I like the corvair-style belt drive and nicely made injector housings. This engine will probably make a lot of power.

This motor belongs to a friend of mine over here. This motor only runs to 6kRPM's, but fan (belt) reliability has not been an issue since he added the 2 gold tensioners.

Funny too, we had talked about using a flat multi-rib belt vs. V-belt that his motor has. We also discussed adapting this setup to a flat 6. Non-original, but for better cooling...
Anyone who'd be seriously interested? Wouldn't be extremely cheap, but it would be nowhere near the price the guy from South Africa (?) wants for his copy of the Porsche flat fan setup.
