(Owned by Gene Kibby and built by Jim Coppedge.)
A Maely framed Ajay 500.
The engine is a 1955 long stroke AJS, and has been set up for speedway.
Oil is reccirculated and changed
every 10 laps. This is just a little less than a quart, and seems to work
Flywheels have been lightened, and the compression has been raised to 14:1 by machining .250 off the base of the cylinder and the use of a Harly Davidson piston.
The head has some extensive port and valve modifications, and is fed by a 36mm Bing carburator.
Cam shafts have been custom made by Jonhson Cams, and I have been informed that this set up has given the engine some higher revs and greater mid range torque.
Fire, comes by way of a Pal magneto.
