They obviously imported them from Australia by ship. They would have been hanging from a chain. He did a wonderful job of restoring them but if you look closley in the third photo you can still see a couple of barnicles. :wink: :wink:

Momec and Momec 2 would have worked it out

Think of the engine as one , camshaft still only traveling half crank speed

Split firing into 45 degree intervals

firing order 1 5 3 7 4 8 2 6

:D
IT IS ALL A RACE AGAINST TIME.
TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE.
