Dave, whether it has a cross-drilled crankshaft or not, I think that will be the least of his problems restoring this 1100 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

They are a bugger to try and repair when like that.
I want one for wall art. That would be perfect.

Interesting engine, I've heard about some early 1100 / 1300's having 312 thick flange blocks and S size rods / big ends, and there has been discussions on the forum regarding this with much input from Alan, but it's the first time I've seen pics of this arrangement.
