    Thanks - I've already been in touch

    I just need to verify they are absolutely the correct ones.

    The 19 is a combination of the version number and the type (29 or 31 mm integrated choke). Solex has been making small changes over the years, and ar indicating them with a version number on the PHH roundel. 19 is a PHH version number for a 31 mm integrated choke carb, so it is the correct one for a 818.303 engine (a 1.3S)

    Update.

    Sourced a pair of correct Solex carbs from a forum member a while ago and had them reconditioned/overhauled by a carb specialist here in Brisbane (they were in a bad way!).
    They are on the car now with a brand new manifold and running nicely right off the bat.

    The car itself is still unregistered and new sills are sitting in my garage ready to be put in in the new year. Once that is done I will have the carbs tweaked and hopefully that’s it!

    Re: Fulvia Cylinder Head Identification

    Bumping an old thread and looking for more answers!!!

    A nicely overhauled pair of Solex 35s has been fitted on to my 818.140 head. All good!

    It’s time to get the bodywork and gearbox sorted so we have dropped the subframe out completely and sent the chassis off to the body shop for new sills.

    The gearbox is getting an overhaul at the same time so I’m just going to give the engine/subframe a good clean and a lick of paint.

    Today I removed the front engine stabilising assembly and underneath where it mounts onto the block I found a casting number with 818540 (picture attached). Does this mean I have a 1.6 bottom end (with an 818.303 starter ring casting) That would leave me with 1.3 carbs and head sitting on top of a 1.6 block. Is this a known mod or just a random collection of parts? When I bought the car it had the Solex 42s attached to the 1.3 head. ������

    Re: Fulvia Cylinder Head Identification

    Now to find the unicorn - what would the likelihood be of finding a 1.6 head ???

    I'd say you have already found one unicorn - a 1.6 block, probably with all the innards (crank!). So it means that unicorns do exist
    What you need now is to get two unicorns to mate in your garage. I'm sure that somewhere out there, there is someone like you looking for a partner for their unicorn. Though even if you find it, it may be difficult to find an agreement who gets both.

    If I were you, I would source a 1.3 engine to have something to use. That will give you time to either find a head or sell your bottom end. Just selling your bottom end should pay for a nice and complete 1.3.

    Time to have a big party for finding a 1.6! Congrats

    considering the collection of parts your engine is made from, i wonder if the head has undergone some modifications. have you had it separated from the block?
