Looking for engine

#1 Post by John Hearn » Mon Jun 14, 2021 3:00 am

A friend is looking for 587/3 motor Nr 99080.
The engine was mounted in a 904 originally raced in Europe.
Does anybody know of it's whereabouts?

John, a suggestion...
Change the title of this thread to "Looking for 904 Four Cam Engine 99080"

Often people do not click on a title to get the full story and since your request is so simple it can be made in only a few words and seen at a glance by the casual visitor giving you greater exposure.

John - I recently checked with Jacques LeFriant, Jeff Adam’s and Mike Smith to see if they had run across this motor. None had.

Your friend was going to check with Karl Hloch.
