Think you just clicked on the wrong code.

Think it should be the fourth line of text.

Re: Stage four cylinder + Eibar 200 head

I have used a Spanish 200 head on a stage 4 indian barrel and it ran fine... I also used the Spanish head on a Rapido 200, That was so I could lower the compression ratio a little compared to the 9.1-1 ratio skimmed head that I had used... Again it ran well and allowed it to rev a little higher on.....

Re: 200 engine in a series 2??

You will need to fit an LI/SX clutch bell as you can't fit a brass plunger for the GP clutch bell to the LI side case, only the GP side case has this to my knowledge.

but other than what's been mentioned in the thread so far I think that's about it...

Best of luck,

Mark...

You will have to open out the holes to take 8mm studs & remove some alloy from the sidecase to fit the bracket for the JL exhaust.

You were too quick for me Soulsurfer...

What I wondered was. Would it need more machining depending on the choice of pipe???

Re: Lambretta End Plate Stud Failure?

Like the idea of upside-down nylocks.!

Re: Building a crank D.I.Y

I've had cranks built for me by Grampians in the Past, but now there are many quality cranks with 110 rod kits fitted it's less bother to just buy one of these. I have access to a press, centres & V blocks, copper mallets wedges clamps & gauges for truing up after. But I still buy ready made cranks ...
