Hi all, I’m taking quite a lot of bits and pieces to sell on the Sunday of the Rally at Old Warden (Shuttleworth), including a complete 1920 engine, three two-speed gears, lots of two-speeder bits, a usable pair of 486 Squirrel pistons, lots of other later pistons, magneto platforms, mudguards, a brand new (Wassell) repro’ Lycett saddle, a pair of trailer wheels, (10″ rims), with unused tyres, etc., etc.. If you need pistons I suggest that you bring at least a digital caliper to check on sizes and find yourself a matching pair from the dozens available. Some CASH would also be very useful ! 😀
I’m also taking another engine, a rare 1934 LFZ motor, totally stripped for your inspection and rebuilding. Lots of NEW parts included, such as main bearing rollers, big-end rollers, a full gasket set, including cylinder head, carburettor studs, a set of 16 high tensile cylinder head studs, and 16 new chrome deep cylinder head nuts. Also new are the gudgeon pins, chromed transfer port bolts, etc.. Please note that it is a 596 engine, not the 498 suggested by the engine number. The barrel is on about +.015″, and the pistons are +.030″ so the bores can have a minimum clean-up hone, and then the pistons turned down to suit them, at which time new piston rings will of course be needed. Loads of metal in the cylinders for future rebores ! £975.
