A112 Head
« on: March 23, 2007, 10:45:20 AM »
Just a simple question I hope. Does the A112 903cc and A112 1050cc engines use the same head? I found a A112 Abarth 70hp engine but it is missing the head. Finding heads from 903cc is no problem, but I don;t know if the Abarth head had bigger valves or any other dieferences.

I will get a head from a 903 engine and port-polish it. Can anyone tell me the correct valve size in order to use one 40DCOE carb???

Thanks for the help

Thanks for the reply Peter, Do you know if the valves are the same size?

HI,

I believe the A112 70 HP head will have marginally larger valves.  Also the A112 head had a small "eyebrow" relief around the larger intake valve.  As far as the combustion chamber is concerned, they are pretty much the same as the 850 and 903.  I have used all of these heads, and frankly I cannot find any difference on the engine dyno.
