It's hard to believe now what the production figures were, you realise how many engines must still be lying in drawers, attics and garages around the world!
Wish I could find a few of them!

Well, thy explains why the pistons have a "pip" in the center. It's where they remove the piston from the material when finished on rhe lathe. I think Kim was wondering why his piston had that mark on his .051
