What car does this come from?
« on: February 17, 2009, 01:59:05 PM »
Definitely not a 126, but does anyone know what engine this gearbox would have originally been mated to? Was it a 131 perhaps?

I would also say a 131.

Almost certainly from a 131 Supermirafiori. I got to know that box close up and personal when I put a new clutch in a 1600cc version I bought. About as much wriggle room as Gordon Brown's economy  :cry: with the car on front ramps on the driveway. Worth it though as it was the only car I have ever spun on a dry road just by giving it some welly on the right foot. I had the standard 1600cc double overhead cam version but the 2 litre Sport and Abarth versions must have been totaly awsome  :yikes: Plus I believe that there were further tuning stages possible !

 Could be a 132, but this is pretty much the same thing. I have got one of these in my 125p coupled with a 1600 twin cam :) It is great fun... :) Unfortunately it is just resting in the garage at the mo, but hopefully it will be all done up one day(lime green, roll cage, twin carbs.....)
