Another one lives

Post by JERSEYMAN »

Well, there’s a hard to find 78cc Marston barrel repaired, I’ve never done this before as I usually source a serviceable part but I haven’t seen one of these barrels up for sale in at least the last five or six years, they fail due to rust building up over time until the outer water jacket pops, this one was perfect except for this so a repair was possible and at least I had the opportunity to clean out the rust from the waterways. This means another Marston OA lives, when it’s all assembled and running I’ll post some pics.
