Found this in my email from when I purchased an Aurora, don't think they have been posted before so I thought I would stuff them here. Pretty amazing shots...

Very impressive engine, I could show that engine to 150 of my mechanic friends and would all say it was real, but would question the plastic gears and large hex head screws, what are they driving anyway? Mike thank you for the fantastic photos!
