Douglas Engine No.77033 for Sale
« on: 01 Jun 2014 at 06:59 »
I have a Douglas overhead valve engine for sale. Engine number is 77033. The engine is complete with magneto but the timing cover is missing. I have had the engine for over 30 years and it is time for someone to use it! I am open to all offers. Location is Melbourne, but I able to help with shipping if required. Photos attached.

Yes! The flange is fixed at the rear end and sealed with a copper/asbestos washer. (now using an asbestos substitute) The forward end has a sliding tophat ring. This is best sealed with gasket cement coated string to ensure an air tight joint and allows for alloy crankcase expansion moving the cylinders apart with heat. Chris.
