Problem sorted. I machined down a g161 single cam distributor to suit. Simply adapted up the drive gear from the twin cam distributor to the single cam and shortened the shaft. The old distributor was stuffed anyway. It made alot of difference. It made 110hp at the wheels on my mates dyno at his wor...

Hi, I own a G200W with a points type distributor. I have discovered that the mechinal advance unit is worn out and only advances 5 degrees throughout the rev range, therefore not allowing the engine to rev properly. Since most people go with fuel injection rather than carbs I imagine someone would h...

It came with new pistons, reground cams, new valve springs, custom made extractors, ported and polished head, twin solex carburettors and a spare g200 crankshaft. It has cost me about another 700 to get it bac...

I have finally got my engine running quite well with the twin carbys, the arcing distributor doesn't seem to be affecting the performance of the engine. Now the sump is leaking and I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get a G200w sump gasket?

Gday guys, i'm the dohc_gemini bloke from the other forum. I set the cam timing up like this, the timing marks on the cam pulleys straight up and no1 cylinder on t.d.c. as the chain has no timing marks. The chain I have is probably a custom one as parts for the twin cam engines are near impossible t...
