Anyone who's posted here have any objections? I will give you credit for anything I use. :)

I got the message and the pics, all of them! Thank you! I'm really going to be able to use a lot of them for the page. I've been busy at work and have been meaning to send you a reply.

I'll post the revised page with the pics as soon as I can. :)

Just some interresting info

I sold a motor to a friend who`s 2L packed up

We replaced the Flywheel, Silencer, tinware of his bay window
and fitted the 2L jetted carbs on the 1800 motor and I was stunned how this motor was pulling

I helped him to fit the motor and when the float bowls were full of fuel it purred like a kitten as these motors all were bench run before they were sent out from the factory
Timing was spot on new coil and plugs was working great

After I removed the Silencer and saw that it was bech run before I just filled the oil and turned the Key :D and there it fired up
As I said it almost feel that it was running better than the 2L I had here at home but then again the 2L has got some miles on but still
The 127 Ran much better than anticipated

Any one wants one :D
