Starting my recently restored and modified Fiat X1/9 engine for the first time since we dragged it out off a field in Ohio. We added a four port intake, Duoletta carbs, lightened the flywheel, remove emmission controls and the AC, 1500 block (retains 4 speed gearbox), as well we added a euro cam along with a racing distributor and gave it some other tweaks to increase HP. We're very pleased with the results!
Fiat X19 - First internal start
This is our first attempt to get the car started after rebuilding it. It
had run (previous video) very well outside the car and this was the first
time with it in the vehicle. Unfortunately the gas in the old tank had
turned to turpentine but after some flushing it's running pretty decent
now. Just some kinks to be worked out and it should be running like a
champ. The new tires, and the new carbs really help it look great. :)
Thanks to Cathy for filming, Lou in his help restoring, and for my sister
bravely sitting next to me while I start it. She looks scared because the
brakes don't work yet and it wasn't tied down. :D

X1-9 Head Removal Tool.wmv
Here's a really trick tool to remove the cylinder head from an Fiat,
Zastava, or Seat using the SOHC head. Corrsion can keep the head from
lifting off, but this tool makes it easy. Watch John Edwards at Costa Mesa
R&D Automotive Machine remove the head from a 1500cc Fiat X1-9 engine.

The 40th Anniversary of the Fiat-Bertone X1-9 May 2012.wmv
This wonderful little mid-engined italian Sports car is now 40. This
weekend at the Dalesbridge Centre, Austwick the Uk membership celebrated
with their National Rally. 5 cars from The Netherlands also joined the
Event. There were Scenic Drives around the Glorious Yorkshire Dales and the
Gathering took place at the Embsay Steam Railway Bolton Abbey station. The
film shows our Guests from The Netherlands arriving at the Hull Ferry
Terminal. And, a GT-R33 made an appearance. Enjoy!
Fiat X1/9 Gear Reduction Starter Motor
Fiat X1/9 Gear Reduction Starter Motor Comparison - Crank Speed
I've replaced the OE Marelli starter (not pictured in this video) with a
new Denso gear reduction starter from Csaba @ AutoRicambi. The benefits
are: smaller, lighter, able to clock its position relative to the engine,
approx 50 RPM faster crank speed,
less current draw, might prove to be more reliable than the Marelli
(however, my OE starter lasted 27 years, finally failed due to worn brushes
and commutator - the one pictured is my spare).
So far I'm happy with this unit, however, it certainly doesn't sound
"Italian"... It certainly sounds Japanese. It does roll the engine over
quickly, which is a bonus!
The car is my 1982 Fiat X1/9 (Fuel Injected - original paint!!) - with a
Faza 35-75 cam. Very lumpy at idle, but sounds great at WOT. In this
video, the engine hasn't been started in a while (a few days), and since
the valve seals leak a little.. you'll see it "puff the blues".
Thankfully, it only does this at start up. My cure? I have a Mk1 1.3L Uno
turbo engine in the garage that will
replace the 1.5L OE unit. Muffler is stock (Ansa), except for the Ansa
45mm resonated tips.
I've raced Fiat X1/9s (CASC-OR GT road racing) and have had many of these
from various model years. I've also owned Alfa Romeos. I've owned this car
since 1989, but I think it's time for a Ferrari... F355!
I love Italian cars :)
