Re: 126 engine swaps
Unlikely as the Bis engine is like the Fiat 500 estate engine in that it
is turned on its side through 90 degrees so it fits under the rear
floor. The gearbox bellhousing is different to match this rotation
although an aircooled 126 bellhousing will fit onto a Bis gearbox and
you may be able to put an aircooled engine into a Bis if the top of the
engine will fit into the hole in the Bis rear floor. Noisy. The
starter motor and engine mounting are different. I have some 126 parts
in Cheshire if you decide to go ahead.
