Interesting that you WOULD'NT be the first. I've had some customers order TWO of the same engines.
One for "SHOW" (living room) and one for "GO" (in their car). :D

Doesn't it seem a shame to put icky oil in and run it with dirty exhaust going through the pipes.

However jewels aren't much good in a safe!

Very nice Joe.

I agree with Mr. Miller :)

Somebody asked me if this engine has the round "America Roadster" style deep oil sump....... Take a look.
