I think people do use them in later engines. There's no reason why not.

They are a little heavy. Depends what you what your engine to do.. Nothing wrong with them. Weight can be a good thing.

Tourer Bazza?
That's not going anywhere...

Both are interchangeable, I have both types and you will not notice any difference.

I cant understand why they made the later ones thinner,unless it was something to do with the machining of the layshaft.Making it easier to hold the layshaft in some kind of lathe when they were new.
