    The short engine is often purchased as a replacement unit in situations where the cylinder head is serviceable. It is a good idea before installing this newly built unit to question what made the original fail. A couple of common causes of bottom end failings are;

    • Incorrectly set carburettor, Bore wash is a very common cause of bottom end failure. This can be caused by a carb in need or an overhaul or by the mixture being set incorrectly. The bores glaze which causes poor pressure readings but also allows fuel to then breach the rings and dilute the oil.
    • Incorrectly set tiimng. Another common cause, can have catastrophic results.

    This item is strictly collection only.

    If you would like to have a courier collect your engine this may be possible but we no longer package or transport the engines.
