Re: Pressure fed 3 bearing engine

Here we go, from A I T S!

For info, Nick Turley also recently said "There were some 3 bearing 1 and a half cranked engines, we put one in the German Speedy as its engine was missing".

He's going to try and get a photo of the engine.

Re: Pressure fed 3 bearing engine

I have a 3 bearing pressure fed engine to sell , it came with my nippy many years ago .
The engine is stripped down , I had the crankshaft crack tested and it was fine .
aluminium sports sump with the 9 E cast into it , tulip valves but 3 vales are missing in the Block , Dante aluminium sports head , sports canshaft.
Crankcase is un drilled where the oil jets normally go .
All the bits seem to be there apart from 3 valves.
White metal looks good in the con rods and crank looks fine .
con rods are for floating pins .
Strange that they used white metal in these engines, i thought 3 bearings would have had shells.
I have kept the nippy carb , manafold and head as I am using them on my nippy.
I am looking for offers over £3000.00 for this very rare engine that must be a late nippy or speedy engine.

cant see how to attach a photo of all the parts laid out.
