Sump pan sealing strips (903 cc
engine) - modification
1 The design of the sealing strips which go between the sump pan and the main bearing caps has been changed. Make sure that the narrower side of the strip fits into the channel in the sump pan.
1299 cc engine - description 2 In April 1984, a 1299 cc engine was introduced, progressively replacing the 1301 cc units used previously. The new engine is identical to the 1301 cc engine described in Chapter 1, with the exception of having a slightly shorter stroke.
3 However, as of approximately September 1987, the 1299 cc unit was phased out, being progressively replaced by the 1301 cc engine used initially.
4 As mentioned above, the two engines are all but identical, so identification of the unit fitted should not be necessary in practice.
Consult a FIAT dealer if in doubt.
