The building looked like it was - or was inspired by - Wright's Prairie Style.I don’t believe he designed this building but there are many of his designs in the area. A hotel, and I believe his personal residence are a couple I have encountered.
unless I misunderstood the question, and you were referring to how he blended buildings into their surroundings. And found my car and this building followed the concept.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Dropped the drive train in, took the 1000 mile south route to KC, then worked solid for the last weeks at the new job, driving the spider to work, putting another 3500 miles on her. Not a hiccup. It's good to know you can do this yourself and be more reliable than the factory tech.Thank you for the vote of confidence. So you say the thermostat is on the back of the block? Thought I saw somewhere it was under the intake manifold. I have installed the harness to the madness ECU on my previous Abarth and it was super tight! Can’t imagine getting anything bigger than that connector out of that spot. Do you happen to have a photo of the thermostat location? If I can see how it’s situated I can figure it out without actually being able to see it. Again thank you so much for responding.
I haven’t been on here for a couple days just found your response. Thank you so much for the pictures and suggestions!Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

You wanted some pics of the thermostat on the rear of the 1.4. Here's some pics from the back of the original motor, removed and on the stand. Hopefully they'll help. It'll be tight - but I still wouldn't let the dealer service it. You'll have to do a lot of removal on the firewall. Thermostat is under the casting below the vacuum pump (round "puck") that runs off the cam.
Frankly, might be easier to drop the tranny and do it.....nah. Sounds like something FIAT would direct in their manual. See last pic, lol. It's a clear shot.... once the tranny out of the way.
