    If it is a B2 then the engine that was listed on ebay may be what you are after. I have a spare engine and gearbox from a C3.

    Very nice start, Balki. Looks reasonably straight. Demannu has the right idea- contact seller before the motor goes to a junkyard.

    the eBay engine is for a 5CV, not a B2

    5hp not 10hp

    no good for the car you just bought

    someone ought buy it though to get the magneto if nothing else

    I have three already so do not need a fourth

    but it ought not go to the tip.......

    I figured that the ebay engine wasn't quite the right one, the carby is on the wrong side for a start, but in my book, the wrong motor is better than no motor!

    Nice pick up! Looks like you'll need some timber work done after you sort the mechanicals. Know a good coach builder : )

    You could stuff in a Chevy 5.0, Balki. There's always room for a small block Chevy.

    You know, I was thinking the same myself! But I'd probably look for an Offy four instead...

    Hi Balki
    Yes the motor on ebay is a 5cv motor. There are a few ways to tell if its a 5cv or 10 cv power plant.
    The 10 cv magneto is mounted on the right side of the crankcase driven via the timing gears in a noth south plane. The 5cv magneto is mounted on top of the timing gears in a east west plane. The magneto is the same on both motors.
    The 10 cv generator is mounted on the left side of the crankcase driven via the timing gears. The 5cv generator is mounted on the front of the crankshaft.
    The 10 cv carb is on the left side and the exhust on the right. The 5cv carb and exhust are both on the right.
    I do have a B2,B10 and B12 parts book which I can give you a copy of in a few weeks time. Also have 5cv parts book if you like a copy of please let me know.
    What are the other missing parts that you are after for the B2.

    easiest motor to fit would be a GS ... no cooling system to worry about... just need too hook it upto to an original gearbox and tailshaft. Should be fast given a GS donk will spin out to 8000rpm

    Frames are always going to be a little different from one to another, assuming this has a nailed on skin. You're genuinely best placed to recreate from original, don't assume it is a mirror L-R as some are deliberately a little different. One of the softer local hardwoods should do nicely.

    I have been told the B12 and B2 have a small difference in the crankcase and bell housing stud pattern. I have never try to see if this so. The B12 gearbox also would have fittings for front wheel brakes which the B2 does't have.
