Help! Help Anyone ever seen a #2 marked cylinder with only 1 side cut

Post  happydad on Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:48 pm

Has anyone ever seen a #2 marked cylinder with only 1 cut on the cylinder inside, see pic.


marked #2 on the side of cylinder


dual cuts on inside of cylinder plus 2 extra smaller cuts on each side. sorry its not a good inside shot. #4 ??

anyone seen incorrectly marked cylinders before? I have seen several unmarked cylinders. Identified by internal cuts on inside of cylinder only. The guide on CEF for cylinders is very good and accurate as far as I know.

As far as I know, all #2 cylinders were single by-pass, fitted to Babe & Golden Bees.

Rod: All #2 cylinders? I have a bunch of #2 cylinders I purchased in bulk from the "cox boys", ESP, or cocengines.ca and they look more like #4 cylinder with dual thin slits.
    Someone please explain this to me?

I do think we're seeing a lot of hybrid cylinders out there, either post-Cox modifications or late Estes "couldn't be bothered" cylinders that were not so closely scrutinized.
"Traditionally", #2 cylinders were single bypass.
