New - Bis / Cinquecento 700 cylinder head.
« on: September 02, 2013, 10:01:44 PM »
 I`m not selling these just putting it up here in case any of the Bis boys are interested.
 These cylinder heads are sold by a Polish guy who lives in London. I bought some 126 parts of him before and he is a first class chap.
 Anyway these cylinder heads were fitted to the later Cinquecento 700 models built only for the Polish market and have slightly larger inlet valves. 35mm as opposed to the 32 on the Bis. The exhaust valves are the same.
 As you can see the cylinder head is brand new and I`ve been told they would be supplied with the correct valves.
 Mighty be a worthwhile upgrade if you are trying to extract a bit more power, or you have some problems with your original head.
 He is looking for £230 including the valves and I think he has got a couple of these heads.
 If you are interested just send me a PM and I`ll forward you the sellers details.
 Some pics.

Can he or someone professionally install the cylinder head?

 I don`t think he works on cars himself, but I`m sure any decent garage can install the head.

I never knew the Cinq even had a 700cc until now - just checked it out on wikipedia... Apparently it runs backwards.. whilst they're basically the same engine, the crankshaft on the cinq700 runs the opppsite direction to the 126 bis!  :o Imagine if you'd just completed an engine swap from a Cinq to your 126bis and merrily started the car and put it into 1st gear only to discover that you were going backwards LOL 4 reverse gears and one (very short) forward gear!

Is this a "bolt on" job? That is, a straight replacement using the same bits, apart from the new valves?

 I think your best bet would be Allegro pl. Perhaps some of our Polish members can help?
