I acquired this engine from the original owner who parked it in the summer of 1968. It was a running engine at the time of disassembly 55 years ago. The engine mounts front and rear look really good and the cylinder decks look very runnable.
I inspected cases for damage. The only noticeable things I found was a broken screw in distributor hole, voltage regulator mount shaved and two of the primary cover mounting holes threads are oversized.
Oil pump is in great shape and is correct for 1948. It has very nice distributor drive gear, idler gear, cam and breather. please see all pics. Also has very nice aluminum Lifter blocks and complete lifters which are original.
Flywheels are in very nice shape as well as connecting rods I would advise inspecting all pieces before running engine. Both pinion and Sprocket have the correct bearings and are complete. I would advise cleaning before use. Case races also look really nice and runnable. Engine turns over freely, once cam cover is installed it gets tighter, parts requiring cleaning, It currently has no gaskets installed so it must be gone through. oil pump is installed but needs gaskets.
Engine has been reassembled with all parts it was together with, I only opened it up to inspect so buyer could inspect pictures and bid confidently.
Feel free to ask questions and please inspect all pictures. here is a chance to own a very nice early Panhead.
