    OK guys, really straight forward for the more mechanically minded, but common terminology gets thrown around, and am after a fuller explanation of "fully rebuilt 1600 twin port engine"??? Mainly the reference to twin port, exactly what does this mean????

    :umm:

    I could give explaining it a go but I prefer to give credit where someone else has already made the effort.

    Soo....

    Visit here for a good explanation

    and visit here for pictures.

    In this link the single port should be option number one and twin port should be option number 3. The holes or inlet ports in the heads are what twin and single are referring to.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey Bryce, thanks for the info. :) I knew that I was leading with my chin with this question, and at least I wasn't disappointed??
    As for the previous two suspects, you have careers on stage, back stage that is:p :)

    Thats an awful thing to say about Trav!
    Still nice to know that I still have a career...

    No such thing as a silly Q.
    Just silly answers!

    Looks like I've found the right career.
