Daydreaming brainstorming, whatever: Either this has been done, or somebody knows why it won't work.

Has anyone ever put a MM KEF engine in a Twin City KT? If so, what did you do to make it work?

I'm thinking the issues would fall in three categories:

Clutch? Will the KT clutch work in the KEF flywheel? Or will the KT flywheel fit on the KEF engine so you can use the KT clutch? But no ring gear on the KT flywheel.

Starter? KT is crank start. Will the KT transmission case miss the chunk of iron cut from it so that the KEF starter can be mounted? (without busting completely apart, of course!)

Front end/radiator/bolster/axle? Can the KT bolster be mounted to the KEF? Would it take a special fan, or would you have to use the KT water pump/flat belt/fan assembly?

Just thinking about it.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Can't see why it wouldn't work. Not sure why you would want to. Top end same. Cranks and bearings not. Have both here apart.
