You can make a whole billet 1200 bit by bit :)
or at least an A series in bottom end by making
the crankcase separate from the bore casings
like the ingenious Crossley Engine :D
then you can use any gearbox with a backing plate change
that also strengthens bottom and the top block sections.

Yeah Crossley really was a genius with the mighty tin engine
Head and block was only 14.8lbs!!!! and was OHC gear driven!!

I guess the only thing for the GA16de engine is if you want to run
a chain or belt as I feel the Z5 belt cam gears could be a good
upgrade to avoid running a chain unless you want to.

Ive yet to work out the GA valve angles compared to the Z heads.

some of his cars surely encouraged many brands like the datsuns with their small, economical, good performance and reliable. It was different thinking but as long as the old tin motor had proper coolant used which at that time was a real problem. I still wonder why they didnt use the Crossley into Indian like Bike frames would have been easier than building cars.


Matthew just found out the Ga16DS doesnt have the VVT to keep things cleaner and retro

some porting, maybe gone overboard on the size but results are not shown, Peru is like the phillipines
where they carb anything and everything

It takes a little saving but anyone can have one (CNC).

Just motivate to save.

I will sell you the pair of seats in that image. I have a spare set for myself. Mind that they need foam repair on the driver side bolsters.

Hey thanks for the offer. I may take you up on that! How comfy are they with a nearly on the floor seat position?

My other choice was Four Runner seats, I have a set in my 510 'goon and they're super comfy.

I could drive 300 miles in these and feel ok getting up.

I love the adjustable lumbar and bolsters on the back rest.

If your compressor housing is wider than your block, fun times are ahead!
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson
