It's certainly an ugly brute and would surely win the booby prize in any competition. Looks decidedly european. Is it perhaps some other variant of the DKW that's been mistakenly branded a bantam and had a bantam engine thrown in it?? It's weird whatever it is.......

And just look at the other Bantam Bits in their shop! Including 1/8 BSP petrol taps (with flange for seal).

Cheers once more for a good find Stoo, I`d missed them. Ordered two too, to put in my stores.

I`ve always found George very helpful and quick to answer Qs + items arrive double-quick.

Thanks, I`ll get a couple of them when they arrive.

Slides/clips arrived yesterday in good time. Very slight machining burr which cleaned up a treat and straight into the carb body on my `62 D1 on the bench. Perfict fit! This engine arrived without a top on the carb but sourced one and a spring. Just the needle required now.

I may ask George what alloy they are made from. Will they be sacrificial as with the originals, to save the carb body. Looking at the moderate wear & tear on this forty quid engine, with what looks like the original carb, there`s no wear in the body.

We've seen that before. Not that tempting IMO - especially at that price.

I suspect they are like the Atom in that they are designed for single magnet flywheels, so need the points left in service to ensure they are not overloaded.
