Re: Kinmont brakes

I had a chance to buy a set of four 25 years ago for $750.00. What scared me off was the fact that one backing plate was missing the wheel cylinder.

Unusual cylinder heads

Hello, Can anyone identify these cylinder heads. I have a pair and I believe they are pretty war, judging from the single water outlet.

Re: Oil pump questions

42 Merc, I mis identified the crank as a "59". This crank has two oil holes on the rod journal. Would you recommend an insert motor over a full floater?

Re: Best way to clean vintage aluminum finned heads

I usually use a product the aircraft guys use, Alumiprep 33. It is 33% phosphoric acid, wear gloves, follow directions and it will look new. I buy mine from Wick's aircraft in Highland, Il.
