    We are off and rolling!

    Click here for Silver/Black/"BG" engine ID and information

    Click here for Blue Diamond engine ID and information

    Click here for a list of parts and part numbers still available

    I will be adding more links to this page as we get the other engine threads going. I would ask that we not get the information between engine designs confused by asking lots of questions in each of the threads. Additional knowledge ABOUT each engine in each thread, and more pictures or anecdotes are of course always welcome, and wanted.

    Keep on Binderin',

    Here is a video I found of a restored GRD engine that shows correct mountings of hardware and apparently the correct color.

    Here is a photo of the 233 in an M-1-4. The color is wrong, but otherwise looks correct. Note the special intake and exhaust manifolds.

    I might be wrong, but I was taught that an L-6 engine was a flat head, valve in block. A valve in head engine was an OH-6 engine
