In the Vintage Motorscooter club magazine there are occasionally adverts from a small firm that make aluminium engine castings, they may be able to help you.

Jean has all the back issues so she may be able to find the advert.

You need MFC in Doncaster. They have an excellent reputation. I've used them to make JAP v twin crankcases, barrels, heads etc. You should contact them, they are the best.          Nick.
