    Morning.
    I do not know who makes those. I have bought it from USA, but not from manufacturer.
    What is that IIRC? can You write contact info here or PM?

    There is nothing very special rare in this engine. Big bore, 4" stroke, big journals.
    My customer had "big parts" and I have just made dirty jobs (bore, hone, runners, valvejobs).
    Magneto was SBC Ronco. Recoiled and I made it to fit 8BA style engine.

    Still have to work with engine couple of days. Need to rebuilt fuel pump, make fuel lines, intake is not ready yet,....

    Sorry Auliz, I thought it was you. I do think it was someone overseas that did it. "IIRC is internet shorthand for : "If I Remember Correctly".

    Cam is "mystery" -stick, Howard.

    This oilpan is not my own production. My fits to older engines.

    Today engine will be ready. 1-2 pics still coming out.

    ah

    Ready for run. Fuel pump and shaft missing. I need to order those. I have several fuel pumps, but all older pre 1949 models. Buyer can make spark plug wirings, I was put magneto to right position, adjust points etc.
    Last pics are here.

    NB. I was hurt somebodys feeling, because I have talked here in HamB that "merc cranks are forged". He is right, Merc cranks are not forged. Those are CAST ALLOY STEEL (GGG).

    Yes, thats my own production oilpan, but it fits only pre 1949 engines. In this case, engine si 1949-53,...
