O-320-D1A arrived today
I thought a couple of pictures might be useful if you have never bought an engine before, and wondered how it is shipped.
It will be quite a while before it is started, but I have to say it is beautifully presented, as you can (just about) see from the attached pictures. It is inhibited so I wont open the bag for now.
It has arrived with a good set of records from its test run, and docs for the ancillaries that are included.
Right now it comprises:
- Superior Cylinders
- Sky-Tec Light Weight Starter
- Fuel Pump
- Primer System
- RV4 Fuel pump and dipstick mod.
- Denso 40 Amp Internally Regulated Alternator
I will probably go with the e-mag / p-mag ignition, but thought I would leave it for now, in case there are more minor mods to their system, or software updates, by the time I need them.
I wasn't planning to put a primer on it, just use the throttle pump, but now it is here I might just get seduced into installing it. What I have against it is the weight thing.
