I converted my speedster to electric last winter, and I'm selling the old engine, exhaust, Raby upright cooling kit, 15 gallon gas tank, dual Weber carbs.  Basically everything except the transmission.  There is about 4,000 miles on the engine.  Compression is a little low in one of the cylinders and it's burning oil, so probably a cracked ring in that cylinder.  Full details on my speedster build can be found here: http://chriskate.net/speedster/ with LOTS and LOTS of pictures.

The picture from when I was building things.  It's a little more dirty now, but everything is there.  The engine is a Type IV, 2056.

Looking for $2,000 for everything plus shipping.

Who did the electric conversion?

Do you have any pictures?

Click on the link he provided.  Very interesting and detailed build thread.  Well done!  Glad you didn't believe that 40 hour CMC build schedule.  You need a photo of your daughter driving it now!  I have photos of my son in a car seat watching me dismantle the donor car and clean the pan. (Argh, he'll be 30 in June this year).

Wish engine was closer to NW FL - exhaust $700, Raby T4 conversion kit $800, Carbs $600 - so $2k good deal.

Another note for anyone interested in this engine.  There is no flywheel included.  I needed this for the EV conversion.  Also, there have been a number of questions on the specific internal details on the heads, cam, etc, etc.  I'm sorry, but I did all this and was really into the specs on things way back 15+ years ago, but I don't remember all the details and I didn't write them down anywhere.  Jake did a bunch of stuff, but I honestly don't remember all the details.

I am waiting for the engine to arrive. My engine guy will be finished with the 2110 (now 2276) out of the Puma next week. It has brand new CB 44 IDF carbs, Mahle thick wall 94's with total seal rings, Engle 120 cam. full flowed case fully balanced rotating assembly. 9.5:1 CR. 044 ultra mag heads with 44/37.5 valves . He is telling me it will be a screamer 1500-6500 rpm 180Hp engine. Brand new A-1 sidewinder 1 5/8" exhaust. I hope I will have pics to post of the rebuilding process and the cam run in soon.  Not sure how I am going to proceed with Chris's Type IV. Thinking of maybe going a little bigger displacement on this, how about a 2.5L Type IV. If anyone has interest in ether engine the prices will be more reasonable than you would think. You can have some choices on the type IV build if you wish.
