I was always glad and surprised to see the 2.3-16 get such a following in the US. Purely because, here in the UK, what we see from the US is the typical large displacement, low specific output...

Hello

On our side of the pond we have a 2.3-16 and 2.5-16. The 2.3 was replaced with the 2.5 in 1988. They are more or less identical apart from increased stroke (I think, this is from memory) of...

Thanks, so to repot back:

Motor mounts are new.
