This blue color will give some contrast on the side of the car

Yes it is!

It is a BMW Isetta from '59

Here it is in better days



I was thinking for a driveaxle concept. Originally the 600 has a very weak drive axle. It is possible to buy stronger driveaxles. The costs of these are 1600+ euros.

This can be cheaper! I was thinking of custom made gearbox flanges that will fit on VW T3 axles/cv-joints. I made a first drawing of this concept. Important things for the fabrication:

-aluminium axleflange and mounting flange
-High quality hardened steel axle
-tolerances for fitting bearing
-connection between axle and axleflange (splines,teeth?!)

Someone with experience with custom made parts?!

Mounted the rear fenders and one seat +some other stuff.

Also I got the engine running. This is the 903 engine. Later I will revise the Abarth Engine.
Today I mounted the electric Marelli Plex Ignition. The cooling system works fine.

I faced a big problem with the 903 engine, the cylinderblock was leaking cooling water caused by fatique metal



So today I started to disassembly my abarth engine:

The gasket, pistonrings and main and rod bearings are going to be replaced.

Also a bigger hole in the crank will be machined for the fitment to the 600 gearbox.

And the flywheel needs to be drilled another hole to fit this crank.

The little Fiat in his new home.

Driving it was fun. It only hesitates a bit when you fully open the throttle. I think it runs too rich, too much fuel injected by the accelerator pump. Adjusted the pump lever from position 2 to 1 (shorter and less amount of fuel), but not tested yet (broken fuel line).
