I ripped mine out...cause the manifold was done and no replacements are to be found other than that they are great engines similar and or better(some say) than the common atomic 4

I was about to rebuild mine but bailed.

what info are you looking for? I saved some pertinent links a while back if your interested
you have a lot of info there...gaskets to go is where you get the new copper head gasket made as if steel it will corrode in no time

you also have a page for parts, where to get the electronic ignition, also the place that sells the harvester overhaul kit with pistons, rings etc...

and exhaust drawing for a dry stack system I beleive and other links for the pumps and whatnot...

hope it helps
