Re: Konny and Konig engines

Howard, hopefully a considered opinion and not a seed of doubt planted to cause my project to fail before it starts?

Re: Oil catchment

Its a known fact that the stigma that sidecars dumped oil was years ago when the Classics of Today were the culprits.
ALL other classes of outfits have to have catchment trays so there is no reason why a current Classic outfit should not have to be fitted with them also

Re: renwick konig

We could change the rules but we don't want to. We're quiet happy as things are. :D :D Absolutely, Simon I agree with you, you don't want to change the rules. You've changed or bent them enough to suit yourselves with your conventional outfits to get the best out of them. What, with 13" wheels...

Re: Windle Konig

What they are doing is exactly what Doug Willey told me not to do when we raced ours. You should not warm up a Konig motor as they are very difficult to keep cool in a sidecar with a limited supply of cool water as opposed to being used in a boat where there is an endless supply. As the radiator on...
