Title: What engine was used in a M2?
Post by: oliverchris on July 25, 2011, 10:53:06 AM
Wondering if parts are still available? Manifold and internal engine parts?

The engine is a Hercules WXLC-3. There are sources for parts but I have not as yet had to source engine parts. I have seen used manifolds on ebay in the past.

Jerry Biro may have some parts. Bob might remember from when we were there.

Embarrassingly, I haven't done anything on my restoration since the last entry on that webpage.   :(

However, I did just order engine parts from Jerry Biro ( http://www.herculesparts.com/ )--camshaft, connecting rods, and piston rings.  I've previously purchased an engine block, pistons, wrist pins, tappet assemblies, and other assorted parts.  The previous time I ordered, he did not have a carburetor or camshaft, but his inventory changes--as evidenced by the fact that he did have the camshaft this time around.  I've gotten good service out of them.  The only problem I have is that their working hours match mine, so it makes ordering a bit difficult...   ;)

As should be obvious, I'm basically Johnny Cashing an engine from them--one piece at a time.  Unfortunately, it is costing me more than a dime.  :)
