Dave Moore and Rob Selvy are stepping up and offering oem case repair. I guess Dave is buying the required tooling to make this happen. So that's a plus

For those interested Pete @ hybrid engineering has been repairing cases for as long as he has been building 250R engines. He already has everything to do the job including being a skilled machinist and welder. He is also fairly local to most people in the Pacific northwest.

Boss was going to have those case made in China or Taiwan.

If this is true, they are making a huge mistake. The Chinese don't make a worthy product, of any sort.

Has anyone talked to Eddie? Making the molds for these halves is 80% of effort. Who owns the molds?

Here's what Arlan had to say. Maybe Eddie did in fact decide not to sell after all?
