Mag weighs half of aluminum and if it's mag you'll know it the minute you pick it up.


Yes I know this, but the engine is not being disassembled from the tower.  I feel like it might be lighter when we carry the entire engine.

Hmm...  Might as well separate the powerhead because the mating flange might be the only place you're willing to expose some clean metal for the analysis.  Where else could you aim the machine to see bare tower metal?  Taking it apart and weighing it may be the best answer, and it's been taken apart before (1978 rebuild mentioned).  You might find some cool letter stamped message inside or on the gearcase!??

We were thinking inside the exhaust snout.  It has never seen exhaust so only has some saw dust near the rear.  I will update when we have our findings.

Got some cool documentation and parts from Quincy the other day.  Already framed the instruction paper.  Plan to install the advance lever and timing stop bracket on a 20ci Quincy deflector I plan to build in the near future.
