    Another 1100 Engine Mystery

    I've been going through two 1100 engines recently. I noticed something odd on the reed cages on one engine, they were bent. All three of them. I have the other one apart awaiting cylinder work and I looked at it today. All three of them are bent, also.



    I noticed that the bent spot aligns with the crankcase screw. I thought that perhaps the screws were too long. Not the case.



    Even though the screws go completely through the side of the crankcase, they're not long enough to touch the reed cage when the case is bolted up. All I can think of is that someone had screwed the screws all the way into the crankcase half when the bottom was removed--on both engines. One engine was bought from Dallas and was in pieces, one came from Minnesota and didn't appear to have been apart before.

    I'm going to clean up and straighten the reed cages before I go back together with them.

    Any thoughts?
