AMADEUS, Welcome.
To achieve the original look of an Okrasa engine, your best deal is a Wolfsburg West replica okrasa kit. It is probably the cheapest also as you buy new cilinderheads, inlet , carbs and linkage. A second hand Okrasa is expensive and need probably a rebuild.

Or you can find someone that can make you 2 equal inlet manifolds that fits the split standard heads with 2 regular carbs from a split with smaller jets...Home made kit like ET
It also work if it is done correct.

@Et: how is the drive ?

Hello Zelensis thanks alot for your help and ideas. My 52 split runs really well just that with original 16rims and non sincronitzet gearbox goes slowly when a hill comes and it seems that engine doesn't brief enought well . Just i would like to keep original look but with a litle more power and that engine admission goes better.

Thank alot

Mika in Finland is making very nice replica runningboards.
I bought 2 sets from him and does exact look like my original one.
They are even stronger.:wink:

I agree.
Mika's split panels are super! I've bought several panels from him and have a few more already ordered. :)

It was also Mika who made the runningboards for Grundmann's -38. 😉
