    The engine in this car is related to the engines we're discussing but I would think no major parts would be interchangeable.

    My bad!

    Would you elaborate a little?

    That's a 256 or 246F1 from 1959-60, I'm sure someone can say which serial #. They were also 65deg V6s but very different to the later engines, 86/85x71 compared to the later engines at 77/86x57 for the 1.6 & 2L, and finally the 1968 Tasman version at 90x63 (2.4L).

    All sorts in between including a series of 2 cams at 60deg, and then the old F1 engine was used in I think 1966 for a Tasman car.

    Doug Nye's book 'Dino - The Little Ferrari' is a good start to look at them all. He lists nearly 40 different V6's between 1957 and the the 1969 246GT!

    Here's a photo of 002 (206S), although I don't think it helps any. Originally fuel-injected, but changed to carbs by later owner Bill Schworer. 2 valves, I think.

    Not a very neat looking set-up with all those alloy pipes around. Whatever are they?

    In 1969 Ferrari did test a Dino 166F2 engine at Modena with 12 intakes and 12 exhausts, 1 for every valve, but it was not raced.

    Ah, it was a V6 with 4 valves per cylinder then (2 intake-valves and 2 exhaust-valves) for I see 12 exhaust-tubes... and 12 carburators (or 6 double)... that's complicated, now onder it never raced

    Yes, a V6 with 24 valves. The Dino 166 F2 engine was Lucas fuel injected, no carburettors.
