Just do it Keith, buy another and get in to it!Keith.P wrote:I have wanted a Turner off and on for some years, but like other bigger engines I have had over the years, it all comes down to lack of space, I think I even have a R2 book about.
I used to go for the flat twins, like the Norman T300 and the PU8, it makes a change doing something different ones in a while.
Its all looking good so far.
Because of the weight and space issues, I procrastinated for well over a week and risked losing it in the process.
Getting in to it now however, I can understand why there are so many more collectors of vintage stationary and marine engines than there are of vintage outboards, at least in Australia anyway.
Doing this also brings me back to my younger days when road registered race cars and regular high hp engine builds were my thing. I just wish I hadn't let go of all my tools, cranes, benches, wash down units etc ie as working on this would be so much easier.
An ST R3M would be nice! Go for it mate.
