Fiat 127 -74 first startup after buying.
Has not run for couple of years. Had to change fuel hose, fix one wire, file, check and adjust the points to get it running.
Fiat 127 P-twin 525cc _02.wmv
Radical repair of a Fiat 127 engine. When big-end bearing seized I removed the belonging piston and it´s opposing brother. Instead of a 1050cc 4-cyl I now have a nice 523cc P-twin with 180 degree crankshaft. (two opposing pistons for best balance). Probably around 25hp left from the engine. The Fiat flats out at about 80 km/h. Questions are how long the engine will last and how big the reduction in fuel consumption will be.
