MECOA has not made any new parts for the K&B 7.5 in years. That not any help, just what's happening.

Your best bet would be used K&B engines off eBay, Meccoa isn't a very reliable source being more like a black hole were many brand have disapeared over the years(HB,HP,K&B and many more).

Thats a shame they dont ship to SA, I had no problems lats time I ordered a few years ago, got what I wanted and very fast. There was an update on there site not that long ago regarding setting up old machines. I got an email a couple of days ago, in there they had there new 15cc marine engine. They really should get the machines set up to be making 7.5 piston and sleeves as there is a huge demand for them and no supply-what are they thinking?
There is plenty on ebay thats for sure!
Cheers,
Dion.
