CHOPPER 2. ENGINE

The '66 T120 motor had been dry and unturned for anything up to 30 years and was siezed. With a lot of presuasion it came apart and really wasnt that bad, all bearings were good, bores just needed a hone and new piston rings. The gearbox was pretty rusty and i had to swap a few gears from another i had in bits. I added a belt drive to the clutch and a Hunt mag and swapped the head for a TR6 single carb to keep things simple.

They do Steve but i really dont like the new ones that mount on the rev counter drive, doesnt look quite so odd with the exhausts on, stay tuned...
