That video is reminiscent of my first passenger ride with my daughter after handing over the keys to her Citroen C1 after passing her driving test Grin

She ripped the exhaust off last week whilst practicing for the Dukes of Hazzard over speed bumps Sad

Brilliant driving in that video.

Balls of steel or batshit crazy? Either way it’s good to watch. Grin

So good and bad news to report this evening.

The bad news is that the Abarth engine in Italy still hasn’t materialised and I have got my deposit back.

The good news is that I have bought a complete 650 engine and synchromesh box with all ancillaries included Thumb

The 650 gives a 40% increase in power in standard form over the 500 and is very tuneable with the head from the MK1 Fiat Panda which was available with the two cylinder aircooled lump.

While on holiday in the hilltop village of Triora, a place supposedly with links in times past to witchcraft..I was surprised and delighted to stumble upon a Fiat club visit to the village.. I grabbed some pics.

So been quite busy working on the Fiat with my 14 year old son Joe.
I gave the new to me engine a full service and carefully port matched the exhaust manifolds to the head and also the inlet manifold.
We also swapped out the alternator for the original dynamo as it looks more period correct and works well.
This involved changing over much of the tin wear and bracketing.
The starter pull cable and wiring needed to be rerouted also as the starter is on the side of the engine on a 652 and on top on the 500.

Then a final burnish of the lettering with 800 grit paper wrapped around a flat file and then a coat of clear to seal it.
Did the rocker cover too which should add another 5mph to the top speed Mr. Green
