Default Re: Must see this

Looks like it might be expansion water-cooled (the black tank under the top bar)..

The three section tank confuses me... specially since one section is pressurised (see pump push on LHS) and the other two dont appear to be... two I could understand.. but three?

It looks like there is a direct oil feed to the crank case (middle back) from one of the tank sections...

The only thing I can think of is this is a petrol-parafin motor with constant loss oiler

that would account for 3 filler caps (petrol, parafin, oil) and the pressurised tank - most likely parafin

it'd be slow revving - torque more than hp... but it would be nice to ride, if a little hairy.
