what would you like to know?
is it painted black? or bare aluminum?

71 and up were black,

70 was bare aluminum

the early ones had a 3/4" crankshaft, the later ones had a 7/8" shaft

Asssuming the engine swap was done decently and the clutches line up etc, you have a mill that is easier to get parts for and well understood. I think it's about 18 horsepower?

I'm pretty sure it's painted black. So what could be done to improve the performance on the little rotax?
