Congrats! That looks like a nice engine.

I hate to see you having to take up so much space on your table, and would hate to see you wasting time sorting through the Tec stuff. If you want you can just throw them in a box and ship them to me. :bigrofl: :D ( I tried)

That's a new engine on me, im presuming that's the same Robin as in Subaru/Fuji ? , if so great engines, i have had a few of them and rarely had any bother with them, 20 year old NOS.. good catch.

What a steal on that engine.  I'm simply jealous.  There's nothing better than starting a long gone NOS engine for the first time. 

 

I haven't seen a video, yet, though.  :D
