Well the skip engine is no good! water had got in it.. But the engine I pick up for parts looks to be a good one.. I all way just left 1500cc engines as SP and single relief valve but the one I got is twin valve ;-)up but has some mag rot I can tig it up but I will strip it and see Its only a fun engine so if its a bit leaky I can live with it as its no a show car..

I was going to swap the slots out but if I can get them to fit in the body line I hope it will sit as low as this pic..but with the bags give a good drive..
