Greetings,

I'm buying a gen3 HKS 700E, and I'm trying to figure out how much was changed from the gen2 engine. The only description I've read makes me think that the heads are the main, if not only change. I figured it would be easy to compare parts manuals for the two generations, but that hasn't been so easy. I have the parts manual for engines after SN-100600, but I can't find one for the engines before that. Does anyone have a copy of the pre 100600 parts pdf they can send?

Thanks,
Rusty

One of our smarter members suggested using the wayback machine site to look at the parts that were posted on the HKS site before they went to the PDF manual. Sadly, they changed the format of the parts numbering completely, so there's no way to match old to new parts. Rats.

Does anyone know for sure if the gearbox and front cover is compatible between the pre and post SN-100600 engines?
