put pipes on and the old mk1 tank to see how it sat
ive got a nice mk2 black mint tank to go one when its done
top exhaust will need to be modded so it doesnt point up like that the mk1 tail piece wont go with it like that
it will point straight out instead

Hi Eyrey! Very nice project!! In an earlier thread, you mentioned that you bought 4 barrels for the v-due engine. I'm looking for barrels, pistons and heads. Do you have some in spare for sale?!

I look forward to receive cylinders I bought from you Gary!

Does anyone have some information on porting these cylinders? I have thought about making a radius from the cylinder liner to the transfer boost port, and open up the boost port a little bit. I also want to enlarge the piston skirt windows to match the cylinder liner openings and make a window for the transfer boost port.

Does anyone have some experience with this? See pictures of vdue cylinder below.

Looks very good! If you run the same set-up as me with the oil pump, remember to use oil check valves into the carbs also. Unless, I'm not sure if you get proper lubrication of the big end bearing due to imbalance of the oil supply from the pump. Also warm up slowly before revving ;)
