Engine progress- My 67 T120 LSR

I got my cases and parts back from Wes over at Four Aces Cycle and got to work the last couple evenings. He took care of degreeing my racing cams and lightened timing wheels for me as well as all the machine work: head work, balancing the crankshaft, relieving the high compression pistons, tumbling the cases and polishing the covers for me. I went through the transmission and got it right, you have to love a rebuilt transmission, solid shifts through all four gears!
I had to modify my case a bit to allow a larger than stock drive gear to fit in there. And I couldn't help myself I had to jump ahead a tad and test fit the Bob Newby racing belt drive. It should perform as good as it looks!

Some work done, and a lot more to go! I can't wait to see this take shape and find its home in the frame I have going as well!

Put a piece of bicycle intertube over your rods so they dont bang on the cases, dont forget to take them off when you put on the cylinders.

Looking fantastic. I'm also banging my head against a wall, when I was changing sprockets on my old T140 notching the case for clearance never occurred to me for the larger sprocket!
