G'day Max,

That engine looks like a Komet K71 which was devised & distributed originally by Lynn Haddock in the USA for  their specific piston port class.

Attached is a history of the project & some drawings of the later variant called KPV.KOMET%20K71%20Karting%20Engine%20Background%20and%20Development.docxwww.kometengine.com.htm

One of the best vintage meets on the calendar.

I picked Dino 288 and need some parts. Is it still possible to get them for this vintage kart?

Thanks, it is an old IAME Piston port that I have had given to me and I wasn't sure.

Now I know it is close to 100, I will put some effort into it.

Hi Max I worked it out to be 96.8 cc using those measurements.

Comment by Max Laybutt on December 9, 2018 at 10:52

OK so I am no tech genius so correct me on this plese guys,

STROKE 49.83

BORE 49.9Is

Is that 96 / 98cc approx.?

(Vernier measurements so they are not that accurate?)
