Oudshoorn motor

My dad is also busy rebuilding the 700 motor for the Oudshoorn BMW.
The other enginecase cracked and the cilinders were made too short, so now a different case, which has not been completely chopped and a different set of /5 cilinders that were made to fit the /2 engine with studs going from the case upto the heads.
/2 racing motors have the problem of breaking cilinders, this is the reason of the long studs.

Dyna electronic ignition, /5 dynamo, 700LS pistons, R69 crank......and a lot more parts that do not belong together.

  1. Hi, would be interested to know which /5 cylinders you used? I am assuming 60/5 would be the closest bore size?
    Also do you think the earlier engine (/2) could be set up with the /5 crank and internals etc?
