1957 Alpha Romeo

According to wikipedia, the Alpha Romeo Sprint in the 1950’s was called the Alfa 1900 Sprint, the 1900 C Super Sprint (1954), from 1963-1977 the Giulia Sprint and the 2600 Sprint GT during the 1960’s.

Actually for 1957, I only see the 1950-1958 1900 and the 1954-1962 Giulietta as possible models. Autozone lists the 1957 Alfa Romeo as either a 1900, 1900C or a Giulietta.

Both the 1900 and 1900C are listed as having 4 Cylinders 2.0L 2BL 2 Carb and it is actually the Giulietta listed with the 4 Cylinders 1.3L with a 1 BL DOHC, a 2 BL or the 2 BL 2 Carb DOHC.

The Alfa factory was bombed during World War II, and struggled to return to profitability after the war. Beginning with the 1954 model year, with the introduction of the Giulietta series what would become the classic Alfa Romeo overhead Twin Cam four cylinder engine, initially in 1300 cc form.

In 1953 the 1900 Super and 1900 TI Super (also 1900 Super Sprint) with 1975 cc engine were introduced with a 5-speed manual in Super Sprint version.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta manufactured by the Italian car maker Alfa Romeo from 1954 to 1965 used an Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine of 1290 cc straight-4, with twin overhead camshafts. The original Giulietta engine produced a power output of 53 bhp in the sedan and 80 bhp in the Giulietta Sprint. This was to be increased to 116 bhp in later sporting models such as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale and the Giulietta Sprint SZ (Sprint Zagato).

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint was produced from 1954-1965, assembled in Grugliasco in the Province of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s coupe body style was named the Sprint. The engine was a 1.3 L inline-four engine with a displacement of 1,290 cc. The all alloy Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine was introduced in the 1290 cc Giulietta of 1954.

Tune-up specification for the 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.3L 2BL 4cyl are:

The Ignition Timing:

with manual transmission *Distributor vacuum connected *Point gap at .014 to .016 *Set warm idle at 650 RPM *Align "PMS" mark on the flywheel with the timing indication pointer.

What are those strange letters on the Alfa Romeo crankshaft pulley?

They stand for Italian words:

F – ("Fissa")=Fixed. The correct advance for static ignition timing.

P – ("Punto")=Top dead center.

M – ("Massimo") = Ignition timing at maximum advance (usually 5000 rpm; see above).

I – ("Iniezione") = Crankshaft position where SPICA injection pump's timing marks are aligned (where fitted).
