Karrier WO6

Recommended Posts

Hi, Can anyone help me...I've started to restore my Karrier WO6 and I have started to re-build the engine, butI have no manual for Dorman engine. Could anyone shed some light on the value clearances? The head number is 16212 with an engine number of 20702 (1929)

 

Also, the head is painted black...is this correct? The rest of the engine is in it's bear aluminum, although when cleaning the engine I have found, under the grime, a sage green paint on the aluminum. Should it be painted this green or left in it's bear form?

 

Cheers

Gavin

Here are the pics of the engine as promised - somewhat late!! Probs with downloading photos from my phone to the computer!! The gold looking paint on the aluminum is actually the sage green colour.

 

P.s. I can send more pics if required.

 

Many thanks

Gavin

How did you get on with this engine? Our museum may be getting its hands on a 4JU soon, which may need some attention.
