he made his own bed,I just let him lie in it. It was actually quite humorous. The best soap I ever read. LOL
Thats who got the short end of the dremel. Or should I say die grinder and gold plated file.
no those are not considered ports as they butt up against the case and are used to collect fuel that carries oil and helps cool the piston on the exhaust side (some versions of Novarossi 21's have those and they call them ports. It depends on how they want to market the engine.) and neither are the ones under the transfers technically under rule sets (look carefully at the side of the liner). however two strategectly placed holes in the piston to correspond with those at the right time can lead to significant power gains.(this allows the trapped mixture under the piston to be trasnsferred and utilized increasing volumetric effeciency in the crankcase)
This is an insider trick that sponsored drivers are given advantage to.
This is the way my nine port is arranged as I count them all.
As long as the ports don't allow transfer of fuel/air into the combustion chamber under the rules they are not considered ports.
There may turn out to be controversy here as this is the way the first P5 picco 21's were layed out in the early 80's. The configuration is almost identical and the factory called it a five port even though the extra liner ports went nowhere from the factory.
Just here to give the world grief.
