Matt, if the T90R is  1980, it would be era4

Hi Anthony this is the motor I think I saw in Dean Harrison's arms at Bolivar -- be good too see a shot of it from the ignition side. As I said I seem to remember there was a lot of black and as I remember a bit of red.

Hi Matt Cooper,

This may not be totally accurate but please see below.

T80  1973

T90  1978

T90R  1980

T91  1983

Assuming I'm close with the dates all but the T91 will be Era 3, T91 Era 4.

Only going by what I recall, may well be older than I suggest.

Comment by Stephen Moxon yesterday

Matt, I purchased my first T90 in 1978 from JP.

Comment by Mark Mansell on Monday

Matt Cooper. I campaigned a DAP T-80 bought new from Barry Beckman of Interkart Developments, Granville, from 1976 to 1978 until my big crash. Went end for end at the Londonderry track at full pelt. This is a great engine. I still have it and have used it in social meetings and games on several occasions. They were often referred to as a block of flats because of their large square cooling fins. I won a few races with it and also a 20 lap butchers picnic event at the now defunct Granville track. Bloody good engine. Good for 18,000 RPM down the straight. It made some weird noises at these speeds. But very smooth and very reliable. Hope you are happy with yours.

Hi All,

My Dad and I are chasing information on some DAP engines and was wondering if either someone could point me in the right direction for production dates, or list the years below of the following engines:





We have summised that all engines would be around Era4, but would love to know the years.

Many Thanks in advance.

Matt Cooper

Ralph / Mark,

Marta is a "Facebook" addict, and I was not impressed with some of the SH-- that she told me came from there so thought it best at the time to stay away.

However our site looks great and lets keep it clear of SH-- and full of positives and it will be great.

To those who felt I have ignored the "Friendship" requests, Sorry just a fear of the site, BUT will get around to it in the near future.


Comment by Ralph Turner on Sunday

Like you Max I went cicking and screaming to FaceBook when the news was delivered yesterday afternoon. Some great pis and video on the site for all to see.

Well done Mark.
