I'm sorry but, what engine is this?

Post by Chileno » 20 Mar 2017 02:39 am

I'm not a car guy, mechanically.
Since my uncle gave me this 360 i've had the same problem, recognising what engine is this it, he says he changed the engine to a bigger one (2.0 to 2.3), but I insist he didn't.
I Think he wants to believe the opposite because he paid for the engine :lol:
Well i'd like to post a picture but the car isn't in my house, and the only photo i took of the engine got corrupted somehow.
theres a snapshot a video but it's not very clear, i will try to get a better picture asap.

By the way, its a 1985 :360: GLS.

(I Hope it's the original engine)

It definitely looks like the original 2.0 B19A engine. K is the designation for the carburettor B200 engine.

He may well have had a 2.3 fitted using all of the 2.0 ancillaries, have a look on the block I think below the exhaust manifold it will say B23 if it is a 2.3

Something does look different.... it looks like a B19A (or B21A/B23A) but with a different carb set up (rather than the Stromberg that these would normally come with). Could be a Solex Cisac fitted to the original B19A engine.
