A mongrel.
« on: 11 Jan 2017 at 18:29 »
Please look at the photo attached (app. 1964); ignoring the antics of two teenagers (me & a pal). I'm after an aid to my vague memory of the time.
I think I put the engine from my Dragonfly in my MK3. There are some things that don't make sense.
The inlet elbows look shorter than Dragonfly images I have.
Would the magdyno fit this engine?
The front of the engine looks like the MK model.
Any other observations to remind me of what I did (or was possible) would be appreciated. Apart from swapping simple bits, my mechanical ability would not have allowed complex modifications.
Thanks, Dave.

Dave,
        The cycle parts look to be a mixture of Mark bits. The bottom end of the engine is Mark, but has Dragonfly heads and gearbox fitted.

  Regards,
                 Eddie.

Thanks Eddie. The more I think about it, the more sense it makes. I may have had carb. trouble & certainly wouldn't have chucked money after it. I didn't have a lot as an apprentice plumber.
