I purchased a 1967 NUS spider that someone put a EA71 Subaru motor in. I was told that the EA71 was a racing engine, but I have no way to confirm this. It has two solex carbs, one I think has a stuck float. Does anyone know how i can tell what type of motor this really is.Posted Image

It's a dual-carb 1.6.

Other than that - we can't tell you anything really. The numbers are meaningless to us.

It's likely that it came from a performance model if it came with that intake manifold but the manifold will fit any EA71 so really there's no way to tell without knowing it's history and exactly what it came from. I will tell you that there are a LOT more carbs and manifolds out there than there are engines these days. Engines wear out or blow up - carbs and manifolds are what people save off the dead one's. There are 100 such manifold setups for every 1 actual dual-carb high-compression long block - seems that way anyhow.

Thanks for the reply. Sadly, I know nothing about the history. I wil have to assume that it is plain Jane, and focus on why it does not start.

Wow a NSU, like show more pics, these were a rotary car from Germany if i am right. I know someone who sold one to Jay Leno. It was like brand new infact. Every part on the car was shipped over from Germany, or was made new custom.

NSU is awesome, so post some pics.

Here are a couple of pictures, it is a nice body for an engine like that. It was fun to drive before it started acting up.
