    Does anybody know how a Tipo 217 engine is marked?
    These engines were put in most of the 365 California Spiders.
    Was 217 cast on them?

    Thank you Marcel,
    Was the 217B an improved version of the 209 engine?
    I have been told that boring the 209 block to 365 specs will cause it to overheat.
    Did the 365 Californias have overheating issues?
