KLO engine specs

Post by msindel » Fri Mar 03, 2017 11:20 pm

Can someone tell me the differences between a KLC and a KLO?
Same crank?
Cam opposite direction KL or ?
Same block as KLC?
Distributor geared for opposite direction but otherwise same?
Flywheel?
Carb # ?

1. The O in KLO means opposite rotation.
Difference between a KL and KLC is bigger carb, bigger intake, lighter flywheel, way more duration in the cam, Probably more but those are what I can think of now.

Thanks Jim

Kind of what I thought...

Is the crank the same?

The crankshaft itself is. The gear on the crankshaft has angled gears. They are angled the other way on an opposite rotation engine.
