Replacement engine

Post by p7rns »

I'm looking for a replacement engine for my 64 Split, it currently has a (broken) 1500 single port.

Without having to upgrade anything, (gearbox/brakes) what size engine can I put in and can anybody recommend or have experience of a good engine builder/supplier ?

Tell us what's wrong with the single port. Are the heads ok? Is it possible to rebuild your existing engine?
