    From what I understand, the 447’s are prone to cylinder damage and its pretty rare to find replacement jugs for them. I also have heard that the 447 engines are identical to the 377 (which are a dime a dozen). Has anyone had success with puting jugs/pistons from a 337 into a 447? Is it that...

    I've recently re-visited an old project. This is a school technology class project that has been in progress off & on for several years. However, I am determined to see it move under it's own power and groom some ski trails. The project started several years ago when a local community member...

    Hey out there, smarter people than me, I was hoping this wasn't the case, but after being a good little boy and doing some reading in the forums here I've come to the conclusion that my crank bearing is shot. When I had the engine out i didn't notice any grinding or wiggle in the shaft but I...

    What Compression, does the Standard 377/380 use? Was there a Low Compression Head, and a High Compression Head, maybe for the Mts? Did they ever make a Fuel Injected 377/380? Was the 377/380(62mm x 61mm) 368.8cc ever called something else? Thanks Rich
