hey all, im in this dilemma right now. Regulation change left us with air cooled engines completely obsolete, you can guess the stock of water cooled sudams wasn’t enough and now we’re in a situation where a water cooled sudam costs 3k-4k.
Im evaluating what are my options. Because the bottom end and crankshaft is the same for the air cooled engines, I can re-use them. and for the cylinder, I found someone who sells an X30 cylinder very cheap, and I have a few sleeves from the sudam, my idea was to use the casing and the sudam sleeve. The question is, will this hybrid work? The X30 sleeve has slightly different port timings than the one of the Sudam however.
my limited knowledge tells me it probably wont fit, but im unsure still. I would like to hear from someone who has had the chance to work with both engines, cause if this works then it would save me huge amounts of $$$
