I have recently acquired an Interceptor which is registered as 1966 although there are a few questions around that date. Crankcases are a matching pair of replacements as they have the same number stamped behind the cylinders but no engine numbers on the side. The engine is fitted with head gaskets and looks to have been modified with the original sealing ring replaced with a compression ring to seal against the gasket. I have included some images and wondered whether anyone has come across this conversion before or even knows of this bike, it seems to have lived in South Somerset since returning to the UK in the mid 90s.
