Hi Bill,
Once I've had 3 of these V-twins, one had a bigger prop mounting system (same as on the 3cyl.) and another one had red anodised cyl. heads. Unfortunately we can't have it all and sold or trade the other two to invest in other interesting engines.
regards,
Danny

I have not ran this engine, still NIB but I have heard that they are great runners. Anyone want to guess on this one, not really rare but very good quality.

Bill,

That's a nice one, I once had the Fox Eagle gold head NIB but sold that to have funds for buying another engine.

Wow, very nice. It actually has me wanting to start collecting engines like these. I know, I'd pretty late to the game but that collection you have there sure is nice.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

This Merco 35 Mk(?) of the 'Black Streak' series, is probably of a later date than JMP's '49.....I don't feel certain of the Merco model chronology though....

Hi Bob,

1- preferably at home Belgium (not enough money to be accepted in the US)
2- not enough time lately to go on holidays (have to work harder for less)
3- Small van (depending on type) will do i think. (havn't tried it myself yet)

Hope this will be an answer to Your questions Bob.

regards,
Danny
