    Thats what I was just talking about- I was going to try it and someone above said the bottom join was different- a few years back, the bottom ends WERE different but I measured both my motors and externally they look and measure the same- and BGF advertises his needle bearings, piston pins and connecting rods for both 50 and "80"cc- (66)

    I think they may be standard now but I'm not taking both apart to measure the bottom fit- my older 66 motor just happens to have 6mm studs and thats what BGF has for his "upend"

    I'm not gonna take the gamble but the extra power would be nice if I were going to replace the 50 jug again- for only $15 more

    Maybe you could tell from the bottom jug gaskets...

    There is no replacement for displacement.

    66/80 cc replacement parts seem to be more plentiful than those for the other models.
    Does this mean that the 66/80 cc models fail more often and need more parts to repair them? No, I think that the 66/80 cc models are more popular.
    Just something to think about and take into consideration.
