I HAVE JUST FOUND OUT what the MYSTERY HEADS are on the Harley WLA bottom end that was posted on this site a long while back. Here is a reminder of the mystery engine:

tumblrwheelsandheels ... and here is a picture of the whole bike: mysteryenginetoyotau ...NICE IGUANA!

Thanks to: GEARHEAD

The cylinder heads are from a 1960-1961 Toyota "U engine". This was a 698cc air-cooled flat twinthat was used to power theToyota UP10 People's Car.

Some have suggested this is a Harley WLA bottom end converted to OHV using a set of tappets from Moto Guzzi flat single.

Final iteration, in classic style ............................................................................... The engine is a MAG, as used in a 1936 Condor and a 1939 Motosacoche (see pictures above) . Anssi (from Finland) tells me he found the engine in Switzerland, where it was originally used as a fire engine water pump. The heads are home-made by him. Gearbox is BSA, He says,"...the magneto & clutch are from my old Harley parts. I modified that Fairbanks Morse ignition angle."

Gustavo Salvador's new Engine: Gustavo lives in Argentina. He cast the crankcases himself and made the con-rods. The heads are from an Isard car (1959-1965). These cars are powered by a 584cc boxer (flat twin) or a 688cc flat twin made in the Argentina plant of the German manufacturer Hans Glas GmbH. Presumably, the new v-twin engine will displace 688cc.
