Fiat engine supplier

Purchased Fiat engine for my 750F car from James Miller. His details are already on the forum "jiminwatford". Would thoroughly recommend him. Engine was exactly as described with correct cylinder head and with starter motor and flywheel. He can also supply spares i.e. sumps, heads, flywheels, all at the right price.

Rod and I went to see James (Jim in Watford) yesterday to try to sort out the proper gearbox for the T5. We had bought one from him 6 months ago, it turned out to be the wrong one (my fault) and decided to wait until a Seicento Abarth box came up. An Abarth box cropped up last week and James was quite prepared to swap our first one for the Abarth. Top class, thoroughly helpful service so we completely agree with Mike's recommendation.
Whether it turns out to be the box that we need - that's a different matter!
And Jim in Watford is a good piece of marketing - it sounds much better to southern ears than Jim in a village just outside Scunthorpe.

Aye up..now then now then...whats the matter with that fine lincolnshire town that Tata are doing there best to close.

Is the Abarth box really any different ? or are you not telling just teasing.

The Abarth box will have to have the prescibed ratios to be legal

I'm very interested to know what this debate is about. I thought,as Martin points out, that we must have the ratios listed in the regulations. What is this about having new gears made? Sorry if I sound thick, I put down to old age. Cheers Tony

On the cinq's and I believe the seicento, the abarth was just bodykit, wheels, and trim. Don't forget there is also the ms edition

Yes, that MS. I believe he used to have a Ferrari badge on his own/publicity model.
