    So this engine my brother found me at the scrap yard is not quite the same as the china girls ive been tuning over the years.This engine has a billet cover over the chain sprocket.The cylinder was slightly ported it seems and in kind of a v taper u can see in pics.The timing in degrees duration is .EX-140°,TR-110°, IN-120° Duration...slightly advanced intake it seems and the cylinder from bottom mating surface to top is 70.56mm tall where another china motor was 69.42mm tall with stock 110°Duration intake.It also has a much wider transfer area from the lower casing to match the cylinder no grinding required.So i just wonder where does this engine come from and is the crank possibly been balnced...it has a Z-L connecting rod.And i noticed its a solid crank with the two balance holes at top but two more farther down closer to center a lot smaller never seen this before. And these engine stamps all over u will see in pick same as on a china head i had gotten elsewhere.

    That is not a billet cover.
    Those are old motors from 2008
    JL You aren't going to find any more of those.

    Sorry you're right not billet but maybe chrome plated steel? Just a heavy solid chrome part unlike the rest of the plates covers.And what about the balancing.. i have not seen a crank with these extra holes in it before... there like maybe 1/4 " diameter and down in kind of a mid positon cannot tell if there weights in it or just holes as i have not split the motor.You can barely see these holes in the last pic... any ideas? And I am just trying to track down where it came from to see what the seller claims it has done to it or what if any performance mods it claims.
