The governor gear can be removed. The position of the cam gear wheel is free. The standard key must be used on all engine types, but may be modified in accordance with item 19. The crankshafts are interchangeable between K, E and T1 engines only. You cannot transpose complete crank, rod and piston assemblies between T1 and T2 engines. In all instances, the final stroke must not exceed 45.1mm. The T2 crank may be used as a replacement in the T1 engine, but it is not permitted to use the T1 crank in the T2 engine.
