The engine cover panels are sprayed and sealed for cosmetic purposes. The engines are tested and vetted for performance, reliability and function purposes.

All engines are delivered without any fluids (fuel from the carburettor is emptied and engine oil is drained) for the safety of transport. It is therefore imperative that prior to the installation and first start of the engine, all fluids are filled in correctly.

Starter motors are not included with any engine. This is due to the variety of combinations that can take place and the variability of models that are inherent with the gearbox bell. Get in touch for a quote on a starter motor for your vehicle here.

All parts fitted are Made in Italy – NO SECOND HAND OR BUDGET QUALITY PARTS USED. The restoration is carried out by experts and professionals in their field. Due to this, AutoBella supplies every engine with a 6-months or 5000 KM warranty**.
