    The pistons will be there in B109 !.After taking B109 out last winter to re-seal we found out the pistons would match history and the heads were also worked over. When George installed the engine in 69? he had an idle problem due to a radical cam. After a few Conversations it may be possible George bought the R-5 long block. Ed

    I visited/inspected that Avanti many times when Joe E. owned it. It only had 6K miles then. I imagine it has about the same mileage now since it has primarily been in a museum since his ownership.

    started a topic R-5 will attend the International

    R-5 will attend the International

    Greg Cone will have his completed R-5 engine on display at the International. I believe it will be in the Singer Building at the Fairgrounds. It has taken him many years to put this together and it's really something to behold.
