    Oh yes, very nice. Like the twin carb setup and the pipe, probably good for a considerable amount more than the rated stock eight horsepower too!

    IMG_2566.JPGThe girdle holds the barrel from separating from the lower end of the block. These engines are early style, pre copper head and Vintage 820 blocks, when ported there is not much material to hold the cylinder from separating at the port belt, the girdle holds it together. 610 West Bends do not have the problem, they have a smaller bore so there is a lot more material to hold the cylinder together. The new style 820's and 610's have a beefed up cylinder especially in the port belt area, it does not seem to be a problem in the new engines. I also use girdles on my Power Products as they were notorious for separation.

    Gotcha! I did not know this. So a Chrysler Power Bee would not have this problem? Do you know how long or what years Chrysler produced these engines? Will you be at Joe’s this weekend Louie?

    West Bend Aluminum Co. introduced the 820 in Dec. 1961, the 610 came out Feb. 1962, West Bend engine division sold to Chrysler Marine in 1965, Chrysler sold to Brunswick (Mercury Marine) They changed the name to US Marine, in 1991 Brunswick sold to Wisconsin Oven Co., name changed again to United States Motor Power. All the engines are the same as the first ones produced in the '60's with some exceptions, ignition, carburetor, better flywheel, improved rods etc. Power differences for different applications was done through compression ratio (head gasket thickness) and ignition timing. The engines that are produced today by US Motor are the brainwork of Dave Bonbright who worked with US Motor on the design, They have the same exterior dimensions, but have an improved stronger block, pistons, crankshafts, heads, intake manifolds etc. are all interchangeable with the original engines. Different pto variations are available for karting applications (stepped, 10 deg. taper, 3/4 inch straight) The new engines have a nikasil cylinder liner. The race versions, Copperhead, Vintage 820 have the large intake reed manifold, the large Tillotson HR184 carb. Horstman style head, boost ported, single ring piston. In stock version the industrial engine is bullet proof, the race version is also although they are used under strenuous applications. The original version of the 820 in stock version will not need a girdle setup, they are a very stout engine.
    Who and where is Joe?
