domestic engine question
i have been reading up on some of these threads.. and i see that you can take a base 650 fuji motor and swap the jugs and pistons ect to get a 750 or 780.. now my guestion is can you do the same thing and take a 1050 and swap jugs and pstons and what not from a 1200 with out much pain?
(this is for furture refrence)

You can go 900 to 1050 with a simple top end swap. I don't know about going up to a 1200 but I suspect the stroke is different. At least none of the crank part numbers match up between a 1050 and a 1200.

900 and 1050 use a 68mm stroke crank and the 1200 is a 70mm. 900-1050 swap is easy, and is worth quite a bit of power. Look for the 009 1050 cylinders...they are the "better" ones.

thanks nut!! will keep that in mind if i do end up getting a 900!
but is it that much more power between a 900 and 1050?
here is anouther question.. say i took the 1050 out.. would the 1200 drop in or diffrent mounting points..?

The fuel injected Ficht engines have a larger flywheel housing, but otherwise they are also the same dimensions.
All will mount to the same engine mount locations.
Sometimes the exhaust manifold and pipe are laid out differently to fit different hulls, but you can often mix and match those between engines.

like i said in a earlyer post i might get a chance too get a 900 but if thats the case id could swap it to a 1050 with out too much hassle!
