Is there a thread with lots of photos on building either P200 engine, or using a Pinasco slave or Malossi (V-one/VR-one case)?

I know a bit about these engines but would like to see it being built with photos.

best best best bang for the buck is to buy these dvd's. i use them every time i build an engine, because it's always been just long enough that I lose a detail here or there.

yes they are pal format. your computer doesn't care (or at least my mac doesn't).

SIP did a video series of an engine rebuild as did That Scooter Thing.

There are also scans of workshop manuals available, which might also help.

And there used to be a really good step-by-step series of high-res assembly photos on a Dutch site, but I can't find it now. Maybe someone else has the link.

I just wrote them asking if they have a way to pay for a downloadable version. My Mac doesn't have a dvd drive Crying or Very sad emoticon

you have a usb-c or a usb port I'm sure, there are tons of options under $50 to have an optical drive. it still comes in handy sometimes.

You can buy a DVD player to hook up to your computer or TV for 30 bucks. They're worth it.
