  12. long time

    hi every one its been ages since l was in here,my poor old raider went an through the con rod and piston also the crank ,did have a look at new prices for parts and was shocked the crank worked at at the time £160 uk pounds so pushed it in the back of the shop an did not bother , but getting fire wood moved has been a pain since then , so looked around again and have found a k241t engine thats missing the carb etc ,but the rest of it is ok ,so now l have found a ray of light ,the old lady will be got out and with luck running again soon ,am hoping to build one engine from the both ie flywheel etc so that l can still use the electric start etc , and yes lts good in away to be back in the forum with a horse again, weeeeeeee hope regards wes
