Fiat 124 Sump

Post by dlh98370 » Thu Sep 02, 2010 3:57 am

All,
I was at the local junkyard today and they have have aquired a Fiat 124. The engine and transmission were dissasmbled in the trunk. The Sump was something I have never seen berore. It was cast aluminum with a Fiat part number on it. It is baffled with doors and about 3 inches deep. The engine appears to be a pre US emissions type. ie no EGR fittings in the cylinder head. The distributor is located on the exhaust side cam box. Any ideas what this is? I was thinking of duying it for my 131.

If it can be had for little money, I'd buy it without knowing exactly what it is. A sump like that should easily make enough money to cover for your purchase if you can't use it yourself.

All,
My mistake, this sump must be a Fiat 850 sump not a 124 sump. The part number on the casting says Fiat100OBC419177.

Well, you had us all excited there for a while!

To be honest the only alloy sump I have ever seen was sold by Abarth in the 70s and has the distinctive word ABARTH cast along the front edge. Pretty useless piece of kit actually because although it had wings it had not trapdoors which is worse than even a standard sump.

I have a Fiat Argenta Volumex 2 liter sump that is also aluminum alloy. The sump must be at least a foot deep, no kidding! Maybe there was an Argenta truck!
