuild so a lot of bits were replaced which, hopefully, you wont need to.

    A little more info.
    The oil filter I'm using now is a Mann W717-2, slightly longer but smaller dia. which fits in better as I've mounted it remotely and now have a cooling rad and thermostat.
    Also I moded the clutch to a hydraulic system instead of the fiat cable using the marina slave cyl.
    Some pics attached. As I've got the steering rack out at the mo. I'm going to take some more pics which will give a better idea, when i've finished my cuppa, it's b-- cold in the garage.

    Is that an intercooler I see there? Did you feel you needed it? We don't have one in our set up - the engine doesn't seem to get too hot at all but the electric fan tends to switch on and goes on for up to 5-7 minutes after switching off. Also the oil filter info is much appreciated; I'm going to go & have a look & see if I have 10cms clearance for it - also what engine oil are you using?

    It's an oil cooler and thermostat. I use 15/40 semi year round. Oil temp comes up to 80C and that's it no matter how much I thrush it. Oil pressure at tickover hot is 20 and normal running 80.
