I have been collecting some engine parts for the buggy:

aluminum case- pre clearanced
82mm crank
94 B mahles
true arc clips
Engle FK8 and coated engle lifters
straight cut gears
german 009 and a compu fire module
taylor 10mm wires
1.5 qrt sump
26mm oil pump
12.5 lbs flywheel
CE power pulley

I need to get the rotating assembly balanced and sort out the top of the engine. The original plan was for level 5 ACN heads and 44IDF's.

Now i'm thinking CB min wedges and 48IDA's or possibly turbo.... decisions Confused

Little lax on updates, new KTM 1090R has kept me busy since I picked the bike up in February... but there have been signs of life in the garage.

After returning from the machine shop for balancing, my pile of engine parts has turned into a smaller pile of parts.

I've been waiting for CB to have a sale to offset the weak CDN dollar. This weekend they had the memorial day sale so I ordered a set of fully optioned out panchitos and some CB 1.4 rockers.

Other than push rods I now have everything I need to finish the engine




Lined the pan with a foam type gasket




Got the body bolted to the pan and started fitting the nose. Struggling to decide what I want the dash layout to look like



And that's about it for updates

Got the coil mounted and ran a test fit of the headers.... stuff actually fit Very Happy







And after much filing and grinding... i gave up on the csp valve covers. Tried the empi's from the 60 beetle and they fit like a glove over the CB 1.4 rockers
