Fit a quart into a pint pot. I mean how do they get a 200 barrel to fit a small block? I know you can machine the spigot down. But what about the spacing of the rods? There was an Indian kit that did much the same. But that involved twisting the rods and drilling out the holes in the fins as far as I can remember. Never seemed like a particularly good idea to me.

Exactly as you said with the spigot and enlarge the holes for the studs.

Little Mike has one on his LI - not a Gori though.
Did you have to do that?

yes it is a proper 200. 200 barrel, spigot turned down to fit 150 casings, stud holes in barrel opened up to fit, and the studs wiggled onto the barrel, and a head made to suit. ive seen 1 on an Italian import , they call them (pardon my Italian) "bambino duecentino". this was an old style conversion, the Gori is along the same lines I think (never seen one) hast la fuego dedion button. :lol:
