the new member that I was chasing the Dino for was a bit slow to secure the one on Gumtree, that Gary kindly led us to.

However LUCK works in funny ways !!

It has turned up again on EBAY, same Kart,....Hopefully it won't get away this time!!!!

Was there a Porsche kart engine? :):):)

Comment by Ross CHIPPERFIELD on Monday

and of course they make pistons Konigs use Mahle pistons

Comment by Peter Ward on Monday

Mahle cylinders are on Macio, I think they made the chrome lined cylinders for a number of manufactures.  may be Porsche?

I think you are on the money, Mark. The casting look quite sharp. It is a good looking engine. Perhaps Mahle were making the Sthil engines??

I think these originally came with a pull start - but this one was clearly owned by a serious racer and it was removed. :)

Too much old stuff, David. :) But what fun, hey. :)

The lettering "MAHLE" could only have been done in a gravity die or a pressure die casting machine. Not possible in a sand casting to that degree of detail.

Hi Anthony,
You certainly seem to turn up some cool old stuff.
Nice work.

Interesting to see the name cast in the base of the muff.

Here is what I think is a Stihl kart engine from the early to mid 60s. Similar head to that engine I posted pictures of.
